Blue Lotus is Don Peyote's masterfully crafted sojourn into a dreamlike shamanic soundscape.
It is a deep meditative journey evolving beautifully from moment to moment,a moving meditation on the quiet power inherent in vast spaces radiating light even as darkness hovers along the edges.
In this imaginary trip to the amazon forest in search of the Blue Lotus ,Don Peyote effortlessly fuses tribal live instrumentation ,sacred chants , Amazon forest field recordings and multi layered synthesised drones ,the result is timeless and emotive .
This one hour introspective journey was originally designed as a musical backdrop for modern rituals and for optimum results it is recommended to listen to this experiential composition in one session—preferably in a darkened meditative environment.
