LINER NOTES:

Dear Listener, 

Please be advised that I have invited the energy and vibrations of many different cultures here in the spirit of play, exploration, and my own process as a white, bi-cultural woman of European descent. As I am blended, and so do I blend the cultures that I encounter into a tapestry of magic and meaning. I have done this with the utmost intention of respect and honor. These are powerful vibrations, and I approach them as ancient wise guides and medicines.

If a chant or a culture resonates with you, I encourage you to follow the trail and explore the ancient versions for yourself.

My wish and intention for you in listening to this music, is to find mantras, melodies and rhythms that bring you the frequency medicine you need in your life right now. These are the kind of musical "hooks" that you do want to get stuck in your head.

I also intend with deep consciousness for all cultures and traditions to be respected, in the name of a path of compassion and unity.

Some of the English words that I sing, are my poetry and prose that I adapt from the translations, except where noted as prayers from specific cultures. 

All chants and mantras within a song are selected for the thread of meaning specific to that song.

Sonic Blessings,

Elizabeth
