Many Hands Light Work is Stormi Oshun and Shaun Phoenix. Stormi has been drumming since young adulthood, and has created and led two wildly successful women's bucket drum marching bands (Spokane, Washington and Bozeman, Montana).
With her joyful and inclusive spirit, Stormi has been invited back repeatedly to SummerSing Women's Music Empowerment Camp and a variety of other venues to offer bucket drumming and other rhythm workshops. Shaun Phoenix, Stormi's partner in life, love and Many Hands Light Work, has been a musician and songwriter since childhood, and is extremely effective at creating a coherent sense of connection and community where all feel welcome, heard and valued.
Shaun is a shamanic healing practitioner, mentor and ceremonialist. Both women are members of Yamama!, an all-woman World music and dance ensemble based in Bozeman. Shaun and Stormi are repeat presenters at the Cody Dieruf Foundation Mother’s Retreat for Cystic Fibrosis, at the annual Celebrating Women gathering in Boulder Hot Springs, MT, and have completed Christine Stevens’ Music Medicine training. Both are certified drum circle facilitators with Arthur Hull’s Village Music Circles.
