MY NEW SINGLE ~SAMPRATI HUM~ IS NOW OUT!
Samprati Hum – Sanskrit Mantra [Sahm.prah.tee.hum] ‘The Present moment is my true self’ > Your presence is your power. Samprati: - now, at present, at this time - to trust in, believe firmly in - to decide, settle, determine Hum: - a state of being, actively engaged in activity - ‘I’ or ‘I am’ Ananda: *(in Hinduism, Buddhism, an Jainism) -extreme happiness, one of the highest states of being
I'm really honoured to finally release my new single featuring my Saskatoon music brothers Earl Pereira and Christian Kongawi!
It's always fascinating what music feels like it wants to come through when you open up to the flow of music. Apparently all the Paul Simon, yoga mantras and Brazilian Samba came together (sprinkled with some Lion King for good measure) to fuse this original world medicine song into being.
You can also listen to it on my artist Spotify page HERE:
And thank you Adrián Callejas (@eltripador) for the artwork!

We're in our final two weeks of our extended three month Circus Island Artist Residency...and WOW. I'm continously blown away by the creative minds and embodied spirits that get drawn to our project. And excited to expand further into having more local artists join our international Momentom fam!
Our latest video from Circus Island showcases the reflections of one of our Local Artist Scholarship recipients, Ivan Saballos, on his experience at our Momentom Artist Residency on Isla Ometepe as well as his hopes and aspirations for Nicaragua to find expansion and love through self expression!
Dale pues hermano!

We're going to need some time to decompress after such a wild and full past 3+ months, but we're already looking forward to getting back to Indonesia for our Artist Residency on Sumbawa Island this September and October! For more info check HERE with more details to come soon!
I'm wishing everyone presence in their week ahead - and let's allow that presence to be our power!
