The Voices of Gaia sang together for nine rich years in the 90's. Inspired by their love of song as a healing medium their material reflected their journey of discovery of their femininity and their delight in the beauty and simplicity of nature.
Based in the North Coast of NSW Australia the group's journey together took them to interesting places. It allowed them to touch the hearts of men and women as far afield as the UK, Finland and Russia and taught them much that enriched their own lives.
Their international debut was creating the opening ritual for the Woman and Earth conference in St. Petersburg in December 1997. Nearer to home their performances included The Australian Homebirth Conference (Byron Bay, '99), The Australian Women's Music Festival (Sydney, '97), The Living City Expo (Gold Coast Arts Centre, '97), Lismore Folk Festival ('97), a touring performance of our own show "The Changing faces of Gaia" ('94-'95), Maleny Folk Festival ('92), Brisbane Body Health Harmony festival ('92) and the National Women's Music Festival (Lismore '91).
The group's first album 'Womansong' features 17 original and traditional pieces, recorded live in 1992. An uplifting expression of feminine energy, the chants, songs and soundscapes of this recording have been in great demand for use in healing circles and rituals.
Their second recording 'The Voices of Gaia' was birthed late in '96. A more fully produced album it still retained an earthy flavour with a passionate message of womanpower. Two tracks gained recognition by winning music industry awards. "Gaia Rap" won the 1995 North Coast Entertainment Dolphin Award for Best Environmental Song and in 1996 "Heart Mother Crone" won Best Devotional Song.
