Fundraiser page: https://igg.me/at/aylamusic/x#/
With so much gratitude for your support, I welcome you to be a part of creating this New Album. Your contribution will make it possible to cover all the costs and complete the next steps to finish this project, giving the wings for these song spirits to fly into the world. Your support also makes it possible for me to keep writing songs, recording them and sharing them with you all! I offer this album as a medicine to support the healing of the deeper underlying sicknesses that humanity faces in this moment. Music has the magic, powerful and mysterious ability to go deep to the roots within us, to help us to heal, to feel, to call us back to our hearts... to Guide us home. These songs speak of the journey of remembering who we truly are, where we really come from and what we are here for. They honour that which is Sacred, the Elements, the Ancestors, the Earth, the Sky, the Wisdom of the invisible kingdom, the Spirit world, the whispers of the Silent Voices that are guiding and reminding us that we are all part of a holy creation, all related, all a breath of the Great Spirit of life. This album is my offering to the world in this pivotal moment of humanity, my prayer that we may reweave the Sacred web of Life and hand to our children a beautiful world that is thriving. It my offering of gratitude to the spirit world and to the beloved Earth that is our Mother.
For every single contribution towards this campaign a donation will be made to organisations providing COVID-19 relief for indigenous people around the world and those who have the least resources.
