Supporting Costa Rican Musicians in the Community

May 12, 2024 | Activities and Excursions

Celebrating Music and Community

Last night was a testament to the power of music and community as we had the pleasure of attending an incredible album release event at KLEI in Nosara. MaryPaz and Lucas, a duo that holds a special place in our hearts for being among the first musicians to perform at Con Smania CR retreat center, graced us with their soulful melodies as they unveiled their first album.

A Night to Remember: Album Release at KLEI

Accompanied by the talented Dani and Ruben, and featuring the enchanting voice of MaryPaz’s daughter, the evening was filled with captivating sounds that echoed through the hearts of everyone present. It was more than just a concert; it was a gathering of souls united by the universal language of music. Community members danced and sang along, creating a magical atmosphere that can only be experienced firsthand.

The Joy of Live Music in a Retreat Setting

Integrating live music into a retreat can transform the experience, adding an element of joy and connection that fosters a deeper sense of community. At Con Smania CR, we believe in the healing and unifying power of music, which is why we regularly feature live performances as part of our retreat programs. Whether it’s a yoga session accompanied by acoustic guitar or drum, or a group meditation with crystal sound bowls, the addition of live music elevates the retreat experience to new heights.

Supporting Local Artists and Musicians

One of our core values at Con Smania CR is supporting local talent. By hosting events similar to last night’s album release, we not only provide a platform for artists to showcase their work but also enrich our community’s cultural landscape. We take pride in discovering and promoting local musicians who bring fresh and diverse sounds to our retreat center.

Creating a Space for Connection

Music has the unique ability to bring people together, crossing barriers of language, culture, and background. At Con Smania CR, our retreats are designed to create a space where individuals can connect with each other and with themselves on a deeper level. The album release was a beautiful example of the power of this, as people from all walks of life came together to share in the joy of music.

Looking Forward to More Music

Our goal is to provide a venue where artists can thrive, and our community can come together to celebrate the arts, deep in our souls. If you are a retreat leader looking to add music to your offerings or a musician interested in playing at Con Smania CR, we’d love to hear from you.

Final Thoughts

The concert was a reminder of why we do what we do at Con Smania CR. Music is more than just entertainment; it’s a catalyst for connection, growth, and healing. We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a vibrant and passionate community, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for music at our retreat center.

Thank you to MaryPaz, Lucas, Dani, Ruben, the organizers at KLEI, and all who attended for making it an unforgettable evening. Here’s to many more nights of music, laughter, and community.
