“11:11 can be interpreted as synchronicity or serendipity, and fits neatly with the ethos of Art’s continued penchant for recording music in the healing frequency of 432 Hz.” - Chris Porter 

— Stereostickman

 

WHY 11:11 Name? 

Some numerologists and New Age philosophies believe that events linked to the time 11:11 appear more often than can be explained by chance or coincidence and is an example of synchronicity. Some authors claim that seeing 11:11 on a clock is an auspicious sign. Others claim that 11:11 signals a spirit presence. 

So I wanted to create a very unique album, promoting harmonious healing frequencies to help humanity and the environment.

Track 2 Perennial Wisdom in 432Hz. feat. Reza Kashi 
Length: 04:03 
ISRC: GBKPL2005018 

The story behind this track and Why Perennial Wisdom name? 

In the context of Perennial Wisdom truth is that which leads us beyond alienation and isolation to integration and unity; beyond fear to love; beyond exploitation of the other to justice for all; beyond violence and war to cooperation and peace; beyond the zero–sum, winner-takes-all worldview of “us against them” to the nonzero win-win worldview of “all of us together;” beyond the bifurcated world of chosen and not chosen, believer and infidel, saved and damned, truth–sayer and heretic to the unified world of seekers; and beyond the dualism of sacred and profane, heaven and earth, Creator and creation to the awareness that every finite “this” is a manifestation of the infinite and ineffable That.

Featuring Artists: 

Keyhan Kalhor (Persian Kamanche) 

Short Bio: Is an internationally acclaimed virtuoso on the kamancheh (spiked fiddle), who through his many musical collaborations has been instrumental in popularizing Persian around the world and is a creative force in today’s music scene. His performances of traditional Persian music and multiple collaborations have attracted audiences around the globe. He has studied the music of Iran’s many regions, in particular those of Khorason and Kordestan, and has toured the world as a soloist with various ensembles and orchestras including the New York Philharmonic and the Orchestre National de Lyon. He is co-founder of the renowned ensembles Dastan and Masters of Persian Music.

He has composed music for television and film and was featured on the soundtrack of Francis Ford Copolla’s Youth Without Youth in a score that he collaborated on with Osvaldo Golijov. John Adams invited him to give a solo recital at Carnegie Hall as part of his Perspectives Series and he has appeared on a double bill at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival, sharing the program with the Festival Orchestra performing the Mozart Requiem.

Toumani Diabate 

Short Bio: Is one of the most important musicians in Africa. Toumani plays the kora, a harp unique to West Africa with 21 strings; and more than any other kora player it is Toumani who is responsible for bringing this instrument to audiences around the world. He is a performer of truly exceptional virtuosity and creativity - someone who shows that the kora can rival the world’s greatest instruments. 

Toumani was born in Bamako, the capital of Mali, in 1965 into a family of exceptional griots (hereditary musician/historian caste); his research shows 71 generations of kora players from father to son. The most notable was his father, Sidiki Diabaté (c. 1922-96), a kora player of legendary fame in West Africa - dubbed King of the Kora at the prestigious international Black Arts Festival Festac in 1977, and a continuing inspiration to all kora players to this day. Sidiki was born in the Gambia of Malian parents. He settled in Mali after the second world war, where he became famous for his virtuoso “hot” and idiosyncratic style of playing (echoes of which can be heard in Toumani’s style). After Mali became independent in 1960, Sidiki was invited to join the Ensemble National Instrumental – a government-sponsored group formed to celebrate the richness of Malian culture - along with his first wife, Toumani’s mother, the singer Nene Koita. Sidiki and Nene were much favored by the first president, Modibo Keita – who gave them the land on which the family house now stands, underneath the presidential palace in Bamako.
