We have to connect from heart to heart to create a living web of light and love in order to create paradise on earth. The first step however is to connect our heart to the heart of mother nature.
This simple melody was inspired through Michael Stillwater. Wani means „Heart“ and for me this was a prayer to the heart of mother nature. The idea of a spoken meditation within a song developed and along these lines the second melody for the lyrics of “Hey niketi hey wana”, meaning „Hey brother/sister we all are connected through the heart“. The nature atmosphere was recorded by my brother in the fields around our family home south of Munich. With a great length of concert harp with endless variety this is yet another feature of Kiko Pedrozo.
Hey Wani Wani Wani Hey Yo Hey Yo-o
Hey Niketi Hey Wana Asse Wana Hey Wana
Spoken word meditation:
This is a love song for mother earth. “Wanna waki”, it‘s time for coming home. Imagine your favorite place in nature. Maybe it‘s a memory from your childhood. A place where you and your family used to spend your holidays. Maybe it‘s a place where you go today when you need to relax and recharge. Visualize this place now with as many details as
possible. Are you sitting there, standing or lying there? What does the ground beneath you feel like? Is a slight breeze going? Can you feel wind in your face? Maybe the sun is shining, how is the temperature, try to hear everything around you. Do you have a river by your side or the ocean shore? Can you hear animals calling, insects buzzing, birds singing? Try to see as far as possible. The earth, the sand, the grass, the trees, the sky, the clouds. What would this place taste like? Can you smell the herbs and flowers? Give love and respect to all people on this planet. For we are all the same people, everyone has a heart in their chest. Give love and respect to all people of all colors, all people of all nations and creeds, for we are one people, through the heart we unite. With every breath you take, you feel more and more that all the beauty around you is natures way of saying: I love you. Unfolding, evolving. Now send all your love to the heart of mother nature and to all of creation around you. Wait, and feel the love, coming back to you.
