What we like

  • The gentle harmonies sung in combination with the music give you a feeling of peace that transcends the need to understand the words.  However, once you see the translation of the words it gives it greater depth and caresses your soul

Soul experience

  • This beautiful lullaby sets the scene for an incredible movie and it lulls you into a sense of wonderment of the story that unfolds

  • Are you the eyelid?  Or the dreams within? …
  • Are you a flower?  Or it’s sweet nectar? …
