HeartSpirit is my first Solo album. A "polilingual" CD of multicultural prayers, original songs & a wide array of world instruments.
HeartSpirit will be my first solo album after taking part in 3 cd 's of collaborative work with first rate world musician partners.
In this album I will be singing my own original songs, some ancient prayers, peace songs & covers of heart songs from different cultures , accompanied by top of the line musicians from different countries, which will also sing in their own languages (Hebrew, English, Farsi, Arabic, Spanish, etc)
The music will go from upbeat & ecstatic to contemplative soundscapes, simple mantras & prayers.
Guitar, the computer & other western instruments will blend with Persian santour, and other eastern , African, South American & tribal sounds.
HeartSpirit will be an acoustic bridge between the hearts of cultures, potentially followed by multicultural concerts around the planet. The concerts are always spiced up by peace & spirit personal stories & intentions.
The cd will be composed of 10 to 13 tracks.
The $13,000 budget will serve to record, produce, mix, master the songs, print cd's and booklet/ cover design and deliver your rewards & prizes.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The challenges are to accomplish this project in a short amount of time with a tight budget. What makes me feel that I have what it takes to manifest HeartSpirit is my 9 years of experience ,organizing, recruiting and managing a peace NGO, as co-founder & co-director of Sulha Peace Project - and my years touring internationally.
These endeavors left me with many amazing personal connections to wonderful international musicians who will be recording with me at low cost.
