"As she advances in her musical vocation without paying attention to conventionalisms, this woman has succeeded in shaping a very personal, direct style, which attracts the attention of the listener very easily indeed."
JORGE MUNNSHE - https://www.tradebit.com

Earth Songs ~ Emily Burridge''s first production was released in 1994 and has now been re-mastered and released on the artist''s own label: White Horse World Music.

The energetic source for the music was a journey made by Emily to the Mato Grosso Forest and the Amazon Forest of Brazil. Staying in a vast raw natural environment, bathing in waterfalls at dawn, such experiences fed her senses in such a way that on returning to England she was inspired to convert these memories to sound and commenced writing lyrics which reflect experiences of this time.
Staying in such nature devoid of your customary comforts and securities, your perspective shifts an experience that North American Indians call a vision quest.

Emily combines her mellow ''cello and singing with classical harmonies and percussion, tribal chant and ethnic instruments.

Jody Linscott plays drums and ethnic percussion on "Listen to the Kogi Speak" and "Running Man".
Shozo Nagao plays didgeridoo on "Running Man" and "Waking Freedom".
Davi Kopenawa Yanomami recites the Yanomami myth for creation on Yanomami.

Lyrics by Emily Burridge

"Running Man"

We are Rock, Stone, Feather
Snowflake, Crystal, Tree
Earth, Sky, Moon,
River, Water, Sea.
Running Man, Running Man.
There is laughing, there is crying
Running man
There is fighting, they are starving
Running Man
There is darkness, there is shadow,
Running Man
Look for light, there is love
Running man.
Look for love there is light Running man
Running man Running Man.

"Listen to the Kogi Speak" features recordings of the Kogi Indians of Columbia. The song commences with the Kogi myth for creation set to music:

In the beginning there was blackness
Only the Sea.
In the beginning, there was no sun, no moon, no people.
In the beginning there were no animals, no plants, only the Sea.
The Sea was the Mother
The Mother was not people
She was not anything, nothing at all.
She was, when she was, darkly
She was memory and potential
She was....Aluna.
The lyrics of the song are as follows:

They come from a mountain,
These mystical people
Listen to the words they speak,
A message of wonder, a message of warning
Listen to the Kogi speak
Aware of Earth''s torture, our imminent danger
Listen to the Kogi speak.
Reach out mountain high,
Feel her, love her
Can you see her, free her, feel her love her,
Be as one.
Mountain high reaches https://www.tradebit.com help us,
They feel https://www.tradebit.comntain high reaching out
They come from a mountain,
These mystical people,
A message to the world they give
Unlimited wisdom, unfathomable reason
Listen to the words they speak.
Listen to the breathing of the wind
Against your heart.
A question of time, we''ve drawn the line
Listen to the Kogi speak.

"Colours of the Dawning" reflects a spiritual re-birth.
Whispers to the night
Colour of the Dawning, White Light
Soul changes, wandering
Turn the pages
Holding true in these times
Colours of the Dawning we recognise
White light - the interplay within our lives."

In 1992 Emily was invited to perform this music at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was at one of her performances that Emily was first introduced to tribal people from Brazil. In particular the Xavante Tribe who are indigenous to the Mato Grosso. Fascinated by her music, they invited Emily to visit their village. Which she did - two years later.
The Earth Summit also hosted the Tribal Gathering. This event attracted tribal people from all over the world and gave them a platform to share and demonstrate their traditional culture as well as voice their opinions over various environmental issues.
Subsequent to her performances Emily was invited to stay at this event and record the traditional songs and rituals.
"Vozes da Terra" - Voices of the Earth is compiled from edits of recordings made during this time.

"Yanomami" features recordings made of Yanomami Shamans practising the sacred Charborie ritual. The song commences with a speech in indigenous language made by Davi Yanomami a spiritual leader of this tribe.
Witnessing the Yanomami inspired the lyrics:

Yanomami we hear your call,
Yanomami we share your dream
One heart, one mind, Don''t give up
We will unite.
They come from the forest
After thousand of years
The rivers, the mountains,
Echo their fears.
The birds flee the region,
The land turns to dust. There''s Gold on their land-
It''s the World Bank''s lust
Yanomami we hear your call,
Don''t give up - we will unite
Yanomami, Yanomami, oh Yanomami.

"Echoes of the Forest"
Woke up talking of a dream my friends,
The feathered man calls for the forest could end.
And looking out it breaks my heart for the forest smokes and the people
It breathes our life and it feeds our home,
Look to the people of the forest alone.
Woke up talking of a dream my friends!

"Waking Freedom" which commences the CD is a celebration and recognition of the incredible experiences that initiated the music and songs of the "Earth Song" production:
"Freedom is free for those who choose
Questions of time, no time to loose
Working wonders in wondrous ways,
Walking https://www.tradebit.coming Freedom."
