 "This is how the heart makes a duet of wonder and grief." - Mark Nepo

Jami Sieber and Kim Rosen have created a transformative convergence of poems and music that emerge from the heartbreak, gratitude and wake up call of this moment in our lives and in the life of our world. Words spoken by Kim Rosen from the poems of Langston Hughes, Stanley Kunitz, Marie Howe, Ellen Bass, Lucille Clifton, W.S. Merwin, Deena Metzger, Mark Nepo, Yehuda Amichai, and  Mary Oliver rise and fall in the evocative waves of Jami’s music . 

Jami and Kim have been facilitating explorations of these difficult, necessary themes for many years. This offering is a culmination of their shared love of the realness, rawness and intimacy that arises when we turn towards all levels of letting go. 

In this moment in history, every one of us has been touched and changed by the personal, societal and planetary loss we are undergoing.The magic of Jami's cello in resonance with the poems offer a portal through which you are invited to allow healing, inspiration and awakening. 

Jami and Kim are joined by NW musicians Nancy Rumbel (ocarina, oboe, english horn), Hans Teuber (clarinet, sax, trumpet, flute), Sean Woolstenhulme (guitar), Evan Schiller (cymbals), and Greg Campbell (percussion).

Jami Sieber & Kim Rosen

"Feast of Losses" is an enduring ode to this moment in history, a seamless interplay of grief and joy, loss and gratitude, life and death. After hearing these themes held and offered so beautifully in the language of music and poetry, I discovered a new conversation within myself, a deeper capacity to hold these tensions constructively in my own heart and thus engage the world more fully. ” - Diane Rawlins (Listener)
