Western European musicians Nick Barbachano and Danit Treubig both followed individual paths that immersed them in indigenous traditional healing cultures in North and South America. Their lives and music are an expression of the people they have connected with in these cultures and what they have gained in vision and gratitude for life. They travel around the world performing traditional ceremonial music and also their own songs, to perpetuate traditional healing ceremonies.
Here, they describe the paths they took, what this has come to mean for them, and they each introduce two songs they wrote and recorded.
