Soothing for the soul, Ayla Schafer’s second album ‘Silent Voices’ weaves wisdom from the earth with the healing power of song.
“These songs came through me over a few years of intense self excavation, from my deep healing journey and the profound prayers of my heart during that time. They are my conversations and communications with the invisible kingdom and the beings that live there, with the voices that are always whispering, singing, speaking, guiding us in words that are silent to our physical ears, but that are heard by our heart and spirit.
They honour that which is Sacred, the Elements, the Ancestors, the Earth, the Sky, the Wisdom of the invisible kingdom, the Spirit world, the Silent Voices that are guiding and reminding us that we are all part of a holy creation, all related, all a breath of the Great Spirit of life.
I truly hope you are deeply fed by the prayer of these songs, that your hearts are nourished and that they help you to navigate this ‘being human’ especially in such challenging times.” – Ayla Schafer
Inspired by years travelling in South America and receiving knowledge from the indigenous wisdom keepers of the lands she visited, Ayla’s second album is a beautiful offering of delicate melodies and poetic lyrics. Produced by Brazilian artist Txai Fernando, ‘Silent Voices‘ is medicine through sound and a message from spirit.
“A moving, intricate folk record that combines musical elements from contrasting parts of the world but carries a message about inclusivity and introspection. An album title that is especially relevant for the challenging times we all face, calling for cultures to be more aligned on issues we encounter as a species and the environment we live in.”
