TUNE Jane Walker - Walk Gently On The Earth
A call to care for the environment and ourselves, featuring Sanskrit chanting, a portion of sales from this song goes to Ocean Recovery Alliance which focuses on improving the ocean environment and finding solutions for plastic pollution.
Written and co-produced by Jane and produced by Barbara Griffin, the recording features Stu Hunter on Wurlitzer, Middle Eastern percussion by Giosofatto ‘Jess’ Ciampa, and Indian Dilruba & Tambora by Dwaipayana who also leads the Sanskrit chanting. Drums by Hamish Stuart, bass by James Haselwood, with keys and programming by Barbara Griffin, this track was mixed by David Hemming in Sydney and mastered at Sterling Sound, NYC.
The Sanskrit verses on the song are from Sri Isopanisad. A simple translation is that we are all connected to the divine, and the world has enough for everyone if we take our share or quota and no more. If we are not greedy, we have an abundant universe!
The video will be screened at the Ocean Film Festival in Singapore Feb 26 and in Hong Kong on April 9 2013. It is edited by 13yo environmental campaigner, Frankie Bouchier. It features images of plastic pollution from around the world with images of pristine Australian wilderness, donated from Ocean Recovery Alliance, Tangaroa Blue Foundation: Australian Marine Debris Initiative and Richard Green Photography and includes the footsteps of His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
