Chakra Kahn at the Timucua White House.

Chakra Kahn (Alexandra Love) was performing with Beautiful Chorus and special guest Emily Fontano at the Timucua White House, (2000 S Summerlin Ave Orlando, FL 32806). The music had a deep, personal writing style, along with eccentric cadences and lush harmonies. In concert with DiViNCi’s vast, poly-rhythmic, orchestral soundscapes is perfectly matched. Together, their sound is like smooth electricity, an intense, bass-rich, melodic wind. Their newest album, The Cope Aesthetic, which was released June 3, 2017, is a more jazz-inspired, electronic soundscape than anything else the group has created thus far. She explained on stage that she lost her hair at a very early age, and came to realize that how she looks to other does not define who she is.

Amazingly on the evening of the Pulse nightclub tragedy, Chakra Kahn performed a piece titled Pulse at the venue. The lyrics seemed to eerily predict the events that was about to happen. "Their is a Pule and its fading, but we claim we are still alive."

Elizabeth St. Hilaire was the visual artist working on stage during the performance. Elizabeth usually works with collage but this evening the was painting with acrylics. The painting depicted a female sun bather from perhaps the 1920s. She swayed to the music clearly inspired by the music.

Due to my impending divorce, I am no longer ALLOWED to sell my artwork. I therefore have no means of income. I apologize to any interested buyers. I will post when I am again allowed to earn a living.
