about

A new song ! Inspired by a Russian folktale; The Snow Maiden's Song was written as part of a collaborative & multidisciplinary arts release organized by MDS Gallery (Lena Moro).

The Classic Mythological Story, well known in Russian Culture, takes place in an enchanted forest during a period of many years of winter - and is about a girl created from snow made with Love from father winter & mother spring - As she becomes a woman, she desires to know romantic love and thinks she’s found it from a boy who plays songs on a flute but alas he plays his songs for everyone & flirts with all the women of the village - another man falls in love with her and betrays his betrothed and everything he knows to be with her - she chooses him eventually as well, but as they are about to be together, the sun god shines after many years & ends the long winter & the snow maiden melts and then her would be lover drowns himself in a lake to be with her, as water forever !

Check out my lyrical & emotive interpretation of this folklore as a song !

As always I completely submersed myself in the creative process, and as I release it today I feel like I've lived a lifetime in the creation & journey of this song's production from start to finish in about a month. It always starts with just an idea ;) a few words floating around, a few "maybe" melodies ...a lot of doubt and letting go, ( repeat that a few times) and suddenly a song begins to feel like it is one, a song, like it "was always meant to be", and then the real fun comes in; harmonies and accompaniments as layers of color and texture, expanding space in stereo, guiding me to what it wants to be and finally becomes... my frequencies of love.

lyrics

The Snow Maiden's Song

FROZEN in Place
I’ve Chosen my FATE
To Run with What Gives me HOPE I Can
LIGHT UP from WITHIN

FLOAT in this MOMENT
We try to HOLD ON TIGHT
EMBRACE the Longest Nights

Our LOVE is like a SONG
You CAN'T GRAB ON to the MUSIC
But it will MOVE YOU ALONG

Like the Wind Carries a Flame
The Fires Not to Blame for Reclaiming What it Always was

Every Snowflake's a Frozen Tear in Time
But NOT to FEAR
I AM THE WATER
And I Run Where the Melody Calls
For Raindrops HOLDING SUN

Winter Becomes Spring Only Once we've Forgotten
We are One with EVERYONE
So We Can Renew Again Find What BLOOMS Within
Remembering What MELTS OUR FROZEN HEARTS into Water
To GARDEN EACH OTHER
The AUDACITY to SHINE and SHOW the WAY

I’ve Chosen my FATE
We try to HOLD ON TIGHT
EMBRACE the Longest Nights

LOVE is like a SONG
You Can't Grab on to the MUSIC
But it will MOVE YOU ALONG

Every Snowflake's a Frozen Tear in Time
But NOT to FEAR
I AM THE WATER
And I Run Where the Melody Falls
as SNOWFLAKES in the SUN

We Are One
The SONG OF LOVE Carried on by Everyone
With a Spring in their Step
All the TEARS we've WEPT
Turning Snowflakes into RAINDROPS in the Sun
Just For a Moment
RAINBOWS
From the Snowflakes Kissed by Sun
