about

I dived into this album just after writing the song "life is perfect."
It was one thing to sing about it and another to live it. So this was my opportunity to see how things manifest when holding the vision of life is perfect in mind.

My dear friend Kim and I literally booked the studio in Bali with no musicians or singers organised, we just trusted completely that Rob's studio and Ubud was the perfect place for this CD to be created and here is the outcome of the many miracles that took place before our eyes and ears.
One thing was for sure, in all my travels around the world, Ubud was the place where the chanting circles were the most potent, which had allot to do with Kim's house and what we created there together. This album is a reflection of those amazing nights.

When i first heard the sound track to Kim's film "Bali life is an offering" I had no doubt in Rob's abilities to create magic with sound. I also felt a brother connection, which is the number one ingredient for creating magic together I feel.

What we felt to do was create a balance between live and studio sound, so you still get the live vibe as it's foundation though it has the smoothness of the studio to make it easy on your ears and go strait to the heart.
All of the tracks were recorded live in the studio with a choir of angels, Patricio on bass and Dewa on drums...
All were first takes.... Perfect!
Then we added some sweetness from my favorite musicians, JanEric and Emanuel (who happened to show up) including the boys from OKA who really lifted the energy, then added a big choir and the sweet voice of Kirsty.
It all happened in a few weeks. Perfect again!

I cannot thank the Ubud family enough for dedicating their time and energy to this project.
Thank you Kim, thank you Rob...

I hope you love it.

SONG LYRICS
Tjukurrpa Kurunpa Walytja Ngura. X2

We walked away, long time ago we took away our Kanyini.
We turned away, long time ago we took away, our connection
to Kanyini.

Tjukurrpa – Our ancestors, our dreaming.

Kurunpa – Our spirit, our soul.

Walytja – Our kinship, our family.

Ngura – Our land, our home.

With love I offer this prayer
in the name of all that is sacred and holy.
With love I offer this prayer
in the name of all in the name of Kanyini.
Chorus:
Kanyini, Kanyini, Kanyini, return return. X4
