Concert of European Overtonechoir

Today, it was wonderful. I was in Podebrady at the EOC (at the end of the meeting) and managed to record part of the concert. Just as much as the battery of my old notebook allowed me to. :)

The Story of Our CD with Krishna Das

Gathering in the Light



In October of 2004 Krishna Das attended a release party for PRANA's first CD, "The Eternal Embrace". After Prana had sung, Krishna Das said to Baird, "Let's make a record together or something".
