Seda Bağcan Releases New Music Video, “I Am That I Am”

 Turkish Mantra Singer Seda Bağcan Releases New Music Video, “I Am That I Am” on National Stress Awareness Day – April 16th.

The Song is the Title Track from Seda’s New US Album Release “I Am That I Am”.

Los Angeles, California (April 7, 2015) – The trinity of healing, music, and science has guided Turkish mantra singer Seda Bağcan through a musical life that began for her at six-years-old. At that young age, Seda accompanied the Ankara Radio Turkish Music Orchestra and Choir. This experience continues to inspire her today. With a voice that has been called “Stirring, Moving, and Coming from Heaven,” Seda’s new US album release, “I Am That I Am” has spawned an inspirational and healing music video for the title track which will be released April 16th, National Stress Awareness Day!

Seda’s “I Am That I Am” music video is released in conjunction with National Stress Awareness Day, an occasion initiated by the Health Resource Network (HRN) in 1992 to raise awareness of stress. An actively practicing yoga teacher, Bağcan’s dedication to personal development, optimum health, curing disease, overcoming dangerous addictions, calming the conscience, and increasing personal awareness also drives her musical performances.

Seda is an advocate of National Stress Awareness Day and says, “Everybody should always take a moment to relax, exercise, lower their blood pressure and take care of their mind and their bodies.”

Directed by Tayfun Delice from Tersine Fimler, Seda is quite possibly the only native of Turkey today performing as mantra singer. It was Seda’s desire to unite the sounds of her homeland with the mantras that resulted in her first three albums: Sunrise, Remember, and Sufi Soul/Neyim. After living in Germany for 11 years, Bağcan returned to Turkey to record and release “I Am That I Am,” writing all of the compositions on the album.

When not creating and performing music, she is just as likely to be leading national and international workshops and seminars where music and science are incorporated into the practice of healing.

Seda Bağcan’s unique path has taken her from performing with the TRT Ankara Polyphonic Youth Choir and the Ankara Opera and Ballet as a child, to her studies in electronics engineering. As an adult, she has trained to become a master of Reiki and Healer of Reconnection, teaching Signature Cell Healing, Acutonics Sound Healing, and Deeksha.

An actively practicing yoga teacher, Bağcan’s dedication to personal development, optimum health, curing disease, overcoming dangerous addictions, calming the conscience, and increasing personal awareness also drives her musical performances.  It was in 1990 during her practice of Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga, and Jivamukti Yoga, and later the teachings of Kundalini Yoga and Naam Yoga, that Bağcan discovered mantra music. When not creating and performing music, she is just as likely to be leading national and international workshops and seminars where music and science are incorporated into the practice of healing.

Wikipedia says, “National Stress Awareness Day is a good opportunity to take a deep breath and relax. Much research has shown a negative effect stress has on the immune system, mostly through studies where participants were subjected to a variety of viruses. In one study, individuals caring for a spouse with dementia, representing the stress group, saw a significant decrease in immune response when given an influenza-virus vaccine compared to a non-stressed control group. Chronic stress takes a more significant toll on your body than acute stress does. Stress can raise blood pressure, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, increase vulnerability to anxiety and depression contribute to infertility, and hasten the aging process. Results of one study demonstrated that individuals who reported relationship conflict lasting one month or longer have a greater risk of developing illness and show slower wound healing.”

“Traditional Instruments Set” Now Available

Three amazing albums, LUNA, Best Of Yoshida Brothers and Inspiration (by ViVA Girls) are now available as a Traditional Instruments Set at Domo Store.

In spite of the name of this set, they are anything but traditional except of their instruments. All three albums are the great examples of East-meets-West and the perfect marriage of modern and traditional sounds.

traditional_set

Domo Traditional Music Set includes:
LUNA by Luna
- Inspiration by ViVA Girls
- Best Of Yoshida Brothers by Yoshida Brothers

Luna performs a traditional Korean instrument, call the Gayageum. With the exception of Luna’s instrument, the music she performs is anything but traditional. With inspired performances and dazzling skill, Luna has become a virtual sensation amassing scores of YouTube views, exhibiting her remarkable ability to bridge Eastern culture with Western influences.

ViVA Girls are China’s hottest instrumental supergroup set to take the world by storm with their innovative mix of modern and classical Chinese meets Western musical elements. The majority of ViVA Girls members are graduates of China’s Central Conservatory of Music, the most prestigious in China.  Its equivalent would be the Julliard School of performing arts in New York, New York.

Musically, they’re magic, having been classically trained and hailing from some of the most prestigious Schools and Universities in the world.  To the eye, ViVA Girls present one of the most impressive and visually pleasing concert performances one can experience.  Their East meets West twist on classical and pop music is especially popular with American audiences.

Yoshida Brothers are the Japan’s young masters of the ancient tsugaru-shamisen, a three-stringed instrument resembling the banjo and with a style originating from northern Japan with intricate and fast picking.

The Yoshida Brothers have now taken the tsugaru-shamisen further than any other modern musician, practically reinventing its sound, leading to a musical style both firmly rooted in the traditions of the past and boldly looking forward to the future.
