Feminine Fusion

S4-37: Water Music


“Water, stories, the body, all the things we do, are mediums that hid and show what’s hidden.”  – Rumi


Cleansing. Healing, Flowing. Powerful. Transformative. These are words that apply to water, and to music.  Each are vital to life.  This episode is devoted to music inspired by water.
