An Unusual Opportunity

In two days my producer, Jarome, will be arriving in Beijing and I’m very excited!  He is coming here to assist with several music projects that we are working on. One of our tasks is for me to learn the basics of Cubase (the music program that Jarome uses to record in his studio). In order [...]

A Musical Evening

I have been working with my vocal coach this week on singing certain pieces from ‘Fire and Gold’ to prepare for future live performances.  As there are several harmonies on some of the pieces, it can be quite technical figuring out which parts to sing live and which harmonies to leave in the background.  Hard work, [...]

Where there is love…

I recently finished composing the last piece for the marriage CD that I am working on.  I am thrilled about it as it will be a combination of three quotations in one song.  It consists of a short passage from Abdu’l-Baha on love (which I have included as the ‘Thought of the day’ below), an [...]

Ayyam-i-Ha!

A few nights ago I went carolling with my children and a few friends in the neighborhood for the festival of Ayyam-i-Ha.  For Baha’is this is a time of bringing cheer to others, visiting the poor and needy, giving gifts and enjoying the company of family and friends.  We surprised some of our neighbors by singing several joyful [...]

Breathing

A few months ago I started vocal lessons with a good friend.  It has been such an awakening experience as I have had to relearn basic vocal techniques.  Correct breathing is one of the most essential parts of singing and I am working hard to correct some of the poor habits I have picked up.  [...]

Pursuing Music

Recently a new friend asked “Elika, I’m interested to know how your path in music came about… was it always music for you?”  I began playing the piano from the age of five.  My mother was a piano teacher so I was always surrounded by music while growing up.  As [...]
