A Ceremony of Song

$14,278

A Ceremony of Song a personal healing experience and shamanic journey with 25 tracks of icaros and prayers pressed to a double vinyl collectors record. 

Throughout history, shamanic peoples of the world have believed in the power of song and musical vibration for opening connection to Spirit and healing. Now modern science is confirming what indigenous people have known and practiced all along, that sound and specifically the vibration of the human voice has a profound impact on the human body and the environment. It brings balance, harmony, health and well being and has a powerful healing effect. 

For years Jose, Lena and Anna Stevens have been studying the healing traditions of indigenous peoples including the Huichol of Mexico, the Shipibo-Conibo of the Amazon basin of Peru, the Q'ero and Quechua of the andean highlands to name a few, and have learned the importance and power of song as part of these traditions. Now they are collaborating to make the medicine of the healing songs, or icaros as they are called by the Shipibo, available to you in the form of a ceremonial record. 

Some of you have had the opportunity to receive the medicine of these healing songs in person, but many have not had that opportunity and by producing this album we can provide that experience for many more.  This record is designed as a container of activation and healing so that you can use it as a tool to support your intentions, your physical health and well being and anything you are calling in help for.  

A Ceremony of Song 

This project is structured around the four directions beginning in the East and moving to the South, West and ending in the North. Each direction includes prayers, the calling in of allies and songs for healing, blessing and supporting the listener's personal intentions. 

Some of the songs are more traditional and bring with them the power of their ancestral roots and some are fresh bringing in new energy and aligning us with the current frequencies and support available at this time on the planet. 

Here are some sample recordings awaiting mix and mastering:

Why Kickstarter?

Many of you have been asking for this for a long time and now it's finally happening! Even though we are the ones doing the recording, we really consider this a community effort and that is why we are using Kickstarter for the final stages of producing the record. By financially contributing to the making of this ceremony you are a part of it and a part of a strong community that is holding strong intention for healing and transformation of our world at this time and we fully intend that this record will have a far reaching beneficial impact. 

Most of the recording is complete and we are now in the Mastering and editing stages of the Album. 

We thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

The recording is mostly complete and now we're ready to finalize the project with mixing, mastering and pressing of vinyl. We have a vendor selected to do the vinyl and the printing but we've never made records before so there may be some changes to our delivery dates if there are any unexpected challenges that we encounter.
