Samana Music's 'Ascension' album launch party at Latest Music Bar! Tickets:Resident Brighton: 01273 606312Seetickets: http://bit.ly/SAMANA-LMBDice: https://link.dice.fm/My3DXMG7VVSamana was realised in the heart of an Austrian forest surrounding a secret lake 3000 meters above sea level, during a journey the pair undertook across the natural wildernesses anddistant cities of Europe; unaware of when they would return or where the road would take them. The name Samana provides an insight into the many conceptual layers that make up the band. As an ancient Sanskrit term, it speaks of one ‘who abandons the conventional obligations of social life in order to find a way of life more in tune with the ways of nature.’Between themselves, Rebecca Rose Harris and Franklin Mockett are multi-disciplinary artists. Franklin crafts the instrumentation, recording, and production of the music to tape, whilst Rebecca Rose is the visionary behind the conceptual imagery, artwork, lyrics and film. The process by which all works are recorded is of great importance to Samana, who compose their art in their analogue recording studio and darkroom in the remote mountains of Wales.Samana’s music offers a direct passage into the essence of ourselves, removing ones veneer, with threads of poetical sincerity, emotional honesty and direct openness. Each song iswritten with its own distinct weight and significance, born from the interpretation of dreams, the philosophies of ancient rituals and personal experience of love, loss and death. Throughtheir rare and honest appreciation of dichotomy, their music emerges almost hauntingly, to lead us into the realms of the unassociated and unknown.Ascension is the passage from one plane of thought and existence to another, through deliberations of love, loss and freedom. The album, which was composed in the remote valleys of Wales solely by Rebecca Rose and Franklin Mockett, offers their ruminations' of solitude in the isolation of nature. Each song is a meditation laid to tape, forming an album of a natural order of thought and feeling to take us to great heights.https://www.samanaroad.com/samana-musicPlus supportUpcoming Love Thy Neighbour shows:17042019 - Anna St. Louis.
