Praful & Spirited Tribe

about the latest band recording project

April 21 2017

For many years, I had the dream to record music in a big inspiring studio together with some of my favorite musicians. Even though I own an audio studio, I do not have the facilities to record many people playing simultaneously, so the majority of my albums are mostly made by an overdubbing process — whereby one element after the other is added until the song is complete. This process has become very common nowadays — since the digital revolution. Yet… I started to miss more and more the magic, inspiration and spontaneity that we experience when playing together, as in a concert scenario, or as it was in the ‘old’ days', of the last millennium, when there was no way of recording other than playing together as a band. In January 2017, we gathered for 4 days in Fattoria Studio near Osnabrueck, Germany: 6 musicians, a love support team, a cameraman and a sound engineer. The plan was to record both some new compositions I had especially written for this project as well as giving lots of room to improvise and create entire pieces out of the moment from a place of silence. The love support team of 4 goddesses was on hand to support us, feed us, hug us and be there physically inside the studio doing Yoga, Massage and Healing while we were playing. My hope was that in this field of love, magic would happen and divine inspiration would kiss our hearts. What happened during those 4 days went beyond all expectations — and belongs as one of my most beautiful and joyful experiences in music and friendship. We truly became a 'Spirited Tribe'. All that these sonic diamonds needed, was a little polishing, some additional vocals and a few cherries sprinkled on the cake. In fact, so much music was recorded in this short time, that it will be released over 3 CDs with 3 different themes. See here the video about the project
