Hear men’s voices raised in song and delirious chanting—a rare expression of what Robert Bly calls “masculinity of a feeling sort.” Enjoy a full unedited evening of songs from around the world, including Sufi, West African and Indian traditions, accompanied by virtuoso tabla and guitar performances. Includes a primer on the songs’ meaning from Robert Bly, and a small offering of poems in the final ten minutes, recited by attendees of the Minnesota Men’s Conference.
This is an exclusive recording of the 1995 Minnesota Men’s Conference. Register and attend the next Conference in Ely, Minnesota by visiting http://www.minnesotamensconference.com
Founded by Robert Bly in 1984, the Minnesota Men’s Conference celebrates the telling of old stories, the gifts of poetry and music, and opening our hearts to grief, wildness, and joy. We all want richness and meaning in our everyday lives; this six-day conference in September is a unique opportunity to speak honestly in a community of men.
