…is a collection of songs which have emerged from the timeless space of the sacred circle. They speak to an ever growing neo-tribal collective committed to healing via the transformation of consciousness.
Sound has been used for magical and religious purposes by shamans and medicine men and women since ancient times. The vocal techniques used on this CD are known as “throat singing” or “harmonic overtoning”. Its origins can be found in the mystical traditions of Tibet and Mongolia. These magical sounds have the power to strongly affect the auric field and transport one into profound altered states of awareness.
The music weaves vocals, percussion, harmonic overtone singing, electronic and ethnic sounds into a seamless tapestry of shape-shifting aural landscapes.
CD 1 is a rich blend of shamanic grooves, amazonian atmospherics and vocal transmissions intonded to uplift the spirit and soothe the soul. The songs, sounds and healing affirmations reflect a reverence for life, the beauty of Nature and the unity within.
CD 2 is ambient and designed to accompany you into deep trance. The tracks feature a hypnotic soundscape of exotic instruments, throat singing and the meditative flavours of Tibet, India and the Amazon. A journey into multi-dimensional realms.

This album chronicles Darpan’s early career in the eighties as a rock n roll singer with his band Die Laughing. Renowned for their theatrical performances and well crafted songs, the band forged a strong and devoted following in the Oz music scene of that time. Retro and worth a smile.
