"Bees and Butterflies"

Bees and Butterflies is a joyous call to reconnection with nature and its vegetal reign. It is written in “bulu” language, which is a language and tribe from South Cameroon. Danielle: Bees and Butterflies is the story of a flower that sings her gratitude and love to life. The flower is thankful for the bees and butterflies that come to flirt with her, for the sun and the stars that reflect their beauty on her. Sasha: With this song I had a bliss. The picture of a sunny day outside in the fields of grass and all the flies, bees and butterflies.

Ngweha

It is an a cappella song of a total improvisation in the studio. Realized in a process of free creation this song is an ode to the recognition of the need of love that resides in each one of us, this is a célébration of our natural ability to share that universal love with joy and abundance. Sasha: “The hypnotizing, ‘shamanic’ nature of Danielle’s song and her powerful voice inspired me for looking for special colors and unusual rhythmical patterns, in order to create a ‘magic’ supportive sonic environment.
