Album Notes

This shamanic-inspired album takes the listener into an inner exploration.

The journey begins with an invitation to decend into deeper realms of the soul. The familiar landscape of every day reality dissolves, leaving room for new possibilities. Shamanic forces are invited to invoke transformation, which is the axis where opposites meet, the treshold that joins the above and the below.

Within the Shamanic crucible, songs of the heart emerge, which enrich the soul with the qualities of gratitude and devotion.

This journey is inspired by our ancestors and teachers from different world traditions; Australia, Bulgaria, England, Eskasoni, France, Israel, Italy, Mexico and South Africa.


Francoise Bourzat is a group leader, a woman gatherer, a shamanic guide and a teacher of Earth/Sprit wisdom. She has offered her guidance in the field of personal healing and of deep connection with Earth’s mystery for the last 25 years to people in Europe, the Middle East and the USA. Deep states of inner journey and group holding have inspired these songs and she offers them to others for everyone’s inner strength and inner peace.

Jacques Rossouw

I started my journey into the world of music as a percussionist, growing up and walking the streets of Johannesburg, listening to street performers playing Mbaqanga.

In 1995 I moved to San Francisco and was deeply affected when I heard a live performance with Stephen Kent playing didjeridoo. In the collection of rhythmic animal calls and insect sounds he made through the didjeridoo, I heard, for the first time, the transformative and profoundly spiritual message of the Dreamtime. I committed myself to the didjeridoo and soon found myself traveling to Australia to learn from the original keepers of this ancient and sacred language: the Yolngu people of Arnhemland, Northern Australia.

I honor and thank Djalu Gurruwiwi for his generosity and guidance and offer my music with deep respect to the ancestoral wisdom of all indigenous cultures, past and present.
