SimbaSōl proposes an emotional ballad conceived to land on whatever journey the listener is on and set the table for what is to come.

In Buddhism, Saṃsāra is often defined as the endless cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. In literal terms, the Sanskrit word saṃsāra means “to flow” or “to pass through”. My current focus is on the micro level of deaths and rebirths that occur within the artist every hour of every day.

The entire album manages to provide introspection, absorbing energy and twilight light, and that closes a record that knows how to turn musical pulp into a refreshing ambrosia juice.

All those languages and influences from which he drew dialogue on this record, creating new, different and highly evolved sound organisms.
