Istvan Sky spreads a message of peace, joy and happiness through the healing power of music. Istvan started learning music as a young boy, and he has kept doing so to this day. He studied singing and playing music from nature and first from his family and then from Indian and Tibetian Masters. In 1990 he became the disciple of the renowned sarod maestro Smt. Sharan Rani in New Delhi, from whom he learned complex spiritual musical art (table, vocals and sarod), and who got him acquainted with the Eastern way of life and philosophy.
How did you find your voice?
“My grandparents and my mother sang a lot. Whether my mother was happy or sad, she was singing. And I saw that the singing itself made her happy. From a world that we call the world of adults and the world expectations and control, she could enter a world where she could be happy and free to rise. I really loved this world as an innocent child. I started to sing with her while still in the womb.”
What happens when we sing?
“If you sing from the heart, you can connect to the beautiful cosmic world, where there is no past and no future. Only the blessed present exists there. We do not judge anything or anybody, we’re just existing in this beautiful flow, between heaven and earth. If you sing, you’re in wholeness, in the blessed palms of God, in the flowers’ field, smiling at the heart, and all difficulties evaporate. The soul is happy and the spirit expands. The constraints, which were built by the mind, crumble in an instant. You’re free again, like a bird. You are alive and creating again. You take part in the divine creation and in the magic that is honest and pure. You don’t want to control or change it, just let it lead and teach you.”
