Authentic in all aspects of her life, Serah truly brings the world to world music. A resident of the breathtaking mountains of California, she has also lived in France and Africa.
"I'm always loving to explore and incorporate the whole world music theme, simply because it's been my life," Serah reveals. "When I lived in Africa, I was working the drought area and at that point in my life, I felt like maybe doing music wasn't enough. I felt like I needed to do something hands-on. It was a lot harder than my idealism ever anticipated, but it always seems like something Higher than you gets you through it. I feel grateful that it happened - and that I was able to do it. I feel like it has never stopped blessing me. And one of the wonderful things about being there was that I got introduced to African music."
"She dedicated a year and a half of her physicality, spirituality and mentality to the cause before leaving for France where she worked with French musicians and eventually with others from the African continent. Because of these influences throughout Serah's ongoing personal journey, her music is as intoxicating as the wine it now toasts and enlightening to the deeper yearnings we all have.
Her social consciousness, as with her higher consciousness, is consistent with her music, words and deeds. As such, Serah is a steadfast supporter of Sting and Trudy Styler's Rainforest Foundation and attends its benefit events. Other causes she has supported include the 1999 Concert for the Hague Appeal for Peace, in The Netherlands, where she performed with her international band before a gathering of 8,000 like-minded participants.
Serah's charming adobe-style home, which has captured the imagination of the media, is festooned in frescoes that she and a dear friend, Meg Roberts, have joyously painted. As with the music Serah creates, the feeling is boundless and magical.
