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, before going into primordial space and complete silence. The next section gradually builds up to the four parts before it branches out into eight simultaneous parts of instruments and voices combined. Other instruments include the Indian bansuri, European cello and piano, and American vibraphone. The main male vocals are by a Kazakhstan vocalist and the soprano by a German vocalist. The combination of instruments, players and vocals span the world and come together in a united song. The nature of a canon is equanimity as the same musical line repeats throughout unchanged. The simultaneous occurrence of the same line in a staggered manner creates a new dimension which is bigger than each individual statement. At the same time the line never looses its integrity and authenticity. Quite the contrary - without its balanced uniqueness it would never be able to serve as the basis of the bigger picture.MORE LESS
When someone you love is at a distance, either physically or emotionally, you reach out to them, sometimes even in your dreams.MORE LESS
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.MORE LESS
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.MORE LESS
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.MORE LESS
