 "I have seen Kavisha concerts for years and have her Dvd's  so when I heard she had a choir it seemed the one to try. It has met my expectations being an informal fun class but we do learn. My son- in- law mentioned my singing round the house has improved ! You can change anyrhing you want!!!!" Ange Choir member

"Your beautiful warm heart, music and songs were the perfect antidote for us here in Melbourne at present when we are in the midst of so much doom and gloom.The feedback from all the singers has been overwhelmingly positive and grateful for your sessions - and we can't thank you enough!" Jonathon Welch AM  ( Choir Of Hard Knocks Founder) Melbourne International Singers Festival

 "Mazzella’s voice has an edge of drama even at its softest, and when she really sings out it can be storming or exultant"

KAVISHA'S LATEST ALBUM 2020

CD-cover-300.jpg

 Listen here to  Empty Sky Sacred Songs and Chants  

 Dear friends , I am so pleased to be releasing my new and 8th album .Empty Sky Sacred Songs and Chants is an album of 11 songs made up of traditional and original chants I have composed .I was lucky to  collaborate with respected veteran world musician Nicolas Lyon in his wooden cottage studio in Malmesbury Central Victoria. Together we  create this soulful ,acoustic album that's sure to become a good companion for yoga, meditation practice or simply chilling out. It features my voice, nylon string guitar, tibetan bells ,drum and recorder. I am also accompanied by the amazing Nicolas Lyon on bowed double bass, harp and glockenspiel.

 Listen   to Empty Sky Sacred Songs and Chants 

 

My dear chant mentor Jarek Czechowicz and me 

sm_Kavisha_Jarek_2013EMPTY_SKY.jpg

The songs include  a soulful version of Jarek Czechowicz's "Love, I call Your Name ", a reworking of the popular "Magnificence"  by Peter Makena, my original melodies to traditional wisdom texts the  Gayatri Mantra, Heart Sutra, Om Mani Padmi Hum, and the words of the mystic poets such as Kabir and Saint Francis. Finally ending with a rallying call for Mother Earth responding to a talk by  Eco-Theologian Matthew Fox who I met at the Common Dreams Conference in Sydney in 2019.

They are holy songs for crazy times! I hope you enjoy them ! love Kavisha. December 2020

EMPTY SKY Reviews 2020 

"What a beautiful CD it is! Especially in these distressing times, it has provided a calming and uplifting mood when it was most needed. THANK YOU." Jeannie Marsh- Melbourne singer and choir leader 

 "What it is ..is it calms me and makes me feel grounded and secure and it talks to a part of me which is beyond words .There's something about being from different traditions on one album that makes it absorbing. It touches different emotions from lament to uplift " Padma Locana ,Yoga  teacher Melbourne  March 2020

FACEBOOK LIVE tune in here to experience EMPTY SKY  during the lockdown Aug 2020 

 REVIEW by ROBBIE GREIG  

"Empty Sky is a departure from Kavisha’s usual storytelling style of songwriting. In this her latest album she is a spiritual wayfarer, a seeker after mystical truth as expressed in both Eastern and European religions. Empty Sky is a pilgrimage to places in the world and in the mind where the sacred is still honoured.

Through a selection of prayers, kirtans, chants, devotional poetry and songs of praise, Kavisha weaves a spell of beauty and tranquility. Flowing along like a gentle river, hypnotic, repetitive, timeless, it’s no surprise that that the album is intended as an aid to meditation and relaxation. But it is Kavisha’s unique vocal qualities that are front and centre of this musical journey. From the first note, her voice grabs you and holds you captive right through to the end.

There is a naturalness and intimacy about the delivery that highlights the essential warmth and richness of her voice. In a suitably understated way, the string-based instrumental accompaniment provided by Kavisha and Nicholas Lyon does everything to support and highlight the fine vocals.With Empty Sky Kavisha has offered us the gift of love and peace in troubled times. "

 Kavisha Mazzella AM Biography       

Aria award winner, songbird and folkloric explorer Kavisha's original song's lyrical ingredients include humour, poetry, social justice and the spiritual. Combine this prowess with the voice of an angel and you have the experience of a Kavisha concert. Singing in English, Italian and other languages, she will take you on an uplifting boundary riding journey of well-crafted  stories and songs ringing with echoes of Celtic, Fado and Gypsy influences that will strike a resounding chord within. In 2011 she was awarded an Australia Day Honour for services to music and community.
