Album Notes
The Sout Project ("salt" in Afrikaans, pronounced “note”) is pleased to present its debut album, “Story”.

This fresh expression of "world emergent" music has been conceived and recorded in Cape Town, South Africa.

While deeply engaged in diverse musical traditions, and oozing creative musicality, "Story" is more than just an album: it represents a vision, woven into song. Eclectic and ecumenical, the music emerges from a spiritual journey which is being shared by many others across the world.

Featuring the American writer and visionary Brian McLaren, the dazzling African choir Siyaya, the haunting Xhosa traditional musician Madosini, the poignant voice of "tribal elder" Annemie Bosch, and a dizzying array of exotic instruments & organic electronica, the Sout Project is a broad collective of creative people, singers, instrumentalists, writers, and prophets, curated and cajoled by composer/producer Nic Paton.

“Story” will appeal to spiritual seekers and seasoned worshippers alike, as it frames the concerns of today’s world as well as some ancient responses to perennial questions, in an inclusive, open ended invitation to take part in the Divine drama, this Story in which we find ourselves.

Thomas Turner

absolutely fantastic
I think it is absolutely fantastic ... it really brings a multicultural presence to Emergence Christianity that is desperately needed.

Brian McLaren

What a gift
What a gift The Sout Project's "Story" is to all of us ... a beautifully-crafted presentation of original songs that enrich and inspire both in their content and form. Many voices, many cultures, many styles, many rhythms ... all woven together in one richly textured musical fabric colored by good news of hope, peace, and joy.

profound, breathtaking ... speaks direct to the heart!
Congrats with SOUT! I love the honesty and freshness ... The arrangements are profound. Vine, Circle, Meditation with Mechtild is breathtaking - and the contemplative "In all Things" speaks direct to the heart!
