Samaicuna is a word in Quechua which has no literal translation, but implies the verb to breathe (or breathing together as in a state of rest). Recorded at the Island of the Sun on the winter solstice (summer solstice in the Southern Hemisphere) of 2012, it is the word that best encompasses the concept of this album.
The ebb and flow of the crystalline waters of Lake Titicaca, the birthplace of the Incan empire, is the foundation of the album and a rhythmic return to mythology, to our lost roots, and to the mystical potential of every human being.
The native flutes stem from different cultures, played for centuries to communicate and connect us to the Creator, to the Pachamama, to our brothers and sisters.
Magical in its simplicity, each song is a humble intent to align the sacred heartbeat of the earth with our own.
Samaicuna is an artifact of the ephemeral.
It is the marriage of wind and water.
It is a mirror.
Alone in the entry.
