Building the Bridge

Creating music is an amazing process.

Take this song, for example.

Rakhe Rakhanhaar...

I began singing this shabad as part of the Aquarian Sadhana with two friends a few years ago. We called ourselves "Treysha."

We decided to put this version on my new album (coming summer 2013), but my producer and I felt it needed something... a bridge.

Mantra music can get a little repetitive, and that's OK. Most of the time, that's the point. But sometimes it's nice to break things up with some English lyrics... something to give a song a little more musical appeal.

Anyway, here's what I came up with:

Ram Dass (my producer) doesn't like the word "orchestra." I'm trying to think of something a little less cerebral to substitute it with... or leave it be.
