The story of "The Holy Broken Heart"


Sari Brown is a poet, preacher, and priestess of song who curates dreams and cultivates beauty in the fertile gaps between cultures. Drawing on her life as an anthropologist and activist in South America and as a musician and pastor in Michigan, she is equal parts child of Motown music, mystical chants and Andean folkloric dance. Using textured soundscapes and vulnerable storytelling, her songs create holding spaces for healing, self-awareness and practices of abundant life. 

Sari has released two albums with Earthwork Music, For What is the Journey (2004) and The Color Suite (2009). She currently serves as a spiritual leader, immigrant rights advocate, and impromptu-dance-party-promoter in the Lansing, Michigan area.

After a decade-long hiatus from recording, Sari is working on a new album, "The Holy Broken Heart," an exploration of our healing journeys and how to embrace their mysteries, paradoxes and incompleteness. It is due out in May of 2021. You may pre-order copies of the album and inquire about booking a Holy Broken Heart experience on the "Contact & Interact" page. 

Sari shares songs, reflections, and kitchen dance assigments for our collective present moment from her IG-TV channel and Facebook page @SariBrownMusic.
