about

About the music...

Dayala, Sharinam and Narayana are personalized interpretations of Vedic and Sanskrit chants from India.
The Mourner’s Kaddish is a reimagining of the Hebrew prayer. ‘Bela’ is influenced by traditional Eastern European folk music and named in honor of composer Béla Bartok.
Shivoham is inspired by Manish Vyas’s original song of the same name (on 'Sattva', White Swan Records).
Several of the tracks began with guitar-like harp arrangements with effects processing influenced greatly by bands such as Pink Floyd and Zeppelin.
Storm Pond Bird was originally written by Diana Trimble and Kalonica McQuesten (Elbows Akimbo). The song title and the harp parts remain the same in this version.

Huge thanks to Alex Stahl & Ethereal Donkey Productions for his unending dedication and talents in making this CD a reality.

Special thanks to Jeff Obee (bindi photo), Vince Caro and Nancy Kaspar

Track Name: Storm Pond Bird
Inside water, waterwheel turning
Stars circling the moon
Those who live in the shadow of nightfall
Those who ride upon the winds

I watch you circle around and around
A Thousand secrets in your flight
With eyes that see the enormity of things
Sound shadows falling from light

Storm pond bird
Flying high and far
Your strong wings carry you
Through the turning night of stars

You fly as the earth turns, resting on the sun
A prayer flies upon your wings
In the still of the night you are lifted into light
Disappearing like the air

You are the silence thought and the vine
Turning night into day
Your wings enfold all the branches of the tree
You are the lift and the falling away

Storm pond bird
Flying high and far
Your strong wings carry you
Through the turning night of stars
