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.

BHOOMI
Additional musicians ( from Nandighosha Group): Bruno Steffen: arrangement, piano, synth, harmonium, bass, bells, mixing Vivek Bhurtun:Tabla ------------------------------ The song 'Bhoomi' (The mother Earth) is the cry of the mother earth describing it's pain and agony caused by the insensitive usage of it's resources by human beings causing severe damage to it's core and the planet as a whole. The suffering of the mother Earth is beyond imagination. It is a fact that our mother Earth is amidst of many serious problems like pollution, deforestation, soil erosion,climate change, biodiversity loss etc because of the modern life style of human beings and due to there lack of consciousness, sensitivity, care and respect towards it. Since our survival is entirely dependent on the survival of the mother Earth and without her our existence is impossible, we must need to take care and protect our mother Earth to save the human civilization and the planet.
