Flowers of the Forest "A Neverending Story"
A musical story that is very dear to our hearts, as it expresses our journey together once again. This song came in a powerful moment of healing for us both and through us both, bringing hope and joy with it. When we sang it for the first time it opened another dimension in our musical co-creation and it introduced a glimpse into the New Earth that is emerging as the tides are turning
Charlotte Mabon "All Is Love"
"It was the fourth song that I ever wrote and it came through to me after a very difficult passage whilst staying in the forests of Brazil. It came to guide me back to myself, my body and my home on this earth with new understanding and a peace deeper than I knew was possible. This song has been sung at funerals, has rocked babies to sleep and accompanied people in their last moments. I'm so happy that it has at last been recorded and can spread its wings.
Flowers of the Forest "Eventyret"
The meaning of the Norwegian word “Eventyret” is “fairytale”. The song takes us on an adventure throughout the world, through many landscapes, seasons and various states of being. The song correlates to the previous release, The Beginning ,where the seeker makes the decision to start the Journey. From there starts the adventure of the fairytale.
Chandra Lacombe "Mahamritjunjaya"
“This mantra is dedicated to ‘Lord Shiva’, the one with three eyes and who can see beyond duality, seeing what really lies beneath. He pervades and nourishes all creatures and helps to destroy diseases, even death. All things are bound to perish. Shiva helps to rescue the nectar and release attachment to death, which leads to eternal life, which is our true innermost nature.
Adrian Freedman, Ema & Esoh "Deep Space Blue" (Nils Olav Remix)
Taken from Adrian Freedman’s ‘Kindred Souls’ featuring musicians from five continents, Nils Olav’s twist on ‘Deep Space Blue’ boasts a chunky, intensifying bassline lying beneath the resonant sounds of the didgeridoo oscillating around the beat. Shakers and rattles accompany the harmony of the shakuhachi and ululating vocals on this cinematic voyage.
Charlotte Mabon "Guiding Spirits"
“Guiding spirits is a song of letting go and surrendering to the greater forces that are out of our control” explains Charlotte”. It explores the concept that we must lose ourselves in order to be found, experience hurt to know healing and ultimately meet death in order to fully understand life. If this song had an image it would be of a bird flying to the sun, dissolving into its golden rays and being reborn in full consciousness of its magnificence as part of the whole.”
Flowers of the Forest "The Beginning"
The song is held by the harmonic voices of Sigmund Vatvedt and Rutt Treima. The melodic use of the classical guitar gives a lyrical accompaniment, while clever use of the double bass grounds the song. Tin whistle and violins forms a colourful background with a playful dialog between them. Together they form a dreamy and harmonious sound picture that comforts the listener to begin the journey.
Ayla Schafer "Listen, Water Brings A Message"
The Message of Water was given to Azul Thomé on 2nd December 2016 by the River Dart, Devon, UK after she fell on her knees asking the river how to love when there is so much loss?:
" My dear child do not worry about me, Water. I recover quickly with the song of our birds, the love of trees, with movement, moments of rest and the prayers moving around our Earth. I regain balance with your heartfelt tears, your remembered songs added to the ones of so many now. Do not focus your energy on 'Saving me'. Something way more profound is taking place right now, listen and observe!
Flowers of the Forest "The Calling"
“The Calling”. The song’s genesis was born at the River of Jordao, in the Brazilian Amazon where Sigmund has spent long periods studying with the native people and was completed in Norway. The song merges various indigenous shamanic cultures of the north, south and west and is a call for the spirit to awaken from the deep slumber of modern life. To begin the journey of attaining freedom and the meeting point between polarities. To awaken the indwelling divinity that lies in the heart and soul of all Life.
George Lucena "Hooponopono"
The song is inspired by the beautiful Hawaiian prayer Hooponopono, a practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. The song is produced by George and Nixis own wizard producer Txai Fernando. So much gratitude for the medicine music that touches our heart.
Charlotte Mabon "Across the Veil"
Featuring intricate guitar, sweeping vocal harmonies and guest spot from shakuhachi player and label-mate Adrian Freedman, the gorgeous, bittersweet instrumentation is matched by powerful and personal lyrics about a darker issue:
“'Across the veil' is a song written to light the way of a dear brother, much loved in our community, who tragically took his life after using Xanax recreationally in 2018, a victim of suicidal ideation, one of the drugs known side effects” explains Charlotte.

Ayla Schafer "Grandmother (I Am the Earth)
"This song was born In the early hours of the morning after a ceremony and challenging journey had finished, I asked for help and I found my voice coming out of my being and into the space. I felt the knowing that I am the Earth and She is I. I felt how we are healing with her, breathing, feeling, singing with her. She helped me in that moment to open myself to welcome all of life, the challenges and beauty all equal in gifts. May this offering be part of our great remembering as humans that we are not seperate from our Mother Earth, we are one with her".
Giita Rani - Shiva / Divine Dancer
Giita explains “The song was created as a playful jam, Chandra and Surya, sun and moon dancing around each other. And as it grew on me, and the lyrics started to come forth it was in the spirit of anchoring royal spirit of consciousness. The wish in creating music is ever to inspire flow; in moments of rest, meditation, dance, yoga, healing and connecting.
Susie Ro "HOME - Live & Locked Down"
