‘Machi’ Music Video & Medicine Song Lyrics by Peia Luzzi

I had the great honor of experiencing the angelic voice of Peia Luzzi, guiding us like a beacon of divine light across multiple dimensions, during a week-long ayahuasca retreat in Costa Rica. This song ‘Machi’ was my favorite in her repertoire, and so I’ve been listening to it over and over in an OCD kind of way! It sends chills all over my body each time.

This music video is as healing and soothing to watch as this song is to listen to. Enjoy!

This song speaks of healing power and medicine of Woman, the Moon and the Earth Herself. “Machi” is a word that comes from the Mapuche people of Chile and Argentina. A Machi is a medicine woman and sometimes also refers to a medicine man. May the images here remind us all what a miracle this life is. May we see that though tender and vulnerable our Earth is wise and resilient beyond all measure. “Where there is Love there is Life ” and here there is a lot of Love. Blessed Be.

Four Great Winds – a journey through traditional and devotional song – glimmers with hope, burns with passion and sings of remembrance and reverence for the old ways of life. Peia’s crystalline voice and heart -full delivery inspires and transports listeners to a magical world of true depth and beauty.

Here is a very different version of Machi, from Soundcloud.

About Peia Luzzi

Peia Luzzi is an American born song collector, writer and multi-instrumentalist based in the mountains of Southern Oregon. Like water from a deep well, she draws inspiration from her ancestral roots of Celtic and Old World European folk music. With the voice of a lark, Peia dances nimbly from Child Ballads and 17th C. Gaelic laments, to Waulking Songs, and Bulgarian mountain calls. She has traveled extensively over the past 10 years to uncover melodies wrinkled and wise with time, laboring to honor their language and stories, while bringing a piece of herself to each song she carries.

A powerful voice in the rising global community of people who are committed to restoring a balanced relationship with the Earth, Peia expresses her holistic vision and passion through her music, educational workshops and advocacy for social and environmental rights groups.
Peia’s revolving collaborative ensemble weaves in rich vocal harmonies, driving percussion, and intricate guitar work, together with her own instrumentation on charangon and harmonium to create lush, organic soundscapes. Her mesmerizing performances offer authentic re-imaginings of traditional musical treasures, along with a stunning repertoire of her own original songs.

Where to Find Peia Luzzi
