Today is Juneteenth – FREEDOM DAY – the annual celebration every June 19th throughout the United States commemorates a Union army general announcing federal orders in the city of Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865, proclaiming that all slaves in Texas were now free.
Dance like a phoenix rising from the shadow of the Ring of Fire under this Cancer Solar Eclipse on Summer Solstice. This auspicious occasion, in these unprecedented times, begs for furious dancing. Let’s dance for FREEDOM!

Drifting beyond time and space, Composer/Producer/Sound Journey Guide Sögu Music builds soundscapes to fill your mind with juicy goodness.
Sögu Music is the story of an exploration into the world of sound, evolving as the messages being sent from the cosmos are deciphered. The challenge is discovering the balance between the cosmic and the earthly, resulting in something unique and true to the intent of the exploration. Whether collaborating as a producer, creating beats and melodies for other artists or arranging and performing solo works, Sögu Music stretches beyond the physical limitations of one human, encompassing the cosmic vibrations permeating the Universe.
Sögu Music can be found on major streaming platforms including SoundCloud, Spotify and YouTube.
About the set: My intent for the set was to reflect on the current state of the world, our desire to take action, our desire to enact change, our desire to embody change. Drawing from a wide array of artists from around the world, the hope is we will begin to come into our unified consciousness as a planet as we celebrate our nearness to the source.
