(Praful & Sika)
available 1st July 2015
Inspired by the magical realm of Elementals (nature spirits), this album is an artistic collaboration of musical genres. Retro analogue synths merging with Flutes, chilled Jazz Saxophone and Electro-Tribal rhythms on Didjeridoo. Fresh expressions of music to move and inspire you.
The entire album is an Ode to the invisible nature spirits (Elementals) that dwell in every living creature and animate the 5 Elements Air, water, earth, Fire and Ether.
