The Center for Spiritual Living, Davis, will present Lisa Ferraro and Erika Luckett on Sunday, performing several songs during its regular Sunday service beginning at noon.

Meditation precedes the service, from 11:30 to 11:45 a.m., at 1715 Anderson Road at the site of the Congregation Bet Haverim synagogue.

Born in Mexico and raised in Venezuela and Brazil, Luckett soaked in her surroundings: the sambas and rancheras swaying through the streets, the songs of frogs in the trees. Each element found translation into her guitar and voice. Her innovative guitar playing emerged from the desire to create an orchestra of sound from only six strings.

As a child, Ferraro heard vibrations emanating from flowers and trees, symphonies ringing from the garden. She sang what she heard and developed a dynamic range that allowed her to interpret the music of the world, a news release said.

“This soulful awareness comes through her voice whether inspiring congregations, leading sizzling dance bands or melting audiences with stirring interpretations of jazz standards,” the release said. “Her voice and presence command attention and exude the sublime.”

The pair met in 2006 while performing at a festival in the American heartland. Hearing the remarkable quality of their vocal blend, they began to explore a musical collaboration. Within months, they teamed up with Kabir Helminski, a Sufi scholar and translator, to create collection of songs inspired by the 13th century mystic poet, Rumi.

A short time later they found themselves in Istanbul, collaborating and recording with Turkish musicians. Their music ignited a surge of invitations, which led to performances in Melbourne, Australia, and across the United States and Canada. Their most recent release, “AWE,” features new compositions as well as fresh renditions of contemporary classics.
