STORIES TO GO WITH THE MUSIC

1. Dance of Love
A delightful, charming and playful Anglo French melody that lures us into a feeling of romance as the sound of the French accordion plays in the background along with the french-speaking language of the singer, all of which feed our longing to find amour on the streets of Paris.
The pervasive, seductive strum of the Steel string guitar is beautifully contrasted by the sound of the sharp staccato which reminds us of the clicking of heels of the Flamenco dancer which seduce, entice, energize and compel us to breathe & Dance.
This song pays tribute to those souls long passed who have walked on this planet before us and who have left us their wisdom of the 4 directions. And to the angels whose invisible presence among us provide guidance and grace in our lives.
You can almost see roving gypsies dancing ’round a fire with their long skirts and pantaloons swaying in the breeze as the minstrels play, beckoning us to join. The lull of the guitar wake us to our own gypsy spirit within, inviting us to play, dance and sing along, while the short, snappy sound of the ‘Gitanos’ reminds us that the trickster is afoot – be attentive for things can change in an instant.
This song reminds us of the wisdom of breath work and asanas embedded in Indian culture. The melodic strum of the Indian sitar along with the hypnotic beat of the drum puts us in a trance that stirs our sensual nature which it has done for centuries in Indian culture.
6. We Belong
This song is told from the eyes and ears of an immigrant who has traveled the world and after years of seeking, pays gratitude to this new culture which has given him a place to belong, a place to call to home.
7. Pole Pole
The vocals in this song speak with conviction that tells us to go slowly and take our time. The literal meaning in Swahili of Pole Pole is “Slowly Slowly” The Elders are worried that the younger generation is losing touch with nature and it’s natural awakening.
8. Blessings Song
The instrument and accompanying melodic vocals partner to weave a story that comes straight from the heart – to pay tribute to the blessings of unconditional love while living a life our dreams are made of.
