Poem by EW La Plaza Blanca You could see it from Her house in Abiquiú Across the Rio Chama Georgia’s skull-white Landscape muse It is owned now by a mosque Dar al Islam That grants us heathens And pilgrims of Other Respectful access To this pallid sanctum Of tuneful wind Raven song ringing beyond Chalky hoodoos and Along milky ledges Pastel creek beds That seem to run More ways than One Then silence Then song again Then wind Then none With the ghost of Georgia and The hosts of Muhammed We are tracking a shadowy past Slipping through Crescent fences Of barbwire and bone Pondering strange exhibits Of black stones on this ashen canvas Stretching beyond time This sun-bleached forever Is quite hard to find There are no signs And the address in the local guide Is 1234 Fictitious Lane.

Om Asatoma 04:26
असतो मा सद्गमय । तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय । मृत्योर्माऽमृतं गमय ॥ Om asato mā sadgamaya, tamaso mā jyotirgamaya, mṛtyormā'mṛtaṃ gamaya Lead me from the unreal to the real. Lead me from darkness to light. Lead me from the finite to the infinite.

about

Rooted in love and grief, connection and continuation, "She Who Watches" expands on ideas and instrumentation introduced on our previous recording, "Notes to Nikki." It continues the Indalo Wind practice of mixing traditional and original compositions with improvisation, realized on a diverse and dynamic array of instruments. Dedicated to our beloved Nikki, "She Who Watches" features unique adaptations of ancient Sanskrit chants, Lakota melodies, and folk songs, amid haunting meditations for oud and wood flute.
