From Celestial Folk Music liner notes:
“A Musical Cultural Astronomical tapestry, woven with myths of the stars and music & rhythms from the Ancestors. This collection of songs is also a collection of stories and teachings. As you listen with your heart, you will see in your mind. Inner joy will be experienced as you dance and sway into your transformation. The Original People of the Four Directions all share a love of life on Earth as well as a Mystical and deeply profound connection to the Heavens, the Milky Way Galaxy and the Dogstar, the Sirius Star System.” Tchiya Amet El Maat
Tchiya Amet Transitions From Reggae Into A World Music Maven
January 14 2014
About Black Turtle Island
Continuing in a style that began with her debut CD: “Rise Again Truth”, firmly rooted in the Roots Reggae Tradition, the music of Tchiya Amet is a blend of Indigenous and Contemporary cultures and rhythms. This music keeps the culture, myths, legends and rhythms of the Ancestors alive.This music carries the wisdom and the teachings of the Elders forward into the future, by reaching out to the youth of today.
“Black Turtle Island” seeks to express the voice of a nation denied the most basic of human rights, time and time again: the right to self-determination, even the right to exist.
The existence of Indigenous Black Indians of Turtle Island is a controversial topic in Indian Country today. Nevertheless, we continue to exist, and we continue to make music.
With remnants of Ancient Traditions, Tchiya Amet has crafted a colorful cultural quilt, to provide warmth and comfort to the Indigenous peoples of the 4 Directions during these trying times.
OTHER RHYTHMS INCLUDE: AFRO-CUBAN, AFRO-POP, DOO-WOP, SKA, SADE, NATIVE CHANTS AND BEYOND…
“Keeper of the Dream”
Tchiya is a “Keeper of the Dream”. The healing energy of her life is illuminating her music. Her natural singing
voice & lyrics embody the spirit of beauty and variety as well as metamorphosis of rebirth, love & hope. The lion is
her ally. Tchiya embraces the lion and learns to balance power, intention and strength with the feline grace and majesty.
Her heartfelt change is transformational, leading the way to rebirth and clarity – that we are all related to one
Guided by the Sun and the Stars, this sister reminds us that the Sun is the prime source of light and heat for Planet Earth, and combined with rain it brings forth and sustains life. Tchiya is combining her gifts in music and science: healing & awareness with Sound; performing music that is inspired by the Ancient Wisdom which is to be found in Cultural Astronomy: the Traditional and Contemporary Celestial Worldviews of Indigenous Peoples of the Four Directions, and also in acutonics, with the Music of the Spheres.
Tchiya also shares the Teachings of the Four Directions, including Bhagavad Gita, the Lotus Sutra, The Kybalion,
the Kabala, Cherokee Legends, Lakota Sundance, & Maat from Kemet.
She is reaching out to a wider audience the more universal her music becomes–expounding the Universal Truth,
the Law of Life.
Tchiya, warm like the light of the sun and the heart of a lion, is Born to Rule. Her recordings are dedicated to the
Great Universe who opened the path to her higher Self.
Each song is a prayer…
