A secular humanist Jewish chanting ceremony that is both musically adventurous and spiritually meaningful.
Segulalelo-lelo-lelalelo. The name compounds a Kabbalistic amulet and an Acid Mothers Temple freakout. These are the influences and the means through which we are remedied. This is our Acid Mussar Temple. .
Segulalelo aspires to create a communal ritual, a form of chant drawing from the Texts.
“Chant frees words from their lingual casings. Phrases bisect into feelings and rhythm. Focus blurs and sharpens on the rises and falls of a tongue. We hear drummers. We deepen understanding by repeating one meaningful thought rather than by plodding through so many. The beat is our breath. Our breath is our life. We breath together, we live together, we beat.”
Segulalelo consists of members of DeLeon, Zion 80 and Sha’ar.
