MANTRA (Hymn to the Mother Earth)
Additinal artists from Nandighosha Group ----- Bruno Steffen: Arrangement, Mixing, Piano, Uno Corda, Harmonium, Synth pads, Strings, Bells, Back. Vocals, Clapping. Vivek Bhurtun: Tabla, Narration, Back.Vocals Rätus Flisch: Double Bass ---- 'MANTRA' (Hymn to Mother Earth) is an offering from all of us to our Mother Earth, who is the foundation of all things, living and non-living. It talks about  human actions to be cultivated to protect the planet and to sustain life on it with peace and harmony. We have many environmental issues, but in the current scenario, when the entire world is still struggling to combat the deadly Covid 19 with many human lives already lost, what we all need to do is to adopt a holistic approach towards living life, a lifestyle that exists in synchronisation with nature. A productive, diverse natural world and a stable climate forms the foundation of a successful civilisation, and its future. We must work together to have a world that functions beyond borders, race, caste, colors, rich, poor, human pride and biases.  If we continue living in ignorance and not change our attitude, we would be subjected to nature's fury and no doubt our planet like earlier times would take its own method of removing all those who are posing a threat to its existence.  So let us celebrate our planet Earth and let us work towards building a protected, valued, and sustainable environment for the future. Together we can have peace and prosperity.

After the Rain
This Hebrew song, written and composed by Tamar&Netanel, talks about nature's cycle and its important connection to our soul.

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.

The Flower and the Raindrop
The song describes a dialogue between a flower and a drop of water on their journey to find each other. This micro perspective reflects the fragileness and uniqueness of each living organism on our planet - a thing we often tend to forget.

Air
This song was derived from something we all need. Love is the inner abundance, and like love air is the exterior abundance. It is present and available at all times in our waking and sleeping. While we breathe, let us also remember the inward air of love that reminds us of its presence...creating a circle of true life.

BASUNDHARA
“Faith, waiting in the heart of a seed, promises a miracle of life which cannot prove at once.” ― Kabir ------------------------ Nature inspires, nature surprises; it makes you wonder struck often with its beauty and power. There were horrific wildfires in the Amazon rain forest followed by Australia wildfires in 2019, wild life was at its worst. The pictures of burnt animals were barely possible to see and heart wrenching. But then, when rain came, the fire ceased and there were these pictures on internet of new leaves, new sprouts and flowers coming out of burnt bushes. These pictures were hinting the very fact that Nature is the mightiest and she and only she has the power of creating and nurturing life. ------------------------------------------- ''Our song 'BASUNDHARA/ VASUNDHARA’ is an emotional out-pour of many events in past years affecting life in general. It is an imagination to have a beautiful morning/day with all the elements of nature’s in place, blooming, shining and living life without any problem. It is like a painted canvas/scenery of rising sun, greenery, flowers, birds, butterflies, river, mountain and stars in the night'' -Bijayashree, Moshe, Andreas

SHIRA
‘’Nature is full of meaning, filled with indescribable music. The trees, the stars and the blue hills ache with a meaning which can never be uttered in words’’ - Rabindranath Tagore Here is how we would like to sum our expression/motivation behind 'Shira' In Silence and Joy I dance to the tune of yours O Mother Earth, I exist because you exist I do not know which language you speak, but I've sung many times in your embrace You have spoken to me through your silence All those traveled through me, Became a melody, a song I sing in silence and joy. ------------------------------------------------- Our composition ‘Shira’ is a melody/ a conversation with the mother nature in awe of her eternal beauty realizing her abundant love, solace and protection. This composition ‘Shira’ is purposefully made without any spoken words as some emotions exist beyond words. We also believe that this composition is made with love for all, no matter which language one speaks.

HoSha'na - הושענא
Hoshana Rabbah (Aramaic: הוֹשַׁעְנָא רַבָּא‎, lit. 'Great Hoshana/Supplication') is the seventh day of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, the 21st day of the month of Tishrei. This day is marked by a special synagogue service, the Hoshana Rabbah, in which seven circuits are made by the worshippers with their lulav and etrog, while the congregation recites Hoshanot. It is customary for the scrolls of the Torah to be removed from the ark during this procession. In a few communities a shofar is sounded after each circuit. The song is speaking about the power of the earth and land, there is a huge shout of a man who asks from god to bless the earth, the land, the fruits, the seeds and the nature. The lyrics to this song were written by one of my favorite artists names Eviatar Banai combined with a prayer for Sukkot holiday, I have decided to give it my interpretation and recored it in my home studio.

Judia
An original composition, this song describes both the beauty and the pain or carrying Judaism. Jews have been hunted and punished for their faith wherever they went to, and this song describes this commitment that passes from mother to daughter in a sensitive way. lyrics written by my mother :Shoshana Karbasi sung in Ladino-Sephardic. (dialect of Jewish Spanish). In loving memory of the once glorious Jewish sephardic community of Thessaloniki (Greece) that was sent to concentration camps during the holocaust never to return.

Saat A'rahman
it is a Yemenite wedding sung that was sung to the much too young bride before her marriage. it is a painful dialogue between the young bride and her father, then between her and her mother. In her sadness of leaving her safe parents home to an unknown destiny to go to her future husbands home, she asks her mother for protection, and her father to please not listen to her at this hour of mercy and not give her away to a stranger. 'oh father? how could you give your daughter away? at the very same time that you bless me for good night'. I tried to give that bride (of many in many counties) a clear voice. as they voice was very often muted and ignored. the arrangement is more western classical and that is to emphasise the idea and the heavy feeling.
