Planet says
"Planet says" is a reggae song with an ironic approach. The planet tells us that we better worry about us than her because, as humans, we're probably the ones who will pay the worst price for our mistakes while she will keep on turning... She has been here so long-time before us and she will keep on bouncing on the different scenarios that will appear with the others planets and stars of the Universe. We are the little ones... It seems that our arrogance make us feel even able to destroy nature while actually we're probably just able to destroy ourselves.

Earth Vibrations
This is what may happen when our hearts find a direct channel with Planet Earth, we start to decipher what kind of vibration our Planet broadcasts. This song represents that channel. The attempt to forget that we are human, that we have borders that separate languages and cultures, so that we may be able to understand this mysterious telluric vibration that comes to us without pre-concept, without words, yet vibrating as a single Culture! ♥ "When Dyllann & Senhora do Ó first sent me their track I was immediately struck by the organic sounds of the Adufe and percussion with an entrancing rhythm. Senhora do O's earthy vocals used no words at all but still the song started to speak to me. I could hear a gritty bassline and dreamy electric guitar to go with it and really dived into the song to record those. It has become one of my favorite collaborations so far." Elly ♥

Rise Again
Very often, the human race marveled by its own intellect and strength tends to forget that we are one with the planet; and that we need diversity even for our own survival. Rise Again is a song of hope. it doesn't condemn but acknowledges that mankind has been wrong a lot of times in the past and that there is the opportunity to rise again as one with the planet.

Otiki Ndabo
Humanity is but a small part of nature and Earth is our mother. An african quote says: The Child who keeps his parents awake at night also doesn't sleep. When we take care of nature; we take care of ourselves because we are part of nature. When nature is hurt, we are hurt, so it's important for us to take care of nature and to treat it as we would treat ourselves. There are things happening before our eyes, things that happen to us without anyone being able to answer them. Our world is falling apart because of our nonsense. And we still haven't understood ... Languages used: Douala (Cameroon), Fon (Benin), English Translation: Otiki Ndabo means stuck at home (in Douala Languange, Cameroon) Credits Arrangement, Beat - Rona Geffen, Maebh Murphy Arrangement, Beat, Music and Vocal Production, Mix - Rona Geffen Composition, English/Douala Lyrics, Lead and backing Vocals - Dyllann Composition, Fon Language Lyrics, Backing Vocals - Les Teriba Rona Geffen (Israel / Germany) Maebh Murphy (Ireland / Germany) Dyllann (Cameroon) Les Teriba (Benin)

Our world is blue
The song “Our world is blue” is a declaration of love to our blue planet. It describes the beauty of our world in wonderful colorful pictures and is nevertheless critical. This song should remind people of the unique but fragile beauty of our world and: The worlds impermanence. We´ll lose our blue planet, our only home, if we will not immediately begin to stop the environmental pollution and the climate change. The song was recorded with 15 musicians from all over the world. “Our world is blue, we never get another”

Put your thinking caps on
If we do what we've always done, we'll get what we've always gotten. It is time to put our thinking caps on to think again. It is time to make new choices encompassing every aspect of the planet and beyond.

La Yo Yavsin Koy (Lets Not Fold Our Arms)
Climate Change is an international call for concern, but the truth is that each community experiences it differently. Tropical regions that depend on agriculture, are having inconsistent rain and dry seasons which lead to low yields and on the other side of the globe; ice is melting; and all these changes are frightening especially to local communities that don't have enough power to effect change at the top echelons of global power. La Yo Yavsin Koy; is an African folk styled original fusion which calls for leaders and for humanity at large to not fold our arms towards the issues brought about by global warming. It also paints a picture of the small but strong changes that occur in some of these communities.

Satpurush (The True Spirit)
In our quest to make the best of life mankind is lost in finding meaning and balance with the universe, and because of that we are hurting ourselves and our environment. Just like a leaf from a tree, we are drifting, not knowing what to do, where to go or what the future holds. Inspired by Hindi folk sourced from : Pati Raam Maravi ,Pradhan priest of Gond tribe in the Garakamatta Village , Dindori district , Madhya Pradesh , India
