Welcome to Liquid Bloom :: Music for Inner Trance, Meditation & Sound Healing
For nearly two decades Amani Friend has been at the helm of the global-electronic project Liquid Bloom. Feeling equally at home on the international festival dance circuit, in the yoga studio, and in the more subtle sonic spaces reserved for intentional ceremonies guided by ancient allies, the wide-ranging artist collective under the umbrella of the Liquid Bloom project spans distance, time, and dimensions of mind. As one half of Desert Dwellers, Amani brings his dance floor guidance and experience to harness a deeper, transportive journey, giving as much weight to calm and the serene as to the ecstatic groove. As founder of Liquid Bloom, he has guided the project through its many lives, and its many rebirths at the hands of remixers AtYyA, Numatik, and Mose to name a few. Joining Amani on stage and in the studio is one-man looping orchestra Poranguí, whose own globe-trotting journey has made his musical upbringing as varied as the instruments he lays before him. A Liquid Bloom performance with the Brazilian-born, U.S.-based artist sees him bounce between didgeridoo, kalimba, and vocals with ease, as he masterfully weaves ancestral songs & indigenous rhythms from around the world to move the body and lift the Spirit.
The Liquid Bloom experience unfolds in a multitude of incarnations. Amani is able to craft deep, entrancing journeys during his solo DJ sets. As a duo, Amani and Poranguí are able to balance and weave the organic and the electronic within their performances. With multi-instrumentalists, singers, and performers like Kaminanda, Deya Dova, Shamans Dream, and Ixchel Prisma, the Liquid Bloom live band springs to life, bringing the catalog into view through an entirely different lens, and bursting with a vibrancy and depth of artistic harmony.
Liquid Bloom is an intentional sound healing project produced by Amani Friend (of Desert Dwellers). This music is designed to support ceremonial trance states of awakening, weaving powerful vocals and instrumentation from around the world into a layered-multidimensional sonic tapestry. Some of the artists and auditory alchemists that collaborate on this project along with Amani are Ixchel Prrisma, Rara Avis, Robert Mirabal, Sarah West, and Aum Prakash.
This music has diverse applications from simply unwinding from stressful situations to purposeful inner journeying or trance dancing; from enhancing bodywork, meditation or yoga to inspiring one's creativity. Inner visions may or may not appear. Inner knowing or deep insights may surface. Or we may just simply feel a renewed lightness of spirit, clarity and joy.
