Seize The Day
‘Seize The Day’, written during lockdown by actor and musician Greg Wise, is sung by Heather Ella Rose in the UK, with backing vocals by Marshall Muze in Nigeria, Bass by Neipesmit in Argentina, piano by Juan Barallobres, with drums, guitar, theremin, backing vocals and all production by Lucas Avellina in Argentina. This lovely song is about the importance of appreciating and loving life, even when the day or the time you’re in is hard. It’s a folk type song that starts out small, in the circle of light that is two people, but widens out to take in the enormous change we are now facing - a whole new ordering of things - social injustice, the financial system, and the state of our planet. It is a hopeful song ultimately, as it acknowledges that the ‘world we wove together is unravelling now’, but says ‘take the broken lands, take the broken lives, and heal them now’.

Rise Up
'Rise up' is about walking the line between hope and despair for our planet. It is a story-song written about a person who has everything, but who struggles to enjoy their happiness knowing how much suffering there is in the world. Ultimately the song represents the journey that anyone of conscience must make on a planet in turmoil, asking ‘how can I feel happy, when others are not free’. But the song still holds hope, as ‘love finds a way through the dark nights’, finally saying ‘you must be the change you seek, if you wish to feel peace, you must cease the war in you’. It is called ‘Rise up’ because the song holds a plea to ‘rise up’ to the challenges we all face as spiritual and moral beings in a world in crisis. As Sakhile sings in Swazi, ‘the world belongs to all of us equally'! The song was first written and sung by Heather Ella Rose, then produced by Sakhile Mavimbela who wrote and sang additional lyrics and melodies, with Juan Barallobres contributing piano to the piece.

World Made of Sand
'World Made of Sand' is an unusual hybrid with Hulgo from Mongolia, Juan from Argentina, and Heather from Scotland, working on a latin song composed by Hulgo, then worked on by the others in the collaboration. It's an uplifting, upbeat song about what feels very much like transition times on our turbulent planet. As the lyrics say 'I see the dark clouds on the horizon, do you see them too, do you see the people running to the light, to the hope, the dreams'...It speaks of 'a world made of sand' and the rising and falling of empires but it is still a hopeful, joyful song, full of kind of giddy awareness of a crazy planet, where 'something funny is happening these days'..

The Things That Matter
´The things that matter’ has at its heart the quote by Martin Luther King; ‘the world begins to end the day we are silent about the things that matter’ . As the song then goes on to say, ‘our hearts can only mend, the day that we speak up about the things that matter’. It is ‘a call to arms’ for social justice and transformation on our planet, and a sorrowful lament for all the victims of injustice. In another international creative collaboration, with musicians from three continents, the song track was first created by Heather, with the chorus in place, but space in the verses for Marshall to write powerful words and melodies, and Juan to arrange, play on, and produce the overall track

NEW CREATION
A new creation’ is a song full of hope and love for the earth. It carries a profound faith in the possibility of transformation. Though the world is going through some tough times at the moment, we have a conviction that ‘out of the old comes the new’. Beyond our sorrow for the mess we’ve made of our beautiful planet, there is still time to transform to a new earth, ‘ a new creation’.

Bumpy Ride
This song is a response to the feeling of turmoil and tumultuousness in the world, now more than ever. It is reflecting something so many people on earth are feeling right now; that we are on a rollercoaster of emotions, thoughts, and new and collapsing realities. It comes from the feeling that we must hold on tight and as the lyrics say; ‘Stand together so we don’t fall down’. It’s a bouncy song, like a wild ride, but it has a strong positive message of resilience and recovery. It’s an ode to survival, and to the human spirit of courage to overcome all things if we only work together.

Beautiful Earth
This is a love song for life on earth, with a hugely positive message and a profound meaning at its’ heart. As the lyrics say; ‘We’re bound together like a thousand prayers’. This upbeat song reminds us that love is the one universal truth, and that though we can get lost, we will find ‘ways to survive, new ways to thrive’.    The song was written when thinking deeply about how we cannot change systems with the approaches that produced them, and about how this time we are in is particularly challenging. The song proposes that if we all collectively really feel our love for every element of life on earth, from the beauty of nature, to our own sorrows and joys, and for our extraordinary diversity of people and life, it will ‘tune us up’ to more holistic actions and connections.  We included a powerful sample from a bbc interview with John Lennon in 1980 Where he says “we know that the power is in the people, we just need to awaken this power” . His words are still so resonant, with all the global protests and demonstrations about everything from anti racism to environmentalism. These protests are a way that love for the earth and all it’s people can be expressed.

Pangea
“Pangea” is a song depicting a sense of wholeness and multiplicity. Referring to the hypothetical continent of the past, the song is a nostalgic remembrance of a time when the planet was quite literally a single connected landmass, before separation. Pangaea is a combination of earthly nostalgic strings strung in a harmony of a natural gathering of sounds. Between old and new sounds, rhythms and melodies, and distant collaborations, Pangaea is a piece inspired by a sense of planetary oneness. A oneness of humanity and of earth, and the span of time that encapsulates their common narrative.

Eternity
This song is about love and death, and hope and fear. It’s about that space in between this life and the next. It’s a deep journey of a song that represents the universal human experience of living with certain death, and uncertain life, but with love as the force that gives us all coherence. The meaning in the song is heightened even more at this time with the global lockdown happening, and it aims to be both a balm and a challenge to the spirit. As the lyrics say ‘Can you hear, can you feel, the coming of eternity, we must face it, face it, with love or fear’ .

Nature Procession
This song attempts to contrast an aspect of our life on earth, bound by the base and the material with our eternal and greater life "in the forests" of our spiritual identity. It serves as a reminder of who we really are and the necessity of seeking this greater truth that resides within us all expressing it and exhorting others to do the same. The song begins by describing how in this world we are ultimately part of a herd, being pushed to and from in a world of deceit and concludes with a call to action of "Give me the flute, and sing," in which the sound of the ancient reed flute symbolizes the primal vibration of all creation and true freedom is found among the wilds of the self, and the company of spiritual kin who know that “Immortality lies in a song” and not to concern themselves with the mundane. The song was adapted from Khalil Gibran’s poetry collection "Al Mawakib - Processions". The voice is part of a band that accompanies these contrasting movements almost as in a play. With a mix between sounds and languages of very distant cultures and instruments from different parts of the world, this song offers us a journey to our interior, our ancestors, our future and our relationship with the world we inhabit.

Hands to Heal
A few years ago, musician Juan Barallobres was visiting Isla Maciel, a very poor neighbourhood in Buenos Aires. As he walked around, he saw a group of women working. They were taking heavy sand from the river to clean and sell to local builders. Juan recorded the unique sounds they were making with their hands as they worked. This affected him greatly and gave him the inspiration for the song. HANDS TO HEAL talks about women’s work, their struggle, and their energy all around the world. It’s a song about the way women everywhere tirelessly work to transform the hard things in their lives, to make them better. It's about mothers, and sisters, and grandmothers, it's about artists, farmers, and industrial workers. The song is for all those who work humbly with their hands and hearts to make a better world. But above all, the song is about the hope that through their energy, through their hands, we can feel the possibility of a new humankind based on justice, love and nature.
