BRIEF HISTORY of FOS
The "Fragrance of Sound" ® was birthed in 2002 by Mari, K. Bach and Erial Ally. Mari had been playing with the trio for years doing shows / events in California when Mari and K. Bach decided to change the name to "Fragrance of Sound." In 2005 K. Bach moved on to pursue her solo career and later, a partnership with a well known vocal instructor.
Throughout the years, there have been incarnations of the group, one of which included Kaiumari and Dwain Hicks, who Mari calls a mad man of modern classical and micro-tonal. Most recently, 2009-15, Esteban Ayotl has collaborated with Kaiumari and the " Fragrance of Sound" ® and in 2010 Jeffry Fisher (Stand up Bass, author, auricular therapist, and Tai Chi Instructor) collaborated on some creative projects. Ron Wagner, master percussionist from Cirque du Soleil - shows "Zed" and "Iris" is currently contributing to the new CD release and the project. Mari has also been collaborating with Cynthia Miller, student of Margarate Lynch's Tapping into Wealth Certified Coaching Program.
I hope you enjoy the music and presentations as much as we enjoy bringing them to you. FOS
