New Eco-Music Album Champions Natural Sound Renaissance to Counter Corona Anxiety

UBUD, Indonesia~Bali’s world celebrated sound healer and vocalist, Shervin Boloorian (UK, USA, IRAN), will release a collection of natural sounds and songs to help counter the current wave of global anxiety.

“I conceived this album as a soothing journey into Mother Earth’s elements; inviting listeners home to nature’s healing gifts,” says Boloorian of the album entitled “I Hear You Mother Earth: Planetary Medicine Music.”

The album contains 12 tracks, including original “medicine” songs in five languages, set among a variety of natural soundscapes and acoustic instruments used for sound therapy. The first track from the album is already available for listening.

“Millions today are aware of how therapeutic natural sounds and music are increasingly effective at neutralizing modern-day stress. The pressures of our current global crisis can also be relieved through natural sound “medicine,” Boloorian explains.

By reconnecting to music from the land, Boloorian reasons “fears of losing control in these alarming times can be better transcended.”

“Being comforted by the subtle and simple music front the earth, eases humanity at a time when we may feel confused, isolated and fearful,” he asserts.  “It’s a form of coming home that music entertainment can’t provide.”

Candice Meyer from Greenpeace Africa, based in Johannesburg, describes Shervin’s medicine music as “phenomenal.” She goes on to say, “Shervin Boloorian’s Sound Medicine journey was one of the very special highlights of my life,” and testifies to his music’s power to create “deep, positive shifts within ourselves and for the good of humanity.”

Recordings of environmental sounds such as waterfalls, ocean life, jungle noises, birds of prey, natural wind, and NASA planetary sounds provide bio-backdrops for the studio music recordings.

With the worldwide release date set for Earth Day, (April 22, 2020), the album is a studio version of Shervin’s signature “Sound Medicine” live music journeys: acoustic instrument-based explorations of nature’s elements and songs from ancient texts that he says “carry profound messages from the land as medicine for humanity.”

Boloorian brings his vocal and multi-instrumental talents into this “Eco-music” project by playing: Didgeridoo, Bamboo Gamelan, Handpan, Native Prayer Flute, Egyptian Ney, Zither, crystal singing bowls, and nylon guitar as just some of the instruments on “I Hear You, Mother Earth.”

Also featured is local Balinese guest presenter, Gede Artha (Partha), who shares traditional opening and closing Balinese chants and plays the Balinese bell (Guntha) and gong on the recording.
