1. TOGETHER (4:49) • by Shambhu

The opener exudes joy, inviting us to join a journey already unfolding. The ecstatic nature of the music is engaging, floating, soaring, diving, and reviving. From start to finish, “Together” is a unifying joy ride that resonates a relaxed, shining optimism and willful intention for good. “Together” is about one family, one community, one world: the hope and the dream. Setting the tone for what’s to come, the soaring wind synth and violin draw a calming emotional picture of release and letting go.

“All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.” ~Swami Vivekenanda
