Ayni With Tito La Rosa with special guest Rene Jenkins. Ayni is a Quechua word meaning reciprocity. Ayni is a spiritual law as well as a law of nature. It is at the heart of the principle that underlies the establishment of trust and mutual connection. Simply put this principle can be stated...that as so I give, I will be provided for. This is the sacred trust of being. It is key to health and healing. When we operate in the field of Ayni, we touch a frequency that allows for the possibility of deep connection and nourishment, as well as the possibility for synchronicity and miracles.

In 1992 when Martin Cradick & Su Hart first went to visit the Baka Forest People they were amazed to fine two great guitarists, Mbeh and Pelembir. Since then they have regularly returned to stay with the Baka and each time have taken another guitar. On each visit they found that more and more of them had learned to play guitar, and by 2000 they had organised themselves into a band.
A decade on, new technologies enabled Martin to make the first multi-track recordings of 'Baka Gbine' using a solar-powered laptop deep within their forest home. This album is a collection of their songs recorded live in the rainforest of Cameroon in 2004 and 2005. It may not be what people immediately think of as 'Pgymy' music, but it is what the Baka from Gbine are playing and want to share with you. Learn More$16.99

The 10,000 Steps is an atmospheric soundscape of exquisitely crafted ambiance, from singer Lisbeth Scott (The Chronicles of Narnia and Spielberg's Munich) and multi-instrumentalist Greg Ellis (Vas, Matrix series and 300).
What do you get when you cross an insanely talented multi-instrumentalist with a breathtaking vocalist, both of whom have one foot in this world and another in the next? Biomusique. Biomusique is the vehicle for percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Greg Ellis and siren/songwriter Lisbeth Scott.
Some will be familiar with Ellis' work as a founding member of the sacred music duo Vas. Unlike Vas, which is rooted in more Middle Eastern and East-Indian rhythms and atmospheres, Biomusique's first effort, The 10,000 Steps, is a poly-fused hybrid of many styles that range from textured electronic ambience to atmospheric riffs on Celtic sound-stylings. The results are breathtaking.
Lisbeth Scott's vocals resemble the non-local phrasings of Liz Fraser and Lisa Gerrard, toning, intoning, chanting and singing, blending and bending a fluid vocabulary of vocalese. While Ellis moves surprisingly well out of his percussive comfort zone to play a number of other instruments such as trumpet, guitar, dulcimer, piano and, of course, a battery of drums and percussion. Together, they make deliciously organic sounds that echo David Sylvain, Enya, Clannad and Loreena McKennit, but are by no means cloning any of them. Those artists just represent stylistic touchstones.
The musical journey on The 10,000 Steps goes far beyond the tools of language to draw comparison. Take the first step. Listen. No samples or loops of any kind were used on this recording. Learn More$16.99
