Galdre Visions is a Leaving Records supergroup comprised of Olive Ardizoni (Green-House); South Asian-American sitarist, vocalist, and composer/producer Ami Dang; Diva Dompé (Yialmelic Frequencies, Diva & The Pearly Gates); and harpist/composer Nailah Hunter.
They were drawn together during the pandemic to remotely create collaborative music reflecting this unique and uncertain moment in history. Hunter describes the group’s dynamic: “Each member of the group provides a unique sonic lens with which to view the realms beyond this world. Each member’s music recalls the sound of organic life in a different way.”
Ardizoni continues, “Well, we are going through some extremely difficult times, so there is no way that this project has not been influenced by that. I find that with writing music during difficult times, you don’t really become aware, sonically, of the impact of that time until you listen to it way down the road. Writing this kind of music has always been a means of transmuting my pain into joy so that the listener can experience that by proxy.”
With so much talent on this record it couldn’t possibly fail to be anything but amazing. If you’re looking for a vibe to soothe the soul than Galdre Visions have just what you need.
