La Dulce Vida

La Dulce Vida
Seattle, Washington
"La Dulce Vida"  is a 5-piece musical group from Seattle, WA. We play acoustic folk/medicine songs from South America and beyond, but always from our hearts. Our music is meditative and uplifting, invoking the medicines of Mother Nature and helping connecting us with sacred elemental energies within. We celebrate gratitude for all the blessings in our lives - the joys as well as the sorrows - hence our group name which translates to "The Sweet Life" in Spanish. We are Hernan Savastano on guitar and vocals, Nicholas Coniaris on cello, Elyse Raupp-Gardner on vocals, David Watson on percussion, and Jordan Furrow on bass.

We've been playing together since late 2016 and have performed at various local festivals, including IMAGINE Festival 2016-2018, Cascadia NW Festival  2017, Resonance Restival (2017-18), the ZAG Concert Series (Sept, 2017 and Oct 2018), and a number of house concerts and fundraisers, including MAPS Zendo (Mar 2018), Standing Rock at Om Culture (Oct 2016) and Water Sines Studios (Jan 2017) with our dear friends YAIMA and OMTARA.
