A 20 Year Adventure
With the world in more and more desperate trouble, with wars and hatred and global climate change, are we humans courting distaster, is Armageddon calling us?
In this troubled time when so many people are issuing a call to arms, we strive instead for peace by issuing a call to beauty -- to remind everyone of the beauty of this world, the beauty of its people, and the beauty of its many different cultures.
This wonderful live album was recorded at the Forest Inn, a large Victorian ballroom in Forest Glen, Maryland. It is the first release to include new KIVA member David Landis and the return of Diana McFadden. It also features the fantastic vocals of Amikaeyla Gaston, longtime KIVA alumni Nicole Cooley in an unusual arrangement of the traditional song "Twa Corbies", and award winning harpist Olvardil Prydwyn on harp (on "The Basin") and cittern (on "Twa Corbies"). This CD was nominated for DC's Whammie Award for "Best New Age Album". Click here for more information on our live CD.
A passionate album, it reminds us of humanity's inter-connectedness with the earth. The songs and chants help us find our wholeness in nature, the elements and seasons. It features award winning Celtic harpist Sue Richards, and percussionist Robin Burdulis and Barbara McPherson, and Kathleen Hannan (Singer-Songwriter of the Year Award winner in North Carolina) playing piano. This CD was nominated for DC's Whammie Award 2 years in a row!
The twelve voices of "the Chorus of Powerful Women" invite you to experience the Goddess with original and traditional chants and songs from Africa, Tibet, Greece, India, and North and South America. Mother Wisdom connects us to the ancient mother and keeps the Goddess tradition alive.

The musicians are inspired by myriad forms and traditions, and this album showcases their instrumental range as never before, highlighting individual KIVA members and friends such as Robin Burdulis and Barbara McPherson.
