Shape Color Name and Sound

by The Supplicants



Shape Color Name and Sound

This is a call to spirits. A blessing whose melody has always been on our lips and in our heart’s mind. You’ve heard it before, you are familiar with its blessed narrative…you know the words and dance to the rhythms. You revel in the glory as collective voices unite as one. The horns speak of hopeful things even as they lament the passing of ancestors.

Not enough can be said about how important rhythm is to the fabric of life. We are beats and cyclical things, interplayed and looped, let loose in celestial dances, cosmic pirouettes of Teentaal, the swing of Elvin, low end root pulse dynamics. What moves you to believe and seek the silence in solitude is the Oneness of pure spiritual music. We are present amongst the delicate whispers and declarations of life. Clarions calls to archangels and Seraphim, Voices raised in devotion, sun kissed faces smiling, joined together by visionary extremes and enlightened third eye schemes……

Shape is color is name is sound, shape is color is name is sound, shape is color is name and sound……again and again and again the Believers sing….listen.
