Na Bonsai announces her 3/12/23 release of a lush two-track EP, Alkhemy that takes the listener through an aural journey of inner transformation.
Alkhemy is a future soul/fusion composition, conceptually intended to illuminate our collective ability to transform our emotions and liberate ourselves.
The first song, Black As Lead, is about fearlessly shedding our past selves in order to make room for new energy. Followed by Closer To The Sun, a song about completing cycles by returning to our original selves and oneness. Pre-order the music on bandcamp now (including a bonus track, Returning)
Na composed, arranged and co-produced the music on Alkhemy, and plans to premiere it in live performance this spring. The record has contributions from bassist and mixing engineer Haruki Hakoyama, drummer Todd Watts, keyboardist Barry Chambliss, and string-arranger Pirahnahead, among others.
