SACRED SONGS FOR THE PLANET
An Ethnic Fusion & New Age collaboration between 11 artists from nine different countries. When our heart finds a direct channel with Planet Earth, we start to decipher what kind of vibration our planet broadcasts. We translated this into four songs produced by Senhora do Ó (Portugal) & Elly Kellner (The Netherlands).
A song that starts from Portugal and merges with the Tuareg band, TARWA N-TINIRI from Morocco, who ended up singing in Tamazight, a Berber language, and also with MARJO SMOLANDER from Finland, evoking sacred sounds with your Kantele.
WITH YOU WE PRAY
A pagan prayer that proposes to be recited and reverberated in unison, in canon, in spoken word, here with reference to the great Uruguayan thinker, Eduardo Galeano, and in all the musical formulas that human nature reaches, so that it may illuminate the paths of all beings that depart their countries with nothing, fighting for their own survival. Patterns of war practiced for millennia that must be ended now. Co-produced with JUAN BARALLOBRES from Argentina, KIYINGI GIOVANNI KIYINGI from Uganda and RAUSHAN ORAZBAEVA.
MOMENTO ĞAJAP SÄT
Inspired by the a solo by one of the most unique instruments in the world, the KYL KOBYZ, composed and played by one of the strongest references of our time, Raushan Orazbaeva. Her technique radiates the magical power that her ancestors in Kazakhstan put into the instrument when they held it. Also with the extraordinary LES TERIBA from Benin, promoting a sound tradition and modernity feel hand in hand, and JUAN PABLO VILLA , singer and contemporary composer with unconventional vocal techniques and vocal manifestations in Mexico.
From Quechua, Pacha (universe, world, time, place), and Mama (mother, Mother Earth), is the maximum deity of the indigenous peoples of the central Andes, directly related to the Earth, fertility, the mother and the feminine. This piece intends to remove all the filters that prevent us reaching the essence of each forest, of each plant, and make clear how we merge into one while breathing together. A shamanic inspiration for unconditional oneness ♥ With DIEGO ORIGLIA between Italy and France, FRANCIS MBE from Cameroon, RONA REFFEN from Israel, and SANDRO FRIEDRICH from Switzerland,
