“macicais a Polish song spell created to help women awaken and embody their full power.
The song was written during a full moon in a flow of trance improvisation, as part of Odna Experienceof the ceremonial process, with a Canadian-Egyptian- Adam Hus, who beautifully surrendered to the feminine energy and kept an open-minded, allowing and patient space for the creativity of both artists to flourish. The video was posted on Cafe De Anatolia’s main Youtube channel:
Hear the artist’s artistic response to Polish law’s restrictions on abortion in a hypnotic lunar valley in the oasis of Siwa. Odna dances in union with a beautiful dress designed in collaboration with local women of the country, embracing the folk culture of Slavic and Amazigh tribes.
This song was born from a fire of inner conflict, a conflict that I believe is present in the collective body of current human consciousness, but rooted in the depths of our collective amnesia for the true power of creation and remembrance of who women are and what women’s bodies are capable of.
How can we honor life and agency at the same time? How can we remember our power and the fact that our will over our body cannot be taken away from us even when it is written on paper as a law? Maybe we can just feel it, again. I believe in a conscious relationship with the body, a relationship that enables conscious creation and conscious release from creation.
Until we get there together, men and women, I believe we must honor accidents, emergencies and the violation of free will, in which case our society and modern medicine are there to help us. – Odna
The movement started more than a year ago; women’s rights in Poland, and then recently in the United States, have been challenged and threatened by a desire to control new life and “the divine ability and right of mothers to decide what is best for us and our children,” she said. Odna believes that women were chosen by creation to be the guardians of life and that no government force will ever change that.
One of the main causes of our company is to be an active participant and supporter of discussions on gender equality and women’s rights nationally and globally. We believe that through art and music we can express so much more and have an impact when we have no other motive for it. Having options, freedom of speech and equality have always been goals our company strives for. It was a great collaboration with Odna and it was very well accepted by people. Passion for social justice combined with passion for music and art will always give you great results. – Monika Ilieva (Co-founder of Café De Anatolia)
Once again, Cafe De Anatolia has placed itself at the forefront of women’s rights and feminist struggles. A label that offers not only high quality music but the constant idea of sending a positive message to the world.
It is important for our company to support artists and help them express themselves in the best possible way. Our company has always been socially and politically responsible and our goal has always been to be an active participant and supporter of these discussions – Nikola Iliev aka Nickarth (co-founder of Cafe De Anatolia)
