Voyage of Poumis life
In the first part of my life I was essentially a dancer and a choreographer, all though I was painting and chanting
Starting in Maurice Béjarts company, than had my own company with creations all over (Europe, Mediterranean countries, Africa, New York, Antilles, and a lot in India )
In India I learned mantras and prayers on the banks of river Ganges, than started a series of cds focused on Indian spiritual chants and after, Tibetan: Incantations, Incandescence, Hung and Rudraksha. The last one just born, is Malkhout with texts of Bible, in Hebrew, Greek and Arameen.
I love the sharing of this energy with the audience in concerts, each time happens a deep experience. Different programs are available: centered on a specific tradition or a voyage to all.
I also dance at the end of the program when the place makes it possible
All my life has been focused on self knowledge and self development through body language and yoga, by teaching classes and workshops. My aim is to bound art, therapy and spirituality (in a cosmic view, I wrote a book about Sri Balayogi: The Alchemy of Silence).
The chants are inspired by a deep research with great spiritual masters, who gave there assents for singing these texts.
Painting and healing are also important in an other space of my life.
Everything is done to open the hart and to bring peacefulness
