Call of Engai is a song that draws heavily from Maasai traditional music. It is a track that begins with slow and steady beats that grow gradually faster and more emphatic while various flourishes like drum and rattle tremolos, flutes and accented patterns add variety. This track probes the levels of inner consciousness and sensory awareness is heightened varying in degrees from very light to excessively deep.
The making of this song is inspired by the epistemological narratives of our spiritual existence and the mystical variables that inform that reality. It is posited that the source of true music and the source of true spiritualism will always remain the same, and that source is a cry, a birthless and deathless cry; an eternal hunger. It is a hunger not for one’s own gratification, but for God’s satisfaction in God’s own way. Thus, when music and spiritualism are derived from this source, only then can the message and beauty of music and the message and beauty of spiritualism be divinely illumining and fulfilling. Call of Engai is an exemplar of this.
