My name is Marlia. I come from Cyprus.
I am a sacred song collector, passionate soundscaper, handpan player, circle-singing facilitator, recording artist, vocalist, guitarist, live-looping performer, composer, Music Academy owner, yoga instructor, journey weaver, nature lover and so much more!
Through music, I surrender to the current. I explore the deeper realms of life's creative energy, connecting to the breath and becoming aware of the natural flow of life which supports us to heal and transform.
Recently I started an online Music/Mindfulness Academy in order to spread my online lessons and bring people together, to create the foundation of an online community based on a mindful spirit and co-teachings; a place to belong to, a collective to call Home.
This is the name of the online academy too: HOME https://onlinehomeacademy.eu/
I live every day as an eternal student, empowering people from all walks of life to explore, embody and express their one true voice for the happiness of all beings.
I am infinitely curious about the body and the breath, plants, art, music, magic, beauty and I am committed to expand my devotional integration work universally with people who are equally eager to explore this Higher Self state.
Every month I record and release independently one single original song which has been inspired by my travels on Earth, arranged, recorded and mixed by me as I am on-the-go.
And every few months, I release a new album, followed by live performances, vocal/breathing workshops, empowerment retreats, musical collaborations, high-energy concerts, sacred journey experiences and participation in global festivals.
With a growing presence in the world of ‘Ceremonial/Medicine music’ and the rising global community of people who are committed to residing in harmony with the Earth, I AM.
Help me spread my vision, my music, my passion, my positive vibes, my gifts, my contributions to this world, by supporting me in any way which is possible to you. Following me on my social media, commenting on my posts, buying my music, offering to support/organise a sound healing/silent meditation event in your area, requesting an online lesson with me (vocal, handpan, guitar, percussion, yoga, breathing lessons available), recommending my music/workshops to your friends, joining one of my vocal empowerment retreats on Greek islands -- every action helps!
As my teachers continue to inspire me, I use my own true voice to teach others. I started teaching classical guitar when I finished my Royal Academy studies at age 16; then started teaching English after completing my Uni studies, then came vocal/guitar lessons as I continuously study with different teachers around the globe. As this particular instrument came into my life in 2018, I have started offering handpan lessons.
I am here on this planet to evolve into my full potential as a human being. By refocusing inside me, I experience a state of unity with my True Self characterised by one quality: peace. People I meet along my path very often tell me that I radiate trust, respect, open communication and flexibility. For me it is pure joy to be your active listener, to provide information, to make suggestions for your orientation and to help you establish healthy life connections and relationships.
There is no doubt that music is made of sounds, vibrations and silence, organised in time. Thus, music can be an underlying universal language that encompasses everything in our reality, connects people everywhere and can be used as a tool for personal and collective insight. All 4 experiential group workshops I am offering, named Rising Voice, Hold me Close, Mystic Dance and Cacao Blessed use different aim activities and games and have one goal in common: to find our true voice.
Peace & Unity Project
Welcome to my crowd-funding project.
This is a peace and unity project on raising awareness about the Green Line in my home, Cyprus, promoting harmony among community members and contributing to the creation of peaceful gatherings through circle-singing and dancing. The project includes a singing workshop with vocal, breathing and movement exercises through which the participants can get through the layers that stop them from being able to just be present and let music flow through them. When vocalizing a melody, body and soul are being rearranged, whether we realise it or not...
