Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters, Wallflowers) and Jessy Greene (P!nk, Wallflowers, Wilco) have released Chakras Lumina, an album of ambient music for healing and mental health, the proceeds of which benefits MusiCares. Working with such major acts for many years brought both musicians to the conclusion that music has healing power, leading to this project.
Jessy Greene explains:
Music lifts our spirits, opens our hearts and harmonizes our body’s systems. The right music and sounds can completely revitalize us, helping us to relax, heal and rejuvenate. While both Rami and I have been extremely blessed with our musical careers, we have also had a lot of difficulties and challenges on and off the road. We began to create music to help us relax and sleep, in lieu of drug and alcohol alternatives. We found it also helps to escape the constant chatter of the mind and with general well being.
This led to the development of a unique approach to sound healing using traditional string instruments with specially tuned machines, synthesizers and effects, combined with powerful intentions to create a variety of flow states and assistance for healing and recovery.
We are now donating all proceeds from our upcoming release “Chakras Lumina” to benefit the mental health support that is being offered by MusiCares. We are also performing small ambient sound bath concerts locally. We both find deep joy in creating space for healing, turning down the volume and tuning into the sound waves of energy that eternally connect us.
