Centaurus A is the a.k.a. of the new Leo Dorantes project. The name comes from the galaxy NGC 5128 (Centauri´s constelation). Experimentation with native sounds from all continents, including ethnic, religious, spiritual and prehispanic influences from several cultures around the world gives life to this project. Rescuing and spreading the trascendental musical tradition to fuse it with downtempo deep rhythms all along with vanguard psychedelic elements that gets you into a real state of ceremonial trance. Through music he shows the transcendence of the sounds that our ancestors used to reach a higher state of awareness and pay tribute to the gods; a real spirit manifestation.
This track came to life because of the sounds that have a psychological and spiritual power in certain cultures: the mantras.
Man - Mind
Tra - Instrument
This particular instrument of mind is called "Aasatoma sad Magaya" and gave me the inspiration to reach illumination.
Drive us trough the asat to the sat
Drive us trough the dark to the light
Drive us trough death to immortality
When you dance, you are practicing active meditation, and if you listen to this powerful sounds on the dancefloor, it may help you reach illumination in the subconscious.
