Divine Mother ~ A Mothers Blessing, Part III of the Divine Feminine Sacred Goddess Series.
Creating these videos are a time consuming labor of love, often taking months to gather and sort through images, including only those which truly express the particular energy I want to have resonate from the piece in alignment with the Sacred. The music is Mothers Blessing from Liberation’s Door by Snatam Kaur. It is very beautiful and invokes a heart essence of love and more love.
Mirabai Ceiba creates beautiful music! They have recently released a new cd of poetic songs from the works of Khalil Gibran and Rumi, melodious and pure, titled Between The Shores of Our Soul. Below is one of the tracks from their new cd titled Ocean of My Soul. The video is enchanting. .
CD REVIEW: BETWEEN THE SHORES OF OUR SOULS
by Alan di Perna
Between the Shores of Our Souls is an album that enfolds you in a beautiful dream. Delicately wrought of shimmering sonic textures and soft, beguiling vocals, it is a dream woven from the eternal heart-play of divine love and romantic love. This intimate musical and lyrical space is a world well known to Mirabai Ceiba’s Markus Sieber and Angelika Baumbach, longtime lovers, partners in music, poetry, life and the shared path of the spirit.
Subtitled Songs of Love and Longing, the album draws from the divine poetry of Rumi and Khalil Gibran, two masters of a long literary tradition that takes the burning desire of earthly love as a metaphor for profound spiritual devotion, and vice versa. To this, Markus and Angelika add their own inspired lyrics in English and Spanish, not to mention their own distinctive musical sensibility.
Mirabai Ceiba brings something unique and entrancing to world devotional music—a sepia-toned European aesthetic. Between the Shores of Our Souls is bathed in a soft-hued aura of cinematic romance, tempered by a kind of Nick Drake/rainy afternoon introspection and the hazy impressionism of the Cocteau Twins, albeit rendered on acoustic instruments. For this is very much an acoustic album. A pristine recording by Chas Eller and Jamshied Sharifi puts you in a realm of the senses where you can palpably feel the gossamer touch of Angelika’s fingers on her harp and piano, the plangent depths of Markus’ guitar, the hushed rustle of the string quartet that embellishes many tracks. Through it all, Markus and Angelika alternate lead vocals like lovers playing a game of hearts. But the game grows most glorious when the duo’s voices twine in sweet octaves and harmonies.
Between the Shores of Our Souls is an album that is universal in its appeal, with enormous potential to transcend the “yoga music” market. For it speaks not of abstract spiritual concepts or exotic deities, but simply of love—something which resonates deeply in all our hearts. This is an album that whispers gently in your ear, a disc to spend some quiet time with either a loved one or alone with your own yearning heart. The dream it weaves will stay with you long after the last languid, hypnotic notes fade into the ether.
First new post in awhile, with summer arriving and spring waning, time has been been spent gardening, reveling in the sun and outdoor goodness, makes for less time indoors which results in the neglected blog.
