"In the Presence of Spirit"
Shamanic, hypnotic, ambient, and rhythmic musical journey. SHAMAN'S TRANCE is a blend of acoustic and electronic instruments and multiple styles featuring Paradiso on Didjeridoo and other exotic instruments such as drums, Tibetan bowls & bells, vocals, and percussion. Paradiso, an initiate of the sacred Sound-Current creates music that catapults listeners into true bliss and the energy of Love. Although suitable for everyday casual listening, this recording is specifically designed to accompany a full yoga class or a massage session. Listening to this music rejuvenates your body on many subtle levels. It's a melodic, hypnotic, and rhythmic musical journey.
Paradiso's music carries the sound current that has helped people to heal themselves on all levels. Some say his music has the capacity to shift them towards their life purpose, their passion, and that it can balance the body and release unwanted blockages.
Paradiso (Paradiso Turturici) lives and performs in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he was born. Being a producer, composer and musician, he formed his own music publishing company "5th Element Vibes Music," and
functions under his record label "5th Element Music." A self-taught musician, Paradiso plays various instruments such as keyboards, Theremin,and Harmonica, Didjeridoo but he is also a vocalist.
He has followed a spiritual path for many years, now working as a sound therapist, massage therapist and holistic health practitioner. Through many one-on-one sessions with his clients he has developed a unique musical healing method, which includes "playing" the patient's body with musical vibration using the instrument for which he is best known, an indigenous instrument from Australia called the Didjeridoo.
Paradiso owns a large variety of Didjeridoos, each producing a different sound.He plays intuitively, and, as he puts it, "Spirit plays through me!" He adds, "I believe music can heal the mind, body and spirit and liberate
us. My vision is to inspire all of us to rediscover our oneness with each other, with our environment and with all of creation through music."
Paradiso also appears on several other recordings with his mentor Tajalli & the band 3D ("Vibes" and "Journey into Shabad"), and with Gary Miraz ("Through Fields of Stars" and "Circular").
