Phoenix 07:34
I sing for the earth I sing for the angels fallen Wind is my breath and thunder is my song Have you tasted the sweetness of raindrops? Have you smelled the lilacs in bloom? Have you seen the sun in a lover's eyes, and conquered your own doom? This endless ache of humankind, the heart of suffering here inside... There is a warm cave and I have lit a fire come sit here by my side. Together we will sing until the silence falls, as the flames dance and devour The dragon's breath on your mortal skin, care to join me on the pyre? How close can we come to death, dancing on the edge? What keeps you sane, what keeps you from the flames, what keeps your heart contained? If you were to fall, finally to surrender, who would you be now? Who would you be now?...

Slow Burn 08:46
My love, my fire, come burn with me tonight Tear down the blackness with the blazing of your light And we will fly . . . Bird of prey encircle me until my skin becomes your sky Empty and Light Slow burn, on empty skin Lava flows, from your love within You are honey, melting in my sun... ...and I love the endless tenderness of your touch...

Kali's Army 10:09
Kali's army is coming around Kali's army is tearing the walls down... ...till I am naked and whole again Tear me open and scatter me to the wind Like stardust is shattered and gathered in your breast... This is no lonely death I am coming home...with every breath Kali Ma Kali Ma Kali Ma Kali Ma... Wine blood is flowing from my heart to hers My love is flowing to the heart of the earth... ...till I am empty and full again Tear me open and pour me out This love is a river that'll ravage your drought This is a holy rain I am coming home...to heal this pain... Kali Ma Kali Ma Kali Ma Kali Ma... I'm bound in this garden is watered with tears Turn back ye demons, I've conquered your fears! Yes I surrender and lay me down... Tear me open and offer me to the land Till me under and work me with your hands I am a warrior, in love again I am coming home...to the heart of man Kali Ma Kali Ma Kali Ma Kali Ma... Kali's army is coming around Kali's army is tearing the walls down... ...till I am naked and whole again Tear me open and scatter me to the wind Like stardust is shattered and gathered in your night sky devours and crushes me to your breast... This is a holy death

I gave the wind an eagle feather That she, she might set my spirit free And I gave the earth the sacred stone That she, she might carry me home All the way home... I stood at the edge of the trembling sea And I cast my prayers to the deep And I felt the pull of the moon on my bones Calling me, drawing me home All the way home... Ancient woman, maiden of midnight Sing us your mystery song Oh and gypsy dancer, of the fire and moonlight Won't you bring us along On your way home... And the sheltering eaves whisper to our souls Of sacred forests of old Where we'll find our way to the circle of stones And there, we will dance our way home All the way home...
6.
Surrender in stillness to the sweet souldance slumber Find a way to wander in the shadow realms of light Chosen are the lucky ones to dance the night on fire I was born of embers, scattered as ash And I flew, lifted on winds Oh did you see the sun! as it rose over mountains and set o'er sea When you're done will you come? Dance in the ethers with me...

about

Recorded at Boulder's impeccable Immersive Studios, for a live audience in one take, this album conveys the passion of Ariana's gypsy heart, along with stellar musicianship by several of her favorite collaborators: Scott 'Seva' Bears on oud, David Alderdice on drums and percussion, Beth Quist on vocals, hammered dulcimer, 12-string guitar and keyboards, and gorgeous guest vocals by Meagan Chandler.

The album was multi-tracked on the fly, and then gorgeously mixed and mastered by Jesse Manno and Tierro Lee over a 6 month period following.

We invite you to dive in and re-live this beautiful moment in time...
