HOUSE OF THE BELOVED, Maniko's recent CD is a musical remembrance--a bridge between our troubled, tired, raggedy selves and the sweetest, divine, ecstatic world. Here is music that moves people in all ways: funky grooves to seduce people off the walls and into the beat, ballads that break hearts open and turn people towards each other, ecstatic trance music that sends everyone soaring, timeless mantras that drop us into the heart of silence and stillness.
Maniko clearly knows the worlds of ecstatic dance, prayer, trance and the unbearable beauties of love. Her songwriting is pure poetry of words and music, and her singing moves along the captivating edges of skill and freedom, power and grace. This album is an invitation into divine territory. Take the ride.
