The 2017-2018 season of the Great Falls Forum continues on Thursday, April 19th, featuring musician and Maine Academy of Modern Music instructor Kafari, with a talk entitled “Seeking Wholeness in the Creative Process: Practice, Performance, and Community.”
‘Kafari’ is the alias of Ahmad Hassan Muhammad, a Portland-based pianist, beatmaker, bluegrass percussionist, and community artist. A self-proclaimed “sound healer,”Kafari’s music career has been guided by a desire to be whole, and a belief that tapping into the infinite treasure trove of creativity within each of us is part of the healing work through which we can realize wholeness.
This deeply personal presentation will examine how we think about creativity, what place it can have in our lives, and the process of personal creativity becoming shared with a community. In the process, Kafari will share some of the ideas and methods that have most shaped and inspired his music career. This talk is intended for all people of all ages and walks of life.
