In the ancient Egyptian language, the term "Ba" represents the container for our spirit/souls (which the Egyptians named to be our "ka").

The term "Akhu" represents the existence of our ka when removing the ba, which is the container that limits our power (in our case, we are limited to 5 senses through our current containers). To reach Akhu is a metaphysical thought in which we can exist along with everything and escape from our self to be a part of a bigger picture.

The music I will be presenting is original music (both sets will contain different music) and are attempts to connect to a higher spirit by growing through experiences or by practicing empathy. I hope to help open and connect people through this artistic experience.
