about

Inspired by the magical realm of Elementals (nature spirits), this album is an artistic collaboration of musical genres. Retro analogue synths merging with Flutes, chilled Jazz Saxophone and Electro-Tribal rhythms on Didjeridoo. Fresh expressions of music to move and inspire you.

The entire album is an Ode to the invisible nature spirits (Elementals) that dwell in every living creature and animate the 5 Elements Air, water, earth, Fire and Ether.

Praful and the New Zealander Sika met in 2010 during Praful's first visit to New Zealand — there was an instant connection. Since then, they have played several concerts together in NZ and Europe.
This is their first release together - their music spans from the heavens deep into the Earth. Wind blowing through wood, gentle, wild; a fresh breeze that moves you to the core.
