ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Using mythological stories and images, KIVA weaves a rainbow tapestry of ancient cultures and natural imagery into energizing mystical folk music for all ages.
KIVA is a percussive, acoustic, world fusion ensemble that celebrates the magic of nature and ancient bardic traditions with music that opens the heart and heals the spirit. The band blends strong vocal harmonies with rich and diverse acoustic and electric instrumentation, performing originals, traditionals, and covers. The musicians are inspired by many cultures, spiritual disciplines, and musical styles, including celtic-folk, folk-rock, blues, big band, traditional chants, and jazz. KIVA is based in the Washington DC metro area, and has been nominated fourteen times (so far) for the Washington Area Music (Wammie) Award since 1996 in the "Best World Music duo/group" category -- Best World Music Group, Best World Music Vocalist (both Ariana Lightningstorm and Amikaeyla Proudfoot Gaston), and Best World Music Album (“Live at the Forest Inn” and “A Call to Beauty”).
KIVA, in one configuration or another, has been performing live since 1990 (that's sixteen years so far). Here’s what some of the reviews say:
"KIVA is a rather unusual ensemble... they have been performing live for over ten years now, and although there have been some member changes over the years, they still delight their audiences. KIVA is a group which celebrates the magic and essence of nature, as well as ancient bardic traditions, which inspire healing of the spirit. And their music is a reflection of healing spirituality, quite calming and soothing, and in some cases quite primal."
"Blending very strong vocal harmonies with rather diverse instrumentation, KIVA performs both traditional pieces and originals. This group takes what inspires them from different religions -- spiritual disciplines as well as a vast amount of musical styles -- and blends them in a huge melting pot of creativity. The result is a collection of discs which are really very difficult to describe effectively. You will find mythology and traces of ancient cultures blending with natural imagery, to create a tapestry of the world's history and preserving it for future generations." -- Naomi de Bruyn
"My partner and I saw [KIVA] perform and I can honestly say that this was the pivotal moment that started us on our search for the spirit. KIVA is directly responsible for my compelling conviction to share the musical gifts of the very talented artists weaving the web with all people of like mind." -- Odin Nighteagle
"While performing, KIVA invites group participation such as singing along with the chants, connection with others in the audience and dancing. A tangible energy is raised in the room and one is likely to laugh and cry, to feel At-One-ment with everyone in the room. At a recent concert most of the people in the room were dancing by the end of the performance. Most of these people were not in the habit of 'dancing in the streets', but it was hard to resist the enchantment of the music." -- P.W.S.A. magazine
"What impressed me most about the show is that the set list was totally different from the last two times I saw them. It is as if every show is custom tailored for the audience. KIVA puts on an extraordinary concert and I would suggest that everyone check them out." -- Harvest Magazine

A Must Have for Lovers of Nature Based Music!
I have owned this album since it was released and enjoy all the songs on it. Some are uplifting and joyous, others introspective and thought provoking, but all express a deep reverance for the natural world, the cylces of life and time.
I had the good fortune to see Kiva live last summer and look for to attending more shows this season.
