Welcome to this very Sacred Circle, TribeWorld is bringing you today one of a series of 'Ritual' pieces from an album that is still being constructed called 'Music for Ritual' This piece is called 'Sacred River' and is from the Water Energy sequence. The original tune was written by David Pendragon and Kim Sayers on acoustic guitar in the 1970's. It was often played around campfires with multiple musicians 'jamming' for hours on the repetitive yet never boring riff, I remember one night when there were well over 40 players of all kinds of things [including a 44 gallon empty petrol drum!!] Not long after this piece was written, sadly, Kim died from the effects of a snake bite. He was a member of the Hare Krisna temple and made a decision to not seek medical aid [he was many miles from the nearest town] As I understand it he went home, lay down and went into a deep meditation trusting that 'what will be will be'. He passed over to The Summerland a few hours later.
This rendition of the tune is dedicated to him
The amazing sound you hear at the beginning of the tune is all made using ONLY the human voice of our very good friend Shay. It was recorded by Ben Mansfield using multiple layers of 'throat' chanting and mixed by David to became the intro for Sacred River.
The Journey of the piece, takes each person on their own individual 'trip' so we are not going to 'colour' your visuals with our imagery, rather, you allow the music to take you where it will. We would be very interested in hearing from anyone about their own experience of this piece. I have often used it in Ritual and we offer it to you to use for any 'rightful' working that you wish. We have made it a free download and you may pass it on to whomever you wish. This Circle is now open.
