    SONGS OF AYAHUASCA - Ayahuasca cultures across the Amazon are very rich and varied, the one thread that unites them all is the use of music. These songs, of ayahuasca, for ayahuasca, carry in them the knowledge of these traditions. This CD has been specially compiled from our personal recordings. It includes our favorite Vegetalista icaros from Perú, Yage songs from Colombia, hymns from the Daime and Barquinha churches in Brazil, and UDV chamadas. Nothing like it exists anywhere. The CD comes with a booklet with liner notes, pictures, and translations of the lyrics. Please add $5 for international orders
