Music is a connection, a bridge between countries connecting human hearts
Mirabai Ceiba is a duo: guitarist / singer Markus Sieber and singer / harpist / pianist Angelika Baumbach. They come from different parts of the world. Markus is from east Germany. Angelika was born in Tucson, Arizona and grew up in a small village near Mexico City.
Markus and Angelika met for the first time at a street fair in Edinburgh, Scotland and instantly fell in love. Markus had a successful acting career at the time and Angelika traveled the world as a singer / songwriter. The newly formed couple decided to share their love with the world through uplifting music immersed in spirituality, passion and beauty.
Together, they created a new musical style combining the Gurmukhi mantras from the Kundalini yoga tradition with original songs in English and Spanish, which reflect the influence of Native Americans and also draw words of wisdom from Rumi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Guru Nanak and Yogi Bhajan. The combination of elements from all different influences and soucres gives their music power and uniqueness, like a gift from the universe. At their concerts, the listeners are transported into a state of awakening, inner healing and rejuvenation, discovering a source of deep inner strength.
Their music stems from pure love and devotion. It is calming, peaceful and very meditative.
The musical duo considers music to be a universal language having the power to unite all the nations, cultures and traditions of the world.
