Album Notes
"Partially Domesticated Amazon" is a concept album about the observations, musings and struggles of a woman who feels out of place both in her personal life and in her culture. Newly emigrated from the remote, idyllic setting of her Amazonian home, the partially domesticated Amazon finds adjusting to the modern world deeply challenging. She uses music as therapy and as a way to document and make sense of the chaos of life. She is both strong and sensitive, sometimes overwhelmed by the inequities she sees and experiences in the world. She wants to be loved and accepted but is determined to honor her unique point of view and not be marginalized, minimized or “Barbie-fied.” She rejects the notion of strict gender roles and encourages others to find their unique voice and hold their own in a world full of plastic, homogenized stereotypes.

"Partially Domesticated Amazon: Exposed!" is the 1st in a series of 3 records entitled "Aural Elixir Three Ways." This series explores three different approaches to making an album from the same studio sessions. This first version is a live trio, 3 real time performances with no overdubs or other types of extreme electronic manipulation. With this CD, we pay homage to our musical ancestors. The few who were blessed with the opportunity to record their music did not have the luxuries afforded us by modern technology. They all gathered in one room and recorded their songs into one microphone, no computers, no special effects, no Auto-Tune, only people making music together in the same space and time.
"Partially Domesticated Amazon:Exposed!" shows our humanity, our creativity, our strengths, our flaws, our individuality, our improvised synergistic convergences and captures the real moments involved in the mystical process of making music.
