about

Seasonal Séance is a rekindling of seasonal awareness & celebration through sonic folk craft in the Southeastern United States. Herein are personal and collective interpretations of timely folk songs, sonic evocations of ancient rites, calls for cultivation and growth, communications with the spirits of the season, holiday music for astronomical observances. The first volume is a collection of music made for the beginning of Spring on the occasion of the Vernal Equinox. Throw your windows wide and let it pour over the plants and planets all around you!

The Seasonal Séance series will continue with volumes being released on each equinox & solstice this year, providing the soundtrack to your own seasonal rites and gatherings. Stay tuned!

Limited edition tape forthcoming!

Cuckoo, as I me walked
In the May morning
I heard a bird sing

Pulling from the flowing found
Rushing bubbling dripping down
Drawn in shadow drawn in light
Cabinet delighting my heart

Jahypýi ko yvy tome’ê hi’a

A cultivar,
que renazca en la tierra el amor
que maduren las mieses al sol
que haya campos de blanco algodón

A cultivar,
que en los sueños florezca el ideal
que haya el día de la redención:
elevar la nación.

THE SOWN LAND (ÑEMITŶ)
Translation into English: Víctor L. Spezzini

Let’s water the land so it may fruit
Let our cries unite
through the wind may we hear
the voice that sings from our sown land.

During the rosy sunrise many birds sing
not a single malaise exists
the sun shines, the moon laughs
the poor are liberated.

Let’s cultivate
may joy germinate across the land
may the sun warm the cornfield
may the butterfly cover it all in cotton.

Let’s cultivate
to brighten our flowering dream
may the people’s day arrive
may Paraguay arise.

Tobacco and yerba mate,
peanuts and fruits
from the value of someone’s sweat
In the cane fields many of the poor
get to eat.

Let the hunger end
may the love be germinated,
may our homeland rise up
Let’s unite
and shout
with joy my people.

Let’s cultivate,
in the land may the love be reborn
let the grain be matured by the sun
let there be fields full of white cotton

Let’s cultivate,
that in our dreams the ideal may flower
that the day of emancipation shall arrive:
uplift this nation.

Now all the woods are waking,
The sun is rising high
Wake up now
Get up now
Before the dew is dry
