Album Notes
'Rising' offers rebalancing music medicine for the soul. With mindful intention, SacredFire (previously Chants & Drums) create harmonious, heartfelt waves of gratitude and flow. MJ's haunting voice and improvised, spoken tongue lyrics are often said to resonate with Dead can Dance's Lisa Gerrard's vibration.

"I love 'SacredFire'. They are gifted musicians who have created a powerful, healing, & transformational experience for us to connect to our deepest source." - Davidji, dean of Chopra Center University, Carlsbad, CA.

With this powerful debut EP, Worldbeat Sound Healers MJ Vermette and Dean Richards invite you to open your heart and feel peace and harmony at a cellular level. Each song has a meaningful and profound purpose, and aims to help the listener create a sense of wholeness and well-being:

Track 1: Donte Kür is a loving tribute to the Divine
Track 2: Rhâ! Tcheba is an empowering song, honouring the Masculine within the Feminine
Track 3: Croeso is an improvisation meant to express a warm welcome into our hearts
Track 4: Shaman Rising is a tribute to the Apprentice dancing his/her way on the path to Awareness
Track 5: Abundancia is a prayer of gratitude for the great abundance of life (inspired by Doreen Virtue, and her teachings around angels and archangels)
Track 6: You and I are Stardust celebrates Unity, and reminds us that we all come from the stars

Bringing magic to your ears!

SacredFire (previously 'Chants & Drums') is committed to offer innovative music journeys to individuals and groups who seek healthy and satisfying mental, physical, emotional and spiritual lives. We use musical expression as an empowering tool, and to build pathways between humans and their True Nature.
In our travels around the world, we invite communities to gather with conscious, loving intent, supporting them in their healing process and celebrating the gift of Oneness. We love to share Chants & Drums Sound Healing Meditations and Concerts, as well as Intuitive Singing and Creative Drumming Workshops. An important aspect of our work is supporting Yoga classes with our live music, as we have been doing at various Deepak Chopra Seduction of Spirit Meditation Retreats since the Summer of 2011.
