Deeply down, if you have the courage to explore the most hidden lands of the universal energy, you arrive at some point where you just know that Souls are so ancient that you’re just prepared to everything the Uncreated Force is going to bring you. Sometimes you expect something, and something else arrives. That’s the way in which the One around and over here is bringing inner harmony to the Cosmo order, continuously giving us lessons through an incredibly high sense of humor. What we all need is Peace, and there’s no Peace until there are boundaries inside us. Reaching redemption and salvation. “Music is the key”, and when the gates open showing the reign of what is over the game of contrasts, you can be scared or joyful. But at the same time you’ll be experimenting the rules of freedom of the unpredictable Light. We just try to do our best as walking messengers of what is on the other side of the Gates, as many others has done during the immesaurable story of the Circle of Souls. Music is the word of us, creatures of the air.
Born 1984 in Italy, Virginia Genta is self-taught and plays saxophone (tenor, soprano, baritone, alto), flutes, clarinet, plus some percussion and keyboards. Since 2003 she’s been working with drummer and percussionist David Vanzan in several projects such as Jooklo Duo, Neokarma Jooklo Trio (or Sextet, Octet, Experience), Golden Jooklo Age, and the Jooklo Finnish Quartet. She started playing music from improvisation while quite young, and has always been moving in the music cosmos with a deep, natural and spontaneous approach to creation, constantly working to find the highest way of expression connected to the oneness of universe. Besides this, the devotion of Virginia finds freedom also through drawings and illustrations. A restless activity during the past few years (about 400 concerts and a countless amount of recording sessions, some of those released on labels like Qbico, Conspiracy, and her own Troglosound), brought her to collaborations with musicians like Chris Corsano, Paul Flaherty, Bill Nace, Sonny Simmons, Daniel Carter, Sabir Mateen, John Blum, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Takehisa Kosugi (Taj Mahal Travellers), Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Sonic Youth, Hartmut Geerken, Famodou Don Moye, Makoto Kawabata, Andrew Barker, Muruga Booker, Raymond Strid, Giorgio Pacorig, among others.
