Liner Notes: Venustribes are a unique blend in the midst of the ethereal wave. Fusing world beat, jazz and songwriting craft this project falls out of any existing genre. Concept album Siddhartha was infused by James Lovelock’s ‘Gaia principle’; based on the theory of Earth or Gaia and all it’s inhabitants being one self-regulating system, maintaining the conditions for life on the planet. The title Siddhartha was inspired by Hermann Hesse’s mystical novel describing a traveller’s sacred journey. Siddhartha is dedicated to the INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF 13 INDIGENOUS GRANDMOTHERS. To the Kogi Mamas of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta - Gonavindua Tairona Elder Brothers and GUARDIANS OF WATER. Dedicated to Chief RAONI, Chief of the Xingu Indigenous Lands of Brazil.
