about

Yaima's first album "Pellucidity" is a beauteous and bewitching collection of stories that seem to lead the listener on a journey through enticing soundscapes and floating melodies. Sustained by biological beats and engaging world rhythms, "Pellucidity" will soothe the savage and move the peaceful being in all of us....

Pellucidity means- to allow the maximum passage of light, to see clearly, as clear as fresh water in a mountain lake...

Pellucidity has been released on the label Jumpsuit Records which was established by David Sugalski aka The Polish Ambassador. The label was created as a platform for like-minded artist to collaborate, cross-pollinate, promote, perform, tour and brainstorm. It is moving away from a standard label paradigm to more of a musical collective. The aim is to bring high vibrations to as many people as possible in order to inspire and create joy through music and creativity. We feel like it's a good formula. jumpsuitrecords.bandcamp.com

Track Name: Reservoir
Dive deep beneath the Ocean, deeper than the riverbed,
And there you'll find me waiting a simple story to tell-
Of a time of living water, deeper than the wishing wells,
A time to heal the ocean, a time of dark black oil.

Listen can you hear me? though distant we may be,
my eyes close and see you, your two deep blue seas-
Still as morning break free, troubles with the night
water tells our story as it moves from life to life.

One way leads to heaven, or maybe to the sea-
you can choose your own way, or you can come with me
some will offer emeralds, others offer pearls,
all I have to offer, are these humble words.
Track Name: Chasing Antares
Started out this morning, early morning grey
Heavy clouds are lifting delivering the day

Wise woman told me, sing about your time
Feelings you're perceiving break the dotted line

And run just like the river towards what you think is right
Love will always lead you, love will show you light

Listen very closely, darkness follows light
But without the darkness we would all lose sight
Of the way were headed the way we need to be
Music's all translated now the poetry.
Track Name: Reflection
Fear slowly sinks it stride across the floor
If that caught your ear then you'll want to hear more.
It parades around the inner-states of the mind,
And feeds on stories that conceal the light.

* Bright early awakening the veil will be lifted

For its in the shadows that fear fools the heart,
It hides all our power and rewrites our part.
Deep in the breakdown the stillness reveals,
That each heart has been gifted a luminous well.

* Bright early awakening the veil has been lifted
*And we can't consume everything that were given.

And in this awakening the forest reminds us
To move like the water caresses the hillside,
It's lessons of cyclical healing can teach us
It changes quite subtly what time could not deny

*Bright Early awakening the veil has been lifted
*And we won't consume everything that were given

In fact we are left with a hope to see clearly,
These things we've been given and reflect the beauty.
Track Name: Pellucidity
The yellow lilly paints the morning dew,
and the cold nights leave me with nothing to do
for the dream I've awakened begins with you
and the wild bird sings about dancing with the truth

This is the story about the climb
the venture that drew a simple line
into the forest and under the rocks
where I could sit with my deepest thought

The patterns we weave here on the earth
and a clear mind to see them for myself
the patterns we weave here on the earth
and a clear mind to see them for myself
and a clear mind
Track Name: Gajumaru
Oh
Creating concrete visions of a macroscopic prism
with a brilliant optimism and appropriate ambition
to be open from the center redirected to the moment
this is it love this is it love- unrestrainable nature
we can change it from the edges- we can challenge all our borders
there is always a new leader there is always a new order
our pathway is proceeding and the way is always changing
we are free from what prevents us to realize our destination

oh
free from all old stories Ive been told-
I walk through the valley of my own shadow
free from all old stories Ive been told-
I walk through the valley of my own shadow

Awareness is my virtue and I'm grateful for the search to
dive deep within my own mind and to trust the intuition
of the lives I've lived before this- our essential form of gnosis
its a simple form of freedom its as smooth as inhalation
oh the exhale is releasing all the tension I've been feeling
on the surface and beneath me I'm connecting to my spirit
and I'm here now right before you I am present in this moment
and my lifes work is to honor the great beauty all around you

Oh
free from all old stories I've been told-
I walk through the valley of my own shadow
free from all old stories I've been told-
I walk through the valley of my own shadow

Creating concrete visions of a macrocosmic prism
with a brilliant optimism and appropriate ambition
to be open from the center, redirected to the moment
this is it love, this is it love, this is it love...
Track Name: Destiny
In the old oak forest the light is dancing on the trees
from the water dropping off the leaves
gently they hurry down the rocks to the creek
bringing with the a story a song the light from the trees

Rain doesnt doubt that it will end up at the sea
doesnt seem to worry about its destiny

Carry on carry on to streams
till they reach the rushing river, rushing free
making their way through the land hills and trees,
they may fall but trust their memory

Rain doesnt doubt that it will end up at the sea
Doesnt seem to worry about its destiny

Pausing only in rhythm to the mothers heart beat
Wonder just how different is out journey from the seas
When the heart is grateful will the water set us free
When the heart is grateful will the water set us free

rain doesnt doubt that it will end up at the sea
doesnt seem to worry about its destiny
Track Name: Dust Moves Again
Listen to the music in the rushing wind,
Ever let it whisper let it sink right in
Through the echo of a long lost friend
The lesson is unfolding in the painting of the wind

Words are wasted quickly in the passing of the day
Need to listen closely to hear what you say
Lost in translation all i have is dreams
I wake up with a hunger to taste just what i see

Open the vents to let a little light in-
It slowly heats the ground
And lets the dust move again
Remember where you came from
Remember where you've been
We all start somewhere but we end up all the same
Track Name: Kyo
You whose drum is the pulse of all creation
you whose dance is the motion of all worlds
you have sung to me of the ways of union
you have sung to me this song

My questions lead to fullness
You have sung to me this song
You have sung to me the ways of union
You have sung to me this song
space and time
personal impersonal
space and time
personal impersonal

you have sung to me
you have sung to me this song

You whose drum is the pulse of all creation
you whose dance is the motion of all worlds
you have sung to me this song of all creation
you have sung the song of home

you whose drum
you have sung
energy and form
infinite, finite.
