Mother. Music. Magic. Mystic. Medicine. Matriz. Moon.
Alexandra Blakely is a singer-songwriter, storyteller, solutionary that walks the path of ancestral healing, the reclaiming of lost cultural practices and gathering information for becoming an elder. These are the journey's that are braided into her music. You may have discovered these lyrics via Amora, which is an umbrella of collaborative projects with the artist Alexandra Blakely. Amora is rooted in the Spanish verb Amor which means to LOVE. She lives between Duwamish Territory (Seattle, WA) and Tenochtitlán (Mexico City). She dedicates her life in service to healing. It is through her own adversities that she explores vulnerability and accesses the interconnectedness of all life. She searches to fill intergenerational holes with rooting. Her music, filmmaking, storytelling and beyond focuses on moving through stagnant manifestations, whether they be on individual or societal levels, by going into the darkness and building fires.
"The maximal of our ecstasy soars - as deep as we allow ourselves to walk through our own darkness,
just as tree branches will only extend as much as their roots ground within." -Alexandra Blakely
