The music and vocals vibrate with hope, inspiration and love to empower the listener with the knowledge the power is in our hands for the taking.
Miracle For thousands of generations, humanity has been waiting for some kind of miracle to rescue us from all the hardships we have experienced and have created for ourselves. But some say the miracle has been there inside of us all along. This song is a reminder of our own power and our responsibility to use it collectively and wisely.
From the dawn of humanity we’ve been nurtured and protected by nature and the beauty of the world that surrounds us. Lately we’ve been going through some growing pains and causing damage to the very force that gave us life. This is both a lullaby and a wakeup call. Heartfelt vocals convey both sides of the story, supported by emotional performances on the violin and harp, over a powerful backing track that takes us from innocence to experience.
Sometimes the pursuit of happiness is as simple as taking the first step, and sometimes you have to walk a lot further. What matters is that you keep going in the right direction! Our journey takes us up mountains, and we're not giving up. We keep on singing!
The Composition is in the form of an eight bar canon. There are four entry points for each individual instrument and four vocal parts. The four parts symbolize the four gates to a Tibetan mandala. Entering through the gates assists the process of removing obstacles. The auspicious number eight is represented in the eight bars and also the eight parts. The opening of the tune is a free interpretation of the eight bar melody enhanced by the haunting Australian native sounds of the didgeridoo. The didgeridoo re-appears at the end of the song.
When someone you love is at a distance, either physically or emotionally, you reach out to them, sometimes even in your dreams.
You don't really know how important love is until you feel a lack of it. It's as important as the food we eat, the water we drink and the air that we breathe. Children need it to grow, and we all need it to live. Whether it's love between parents and children, siblings, friends or lovers, it's completely vital for our survival. Love is like air.
In the animal world, for many species it's the norm to be part of a flock or a pack, and function together for the common good of the group. What would it be like if we humans could also let go of our egos and all be part of the same team? We think there would be a big party! This song is about realizing you're not alone and embracing the joy of the shared experience of life. Featuring the joyful voice of Syssi Managa.
In this song, water is a metaphor for the emotional connection between people which can bridge cultures and cross borders. It is also a basic universal human need that we share. Water is a critical natural resource, and in many countries, the lack of it affects predominantly women, who often have to carry it over extremely long distances with great effort. But collecting water also brings women closer together in their shared mission. Featuring the beautiful and powerful voice of Sheryl Gambo.
A fusion of Celtic, African and modern music.
