Praful's current band was born in a studio recording session in 2017, during which 3 albums were recorded. The music spans from sacred world music to meditative pieces, sometimes also expressing shamanic energies. Songs in various languages (English, Sanskrit, Portuguese) alternate with (long) improvised pieces, which can build up from very soft to a dancing groove, similar to Sufi whirling music. Praful gathered this group of favorite, sensitive musicians to co-create music from a shared magical experience of love and friendship — spontaneous, deep and uplifting!
«These wonderful talented musicians are all completely plugged in to the Cosmos, all aligned with the stars. As if the Universe was revealing itself through their music. I cannot put other words than these to it. Spectacular. If you can, come check it out…!” by Irene Sportel, NL
