Although Byron Mtecalf has been working on The Shaman’s Heart for almost two years, in a very real sense this project represents his entire life’s journey and overriding quest: to develop the ability to live in the world and remain heart-centered — to stay connected to one’s compassionate core — no matter what the circumstances may be. Along with his music, Byron has chosen the shamanic path, ‘the path with heart ‘ as don Juan referred to it, as a primary method to accomplish this most challenging and rewarding goal.

The Shaman’s Heart is a powerful and unique rhythmic and soundworlds trance experience based on the traditional structures of shamanic drumming. The entire journey is built using a collection of buffalo drums, frame drums and rattles, presented as a continuous unfolding rhythmic state starting with lone peyote rattles and eventually evolving into a mandala-like polyrhythmic ecstacy. Fellow traveller, friend and collaborator Steve Roach is also on-board, providing a shapeshifting undercurrent of essential soundworlds and didgeridoo provided to create a balanced sense of support for the intrepid inner traveler. Adding to the experience is the sense that it’s all occurring in a grounded, ceremonial space through the use of sounds from the natural world. This is unlike any of the solo projects or collaborations from Byron and Steve. A perfect example of the notion that ‘the music is the medicine. ‘
