Who is able to keep the balance among the elements composing her/his body Spreads harmony all around Now I know The nature of the vibrations produced by my instrument And I tune what is dissonant I survived to the hard proof, A Sudden and bad illness, Using it to grow and belong I am free As the poison as turned into a remedy That flows from the deep roots up to the top of the branches And spreads out. Here and Now . The protagonist of this new musical voyage of ATARAXIA is an avatar, a spirit of light, a healer and a shaman who has taken different form and bodies and has travelled all over the ages till nowadays. This being was born in the mythic Age of Gold, a time in which the male and female sides of human beings were in perfect harmony, a time in which humans didn't need to pray Gods because they were Gods themselves, a sparkle of light shone inside them. They were wise, complete, fulfilled, in harmony with all the living beings surrounding them. Then the Silver Age came, a time in which women, the feminine essence managed to keep a strict relationship with the primigenial forces, Nature laws, all what was sacred and sacredness itself. After, the Age of Bronze came, it was the time of warriors, of virility, brute force and blood, courage and violence. Then we got here, to the Age of Iron, our time, a phase were, apparently, all the values have been turned up-side-down, the links among women, men and primigenial forces have weakened, beauty, grace, harmony and intensity have been forgotten. Crossing different times in different forms (a noble horse, a centuries-old forest, a huge mountain, a sacred drum, a prophetess, a deep abyss, a holy source, a wind, a healer), living different experiences in places very far the ones from the others with traditions, codes, beliefs that were, sometimes, actually distant, our avatar and shaman kept on following his/her path keeping his/her flame alight and vivid, always believing that an awakening, a new awareness in balance with the laws of earth and cosmos can be still achieved. Through music as well and through singing, as voice is made to celebrate, to heal... ATARAXIA have worked to this new album for two years and a half spending one year and a half in a recording studio to obtain the right atmosphere and sound environment. Music of sand, music of leaves, music of the colour of the desert and the one of an old wood, red and green; songs inspired by both the celtic and eastern traditions with breaks of elegiac and bewitching moments. Perfumes and visual suggestions, all the senses are arisen in this voyage whose essence is the uncheangable heart of Time. It is time, oh Bards, to embrace your lyre and sing your sacred chant... Ataraxia in this voyage played the following instruments: classical, folk and 12 strings guitars, chitarra battente, keyboards, flutes, sitar, gamelan, daf, frame drums, santoor, tablas, zard and bells. Main female vocals are often accompanied by male back vocals. . "Shakti, energy of life fed-up by the generous roots of earth, ruby-red snake, help me discovering the natural laws hidden inside me"
