with Kwali Kumara
Kwali Kumara (a.k.a. Kwali Lox) has been a familiar figure on the psy scene for many years as a dancer and performance artist, often seen accompanied by some of her family of snakes. She's also a renowned Kundalini yoga instructor with a large following in London. We've been friends for many years but 2015 was the first time we've worked together, although my first commmissioned remix was for Kwali's single Psyberspace on Archangel.
We've now produced 2 albums of settings of mantras, Exalted and Ecstatic, designed to be used in Kundalini Yoga meditations but also to stand in their own right as music to listen or dance to.
I've had a lifelong interest in the transformational, spiritual side of music so I jumped at the chance to work on this even though I've had no experience of Kundalini Yoga myself. Though Exalted was originally planned as a one-off it was so well received that we are now planning a third album and several side projects.
