Songs From The Sacred Fire
We will share songs of power and beauty, in the style of the Sacred Fire of Itzatchilatlan /
Red Path, with simple drum and rattle accompaniment, to help us to lift up our prayers and
send them like arrows to the heart of the fire. Our songs are the life blood of our work in
this tradition; they can help us to discover our authentic voice and align with our true
purpose in this life. Though them we can experience great healing. It’s our songs that give
our prayers wings and it’s though the fire that they connect us to the spirit world.
Sunny Davidson is a singer-songwriter, song carrier, ceremonial drummer and multi instrumentalist. During his time
journeying with the Sacred Fire of Itzatchilatlan and drumming for tobacco circles over the last 15 years, he has been
blessed to learn many beautiful and powerful songs to honour the four sacred directions and invoke the spirits of the
teacher plants. This has in turn profoundly influenced his own song writing. Sunny, an accomplished musician, has
spent over two decades performing with various bands such as Dragonsfly and Celtech and in 2016 joined Michael
Franti during the European leg of his Soulrocker World Tour on mandolin, vocals and bass.
Sunny has also been a member of the Star Dance Orchestra for some years, playing and singing for the Star Dance in
Spain and Israel under the guidance of indigenous leaders of the Red Path from Ecuador and Mexico. With the
completion of his vision quest in Spain, also in 2016, he received the blessing to hold sweat lodges or temazcals. Since
then he’s been sharing these songs from the sacred fire in this context and in song circles and workshops. He also
regularly gives concerts as a solo performer.
