These songs were recorded from their 2016 west coast spring tour. It is a compilation of the best songs from 5 different shows and correlates with a live DVD/BluRay release of these performances. Sonically stunning, the recordings capture the ecstatic energy that this group consistently delivers. It also features the spacious opening for sweet devotion that pours through these two. And absolute must have for those lovers of chant, heart songs and healing connection with the divine.

"What a gift these live albums are.. with the musical engineering supporting the energy and spirit! These selections evoke strong memories of group celebration and are truly life-affirming. I am listening to these at the end of a 7 day retreat filled with very hard spiritual work. So much appreciated. Namaste..." Marc Worthington (Fan)
