    This signature mood album is a restful alternative to our fast paced age. Soulful songs weave Sanskrit chants into catchy English refrains. This cinematic collision of sound was created in collaboration with seasoned musicians and uses a colorful palette of world instruments. Album draws inspiration in styles such as space-rock, electronic, world-beat and hip-hop.

    Featuring eight impressive tracks “Wild Horses” has an insistent pulse. Soothing electronic beats and mantras from the Upanishads begin the album with the “ Morning Rising.” As the album unfolds we journey into “Wild Horses” – a track that takes you on an adventure ride. “ Dooms Day Parade” confronts the establishment with challenging English lyrics. As the “day continues” – we rest in a soothing lake of Hari Muraru, with celestial flutes and evocative dilruba.

    Leaving you with a yearning to listen again and again, this album takes you on a transformational journey from outside – in. This is a personal album, reflecting on the life as a ever-expanding miracle and recognizing patterns and forces at work above and beneath our normal focus.

about

This song is about the covering of the soul - a coffer in the form of a material body of flesh and bones that each one of us encased.

We are boxed into a casing made out of our material desires and sometimes feel restricted in expression and action, just like a fragile interment feels tight being put in a coffer for some transportation...

lyrics

I 've been keeping myself away within the soul coffer,
I sold myself, my soul for a supposed gold offer
within the body "I" shine !

And now you asking me if I want to take your offer?
And now you asking me if I am tired to suffer?
And now you asking me if I want to take an offer?
from the soul proper....

The ice cold nature of the flesh in the land of death
Takes away life that the Lord gave me through breath
The soul brightly shines, and I could be revealing
Instead of concealing, lamenting and deceiving
Regret of past wrongdoings, could I ever forget
Eventually this dream, will fade away this project
Dark times, tribulations, and twisted realizations
Atomic radiation, t.v., and zombie creations

And now you asking me if I want to take your offer?
And now you asking me if I am tired to suffer?
And now you asking me if I want to take an offer?
from the Soul Coffer,
from the Soul Coffer,
so proper.....

I'm the copper top, that's giving life to this robot
Everlasting regardless, of what I have or not
I've been changing my clothing, lifetime after time
And overloading thoughts, can pollute one's mind

Within the body I shine,
I can reveal it in time,
watch me cleanse my heart +mind

The Mantra tames one's mentality, cleanse one's anatomy
I belong to spiritual harmony, redirect my reality
To be the real Me, caught in this savage body
Ignoring my position, as a servant to Infinity

It's a tragedy, and simultaneously a comedy
A perverse reality, adjust your vision to what oughtta be

The soul coffer, is coughing up garbage with proper
Tales to captivate your essential eternity for a whopper
Of a lie, a fairy tale that is eventually doomed to die
Happily ever after, is beyond this realm in the spiritual sky
To redirect my energy is a must for me to try


And now you asking me if I want to take your offer?
And now you asking me if I am tired to suffer?
And now you asking me if I want to take an offer?
from the Soul Coffer,
from the Soul Coffer,
within the body I shine!
