New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
A soft glow appears in the Eastern sky at the end of a night of the Northern Lights, Aurora
Borealis, marking the new dawn. That special moment is captured in Auroral Magic, an innovative new album of piano, vocals, chant, and chill, with a touch of guitar and strings by Chakuna Machi Asa, an artist-producer and multi-instrumentalist who also specializes in crystals and sound healing. Auroral Magic and its official music video released worldwide today in CD, digital and streaming formats, debuting in Amazon's Top 20 bestselling new releases in New Age music.
In this new work, her third full album of healing music, Chakuna taps into her gifts to bridge the gap between modern culture and the ancient ancestors, and shares it with all to inspire personal transformation. Listeners of Auroral Magic will hear Chakuna's talent as both a vocalist and peaceful nature sounds; her prayer to the ancestors, cantillating Elven spirits, a dream voyage to a distant planet, and in the track "The Wind
" (6:40), she brings together the sound of wind chimes, piano, synthesizer winds, vocal sounds, and breath. "Time Womb" (5:45) has a complicated and thought inspiring title, with piano and strings, the synthesizer swells within; gestation is a long slow process, the mother gives her love and light as she nurtures the growing new life. "Our Escape" (7:46) features a piano at the foundation, accompanied by a synthesizer, very delicate, with vocal growls and low intonations, an adventure traversing unknown places of danger and uncertainty, she explains, "we can evolve, or rather escape from our collective suffering." The title track closes the Norse-inspired album, "Auroral Magic" (4:51), with full synthesizers, bells, wind chimes, piano, sometimes shimmering, a haunting melody, one might think of sparkling crystals, the dawn, and a new beginning.
"Throughout her recordings and live performances, she has artfully incorporated indie, folk, sound healing, chakra music, ambient music and relaxing piano music," wrote Jonathan Widran in JWVibe. "In creating her latest masterwork Auroral Magic, Chakuna Machi Asa draws upon many of these influences while tapping into a profound sense of connection to her cherished Nordic/Scandinavian ancestry. One of the planet's greatest natural phenomena, the Northern Lights
fit in perfectly with the theme that developed over the course of the album, which she realized was her attempt to use music as a way to get in touch with her own lineage."
Chakuna released her first album, Activation Sounds: Ancient Chakra Healing Chants in 2013, and Moon Eye: Ancient Healing Sounds
in 2014, followed by a single, Pachamama in 2015, and in 2021, an EP with three tracks, The Gift, followed by a single, Ambient Meditation. She has been featured by The Shift Network, The Heart
of the Healer, and Shamans Market, and is currently a double nominee in the retailer-selected COVR Awards, in the Iconic Music
and Stone Jewelry categories.
In an artist interview with Chakuna, she expands upon her song craft to music journalist Robin
James, sharing, "My intention as an artist is to help open you up to a new experience of the multidimensional reality of human existence. I always set my intention that any songs I create are healing for the listener. Overall, I am striving to evoke or call upon a more peaceful vibe in your mind, body, heart and soul."
