ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Join Amber Field’s Caravan to Serendip, where entrancing vocals dance with cosmic crystal bowls, Indian strings, Turkish percussion, didgeridoo and electric bass.

"Serendip’s kirtan chants, Sufi melodies, and tribal beats will transport you on a soulful journey into haunting, hybrid soundscapes of bliss."--MInal Hajratwala, PEN USA award, Leaving India

Serendip is the ancient name for Sri Lanka. The album title is inspired by a Persian fairy tale The Three Princes of Serendip. As the princes travel through lands far from their own, they are sent on various quests—but what they discover is far more wondrous than what they sought. Serendip is such a journey.

In the Mourning After, wake up to the quiet longing of the Gayatri Mantra in She Becomes Sun, and then set out for the day with a Trickster Wink. Find your bliss at a dance party on the island of Serendip. Delight in the Rumble of an afternoon thunderstorm and follow the Summon to celebrate the sunset At the Ganga. Immerse yourself in a Mud Bath and then lose your cares in a meandering Desert Reverie. When night comes, fall asleep and awaken to your own divinity in Lucid Dream.

Sometimes silence is a sleeping siren soaking grace. As the veil between the worlds lifts, how long will we last? Like a horse galloping through the trees, like your hair in my hands, I bleed when you bleed. I can hear your whisper underneath my fingernails. I remember pieces of us like stardust encased. Blessed love not forgotten, it streams out of me a song. —Carmen Wilson, poem for Amber Field, copyright 2013

Love it. Great for Yoga
I've been obsessed with this album for the last six months. It's an optimal soundtrack for teaching yoga. Many of my students have come up to me after class asking about it. The songs span the full spectrum of emotion, tell a complex story, and are stunningly beautiful and powerful while also having a beat that's playful enough to encourage creative. Love it.
