ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the Universe are thirteen heavens. At the twelfth one, lives Mother and Father.
They are looking at the ninth heaven, where the human soul is being weaved, before it takes place in a woman’s womb.
One drop of divine blood goes to the new human being and gives him/her a breath of life.
When this life comes to it’s end, this drop will start a journey back to the twelfth heaven. In this way, the human being will always return where it belongs to.

This is one of the magical stories of the Mayan and Mexica mysticism, source of the inspiration of the music of Magda Angelica, a composer and singer, born in Guatemala, Central America.

Two Mayan women took a very important roll in her childhood, and then, she went to Mexico, where she had the opportunity to be close to people who lives the Nahuatl spirituality.

This music is a fusion of prehispanic instruments and of electronic sounds, in Mesoamerican rhythms.
Is a mix between traditional percussion, ancient clay instruments, marimba, and cello, guitar and accordion.

Some of the Songs
“La Danza de la Luna” (Dance to the Moon) that it’s a story about a ritual that women make’s to Grand Mother Moon in one magical night. All women are dressed like butterflies, flowers, etc., inspired by nature.
Thousands of women are dancing around the fire. They are celebrating their feminity, fertility, and are offering a gift to Grand Mother Moon, who is looking them with all her magnificence in the sky.

“Latido de Montaña”, (“Mountain beat”) is a pray to ask for strength in our voices. To recover the female energy qualities, to be co creators of life, women and men, to have peace back in our hearts.

A mystical voyage through time and middle-american cultures
I can't help but to be fascinated with this CD. A wonderful introduction to Middle-American cultures, each song portrays a story or a face of these incredible lands. Very enjoyable.
