«Tatawari Firechant» is a celebration of the sacred fire which has kept us warm and alive in the cold and dark times.
It is the fire which brings us together in story, song and dance remembering our ancestors and future generations.
The fire cooks our food and brings nourishment to our heart and spirit. It is a fire offering healing and transformation.
Through reverence for the sacred elements of life we recognise that the fire from the heart of our solar system in form of father sun and the fire of awareness as pure consciousness are one. May the fire of destruction and warfare cease and may our dance around the fire bring peace.
Nils Olav’s remix intricately weaves organic sounds, paying homage to the spiritual essence of the original while embracing a dynamic approach for the conscious dance floor.
Featuring the enchanting voices of Sudha and Pao Pamaki alongside Kokopellis soothing vocals, evocative spoken word and prayer flutes, the song serves as a heartfelt prayer honouring the Great Mystery embodied in the form of the grandfather fire, child of the sun.
The lyrics express gratitude and reverence:
Grandfather Fire, child of the sun.
Thank you for being the heart of all hearts,
The fire of all fires…
