New Releases Single Release Dancing with the Root Chakra
“The first chakra is situated below the sacrum bone in which resides the Kundalini, and its main aspect is the innocence. Innocence is the quality by which we experience pure, childlike joy, without the limitations of prejudice or conditionings.
This is the first release of the CD, "Dancing with the Chakras." Creating lyrical pieces for the chakras based on our djembe chakra rhythms was first envisioned over a year ago. Dave Moir, professional bass player and long time member of our drum circle, developed bass lines for each of the chakras in both the musical key and mode of each chakra (see chart below). Many thanks, Dave!
Jim added more percussion - a Dundun line to the djembe rhythms and doumbek solos, along with the güiro, shakers and other "fun stuff" for atmosphere. Pulling it all together, Jennifer and Jim created synthesizer soundscapes and melodies to evoke the essence of the power centers. Jim was the primary sound engineer, and Dave assisted with the mixing. All recording, mixing, and mastering occurred at the Santa Fe Harmony Center.
We feel that "Dancing with the Root Chakra" evokes the sense of primal innocence and joy that allows the kundalini to rise and awaken the other chakras to our true, divine nature.
"Dancing with the Chakras" is an ongoing labor of love - we hope you enjoy the music, and that it makes all your chakras dance!
