Cenote Rising is a performance that continually evolves and changes based on the energy and feeling of each space. While each iteration is a sung ritual and invocation that recalls the sacredness of Cenotes in Latin American tradition....every moment considers and asks questions between singer and audience. The air is purified with snakes as staffs that breathe healing smokes through the audience, cleansing and energetically bonding with those present.

we hold space for our darkness, our love, and our will to move forward with each other and ourselves

portal together to a resonant world of live bass vibration, thundering glass, and manually modulated volume

Tears that I've cried as I've doubted my worth

Cleanse my path forward as I walk the earth

Keeping me flowing so I can keep on going

I push back to myself

i push back to myself

I push back through myself

Closer to that knowing

Closer to that knowing

Closer to that knowing

Closer to that knowing

There's a fire in me that burns any dread

it then lights my way to that journey ahead

There's a trail of ashes that follows behind

Forget how far I've come, it's always there to remind me

remind me

THERE'S A VOICE IN MY HEAD

THAT CUTS THROUGH THAT FOG

IT TELLS ME I'M NOT GOOD ENOUGH AND I'M DOING THIS WRONG

I SHOUT OUT THROUGH THE DISTANCE TO CUT THROUGH THAT HAZE.

WITH EACH REBEL YELL I SCREAM THERE COMES A BRIGHTER DAY

A BRIGHTER DAY

A BRIGHTER DAY

A BRIGHTER DAY

onward, onward

onward onward

onward onward

I push back to myself

I push back through myself

I push back to myself and right back through that self
