A musical adventure in Berlin….. With Kadamba Kanana Swami.
My purpose of visiting Berlin, besides meeting friends and having a good time, was to finalise the latest music CD for my very good friend and spiritual teacher Kadamba Kanana Swami. Luckily some friendships are beyond time and space so good fortune allowed that two of my old band members also happen to live and work in Berlin. My friends Pete & Simon are professional musicians and expert in recording and producing music. So this was a excellent opportunity to finish the CD with their musical experience.
Pete and Simon have their own band project called “Potwhale“. They compose music within their self defined genre that they call “Transcendental Space Metal” and they were kind enough to invite us to their studio.
Kadamba Kanana Swami and me set foot in their studio to refine his upcoming CD. The CD needed a good intro, interludes and a good exit track. Kadamba Kanana Swami provides vocals and Pete played the Zen Tambour. Additionally i was dubbing in some piano tracks that Simon arranged into a master session during recording.
Both Pete and Simon expressed that they were honoured by Kadamba Kanana Swami’s visit, and it certainly was an honour for me as well. I was astounded by Pete and Simon’s service mood and how they are able to remain aloof from material circumstances, even when they have to work with dissident musician’s all the time. Please like their facebook page if you are interested in their music.
We all had a great time, it all came out pretty good, and we very much thank Potwhale for their support, making all this happen….
