This EP was created as a dedication to water. We believe water is life and want to honor the water not only as a gift and birth right, but also as a medicine. We pray that all future generations can have clean water, that we could take care of all the waters of the world; the rivers, the oceans, the lakes, and that we could learn to take care of the water inside of us.
This EP was inspired by a show that I created honoring water for a musical residency in Mykonos, Greece where I was surrounded by water daily. We would sing and play water songs before an altar that honored the water and finish our show by offering the water from the altar back to the ocean.
Thank you for listening and supporting this mission of wellness and consciousness for our beautiful and sacred Mother Earth and her waters.

SOME NOTES ON THE MUSIC:
*PONTO DE IEMANJA*
This track is a remix mashup arrangement I created of two beautiful medicine songs sung in Santo Daime traditions for “Iemanja”, or “Yemenja”.
Iemanja is known as a powerful female water deity in the Yoruba religion as “Queen of the Ocean”.
The 2 songs featured in this remix are “Ponto de Iemanja” and “Das Aguas Nareia”
This track is a remix cover of a song originally composed by Danit Treubig and featured on her album “Aliento”, which can also be found on Bandcamp.
This song honors the 4 directions.
*FLOR DAS AGUAS*
This is a remix of a Brazilian water song from the Santo Daime tradition composed by Mestre Irineu. It honors water and its healing properties for the spirit.
