Mundekulladanser - Anne & Peter Elmberg

The CD ”A feeling of joy” (Mundekulla Peace Dances)  consists of wonderful tunes and beautiful lyrics with universal messages inspired by the meeting with the Dalai Lama, the Native Americans
and other cultures. The lyrics are written by Anne and Peter Elmberg and have been much appreciated by people of all ages throughout the years. To every song there is also a certain circle/peace dance.
The songs and dances have been performed at climate manifestations, weddings, ceremonies, and dance clubs. They are the foundation on which the yearly Music Festival at Mundekulla is based.
Lyrics and chords with a description of the dances are in the
lyrics booklet and there is also a video presentation of Mundekulla
on the CD. All songs have been arranged for choirs.

Meeting Dalai Lama
In 2002 Anne and Peter visited Tibetan settlements in India supported by a grant from the charity organization IM. They also met with the Dalai Lama who encouraged them by saying: ”Music is a very good way of promoting Peace”. The song ”Our hands are made for loving” is inspired by quotation from the Dalai Lama and ”The Gift” was written after a conversation with a Tibetan friend. “One People” was written while reading Neale Donald Walsh’s book “A conversation with God” and the most popular song of them all called “A feeling of joy” was a song that Anne woke up with one morning. Mundekulla Retreatcenter is yearly visited by the Native American, Manitonquat (Medicine Story) who has written the book ”Return to Creation” which also is the title of one of the songs on the CD.
