A Song for Healing
It's always a delight to receive help from talented field recordists. The song you hear was recorded by Cameron McBride during a trip to the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. If you like rainforest sounds, check out Cameron's album, entitled Relaxing Sounds of the Amazon Rainforest.
While reviewing Cameron's recordings, I fell under the spell of a particular audio file named "Amelia." Amelia is a shaman from Peru. She sings an icaro, a magic song passed down to her from a long line of healers. I love her raw vocal tone and the relaxing nature of this particular song. It sounds like a lullaby and instantly makes me feel at peace.
This song invites us to listen to our bodies and to discover the exact nature of the healing that is taking place. Since we do not understand Amelia's words, nor know her exact intentions, we must find out. We must become aware. And that is what I like so much about this soundscape.
Many thanks to Cameron for sharing his wonderful recording with us!
