MahaVia

"Let the beauty we love be what we do." RUMI

MahaVia is a collaboration between Julianna “La Patita” Thomas and Derren Davidavich Crosby.

Nature is our muse and music is what we love.  Inspired by the beauty and mystery that exists all around us and possessed by wanderlust, we have lived as full time nomadic artists, but now find our home in magical Bisbee, Arizona.

MAHAVIA translates to magic life, mystic path, sacred way… Julianna and Derren hope to share their inspiration and wonder with the incredible beauty of the natural world, as well as the people who inhabit it.

Julianna 'LaPatita' Thomas

Never quite satisfied with a single artistic pursuit Julianna has dedicated herself to many artistic mediums; Flamenco dancer, fiber artist and costume designer, and singer - her passions know no bounds….. Seduced by flamenco at an early age, she has lived in New York City and Andalucian Spain to study with master teachers Juan del Gastor, Concha Vargas, Carmela Greco, Maricarmen Guerrero, Juan Polvillo, Jose Galvan, Paqui del Rio and her mentor, Andrea Del Conte.  As well as an accomplished flamenco dancing career her love of singing has made MahaVia an act not to be missed. Her expressive voice transports one to places in the heart that few dare to go. Dedicated to beauty and movement, she travels the world performing and making beautiful pieces of art in hopes of inspiring others to do what they love.
