Poranguí To Embark On ‘The Beauty Way Tour’ To Foster Immersive Musical Healing Experiences
Multicultural musician, healer, and educator Poranguí will return to Salt Lake City, UT’s Clubhouse on South Temple on June 1st to foster and create an intentionally curated container to experience the healing power of music and authentic expression.
Joined by co-facilitator and embodiment guide Ashley Klein, the two will embark on The Beauty Way Tour, offering participants an evening of improvised and transformative world soul music, dance, and sound healing in efforts to connect with themselves and their community. The tour will oversee 11 dates spanning the West Coast in the month of June.
The four-hour journey will open with a ceremony to activate the voice through communal singing, transforming the space into an expedition of rhythm, sound, and movement. Mid-journey, participants will embody themselves and channel their own energy through Poranguí’s extended live music performance and Klein’s vocal guidance and live visual projections, concluding with an integration experience to return to the greater community with medicine of the night.
“The live experience is where it’s at. I think it’s really important to bring music into a live, vibrant way and respond to the moment, to the audience, and what’s in the space to capture that energy. My guiding force is to always to make things more beautiful than I find them,” Poranguí said.
The Beauty Way Tour 2022
Taking from the inspiration of Diné (Navajo) teachings from both Poranguí & Ashley’s beloved Southwest, The Beauty Way Tour and Porangui’s forthcoming album, Beauty Way, encapsulate a way of living within balance and harmony with the unfolding of life. Walking the Beauty Way together, we weave ourselves more deeply into the fabric of the earth, herself.
Along with his 25-years of international work experience as an artist, musician, healer, and educator, Poranguí stands as a cross-cultural leader in today’s intentional and medicinal dance scene. His global recognition to summon meditative and dance-invoking scenes while uplifting the spirit and transcending both himself and the audience, Poranguí’s live music experiences heals and fosters individual and collective well-being, realigning the cultures of the world into a harmonious balance.
