John Langis/Scorpió, has been a friend of Wendy’s for 17 years now and has seen him through many hard times in his life that couldn’t be explained at the time. He wasn’t ready to explore this side of himself without breaking down into a deep dark pit of despair and not knowing how to channel these feelings. Now that John/Scorpió has dealt with these emotions through his writing, he wants to show people all over the world to not fear the darkest part of their soul, it can make you stronger and it can make you grow and learn. It can even create something new in your life, a new gift you never thought you had, it opens your mind to more possibilities you would never have seen otherwise, if you use your darkness and pain constructively, not destructively. Suffering is always something that we can learn from, if you do not have suffering, you cannot have compassion. Even Buddha said this and it has been true time and time again in our experience throughout life.
You might think that this could not be possible. How can we embrace the darkest part of our soul? How can we give into that darkness and use it to create? Some of the greatest artists of all time created music that when they were at their worst, they wrote the most profound, most intense lyrics that we have been relating to for many many years now. Most of us can relate to music in one way or another and music is in fact frequency that moves us. It creates hope in us, when you are currently going through it, especially after dark times, even especially after dark times.
When someone writes about their feelings through expressions of parables within their words, it doesn’t always bring those that are listening to those words into a spiral of despair. It can be that you feel as though someone else truly understands you, and that can give you comfort knowing that you are not alone, that someone else has been through that pain and suffering, and has gotten through it to be able to share it with all of you. Exploring your dark side is a gift, not a curse!
On that note, I will introduce you to John Langis/Scorpió, a Musician and a Dark Poet. He toured in Portugal in the summer of 2012 and has just finished recording his first album, “After The Twilight”, late last year.
This evening we will be interviewing Scorpió, who is going to explain his path and how he has grown through exploring the dark side of his soul. We will be doing a pre-recording of the show today so that we can do it more efficiently as John/Scorpió doesn’t have access to video.
The correct date of the Station nightclub fire was on 20 Feb 2003.
DID YOU KNOW???
You’ll find the songs you’ll hear tonight down at the bottom of our site, in the footer. You’ll see an application called “Streampad” – where you can listen to several of our musician friends play their songs, while you browse our site. On the right-hand side of the Streampad player, there is an option to open Streampad in a new window. Enjoy!
Here is some information from a recent Scorpió Press Release.
Enter the Realm of Scorpió
Scorpió …is the voice of a new generation. The lyrics and music of Scorpió delves into the darkness of the human experience. The image-rich poeticism of his lyrics explores and expresses all that dwells within the heart and soul.
A Scorpió concert is to travel into the dark night of the soul. It is a mystical experience that leaves the audience questioning their very own existence. But first, one has to surrender and traverse the abyss…into the endless night. It is a ceremony…a journey of life, death and life again.
Scorpió shares his fiery passion and his dark, mysterious persona to bring forth an experience that will disregard complacency and will fuse the lyrical, the musical and theatrical into a state that is both terrifying as well as liberating…to exorcise the soul.
Come and experience the essence of Scorpió …a new age dark poet.
