By evoking a powerful emotional response in its listeners, this is truly positive music that can transform our planet.
“One day during the Apocalypse I got a call from Ricky Kej about making an album,” tells Stewart Copeland. “He had assembled an amazing collection of exotic musicians, or perhaps I should say deeply traditional musicians, in the exotic context of his inspired production style. The flow of ideas soon became a torrent of recording and music. The spiritual ambience (not something that I’m generally known for) infused my aggressions upon inanimate objects with loving passion. The timpani were ringing! The crotales were singing! Making this record has been a unique adventure in both music and divine awareness”.
The 64th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on January 31, 2022 in Los Angeles, California. The winners will be announced at this ceremony.
