about

Utilizing a hybrid of organic percussion, the alternate mode trapKAT (custom electronic drum setup), xylophones and a unique rhythmic dialogue, Gina Ferrera weaves her tale: "Laws of Nature". Breathtaking in its sonic range and richly evocative in content, the album seamlessly bridges the ancient and the contemporary, unfolding a world of contrasts and textures that reveals multiple new layers with each listening.

"Laws of Nature" is a stimulating experience that crosses the spiritual with the sensual to the pure essence of sound. It’s at once a highly intimate statement yet one that crashes through boundaries and speaks to anyone whose path it crosses.

Track Name: Fortune Pick
Chant:
"Picking up my fortune,
now
put it in my pocket"
Track Name: Take the Bull by the Horns- (Kariga Mombe)
"It's going to be alright!"
Track Name: These Petals
Yearning sought the highland.
Heartbreak sought the plain.
I was caught somewhere
Floating in between.
"Gi,
Passing through the city won't you...
Weave that tale back to me."
From city plots to gates where gardens' locked.
The waterfalls, the forest floors.
I'm sifting through your hemisphere.
Just to hear this song.
The misty lane
On which you drive upon
The muddy pool you chose to dive
Into
forgiving
Is
this
black hole of time.

Waiting for the sun to split us open.
Waiting for the sun to split us open
waiting for the sun.
waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun to split us open.

These boots wiped off from dusty pages
Yesterday's prescription
left
untaken
still
Waiting for the sun to split us open. (4x)

Lifting up these petals, peachy
push pops, salty tear drops
All collide
a drop that drips
like sap that hits
these roots in grounds that shoot down,
Grip tight the tool you use to move
and pry
to prop them open.
Arms stretched out to
Arms stretched out to
wait wait wait

Waiting for the sun to split us open.
Waiting for the sun to split us open.
waiting for the sun
waiting for the sun
waiting for the sun to split us open.
Track Name: Chemical Reaction
"By creative manifestation
biochemical attraction
we're an astral happenstance
a lotus that blossoms and seeds.

Cosmic fantasy
as real as gravity.
We exist
Let's meet,
We're an astral happenstance,
a lotus that blossoms and seeds.

we meet again
Feel me, again.
See me, Again.
We meet.
It's a chemical reaction.

The wind of spirit engulfs us like a twister.
But we remain the epicenter.
we are TIMELESS
and space does not separate us,
space does not separate us.

By creative manifestation
or a bio chemical attraction.
an astral happenstance.
lotus flower
blossom and seed
cosmic fantasy
as real as gravity
we exist.

we meet again,
feel me again,
see me again,
we meet-
it's a chemical reaction.

Tho I know you're no good for me,
damn baby we got chemistry.
You're no good for me
we got chemistry
Oh AH

Two lights that coalesce
and dance in collaboration
a natural phenomenon
a healthy attraction
the thought of you ignites a chemical reaction.
transform energy, entrain you with me.
Simultaneously still-----
and stimulated
with nowhere else to be but HERE NOW (WE)...
HERE NOW (just WE)

by creative manifestation
or bio chemical attraction
astral happenstance
lotus flower,
oh blossom and seed
cosmic fantasy
as real as gravity,
we exist...

we meet again,
feel me again,
see me again,
we meet.
-it's a chemical reaction".
Track Name: Moving Sea Between
Love!
Will you calm the moving sea
between the shores of our love?
Will you let the words come out?
Will you calm the moving sea
between the shores of our love?
Tempt me with your mystery love!
I don't know what's inside in your head.
LOVE.
Will you let the words come out?
Will you calm the moving sea
between the shores of our love?
Or I can keep on waiting waiting.
Track Name: Mandoline (Tuck Away)
Your soul and light paints green circles in my stomach
You fill me up with joy and orgasms in my mouth
You put orgasms in my mouth.

I don't apologize for my curiosity
Artistic amplifier magnetized by your elusive dream.
A portal of sweet tones and lights that make me spin around and around.

Like a humble deviant you have the moon, I have the sky.
I'm a broken song, but you can tune my energy up right.
Should I ask another question
or just give you more of what I've got?

I'll tuck away my secret stories till it's safe to let them drop...

Oh tuck it away
tuck it away tuck it away tuck it away
tuck it away.
Oh blow it away
blow it away blow it away blow it away
blow it away.

I'm drowning in an ocean of memory, my third eye unveiling.
I'm poetic justice unfathomed and suddenly becoming.
I'm haunted by our magic story
it's suddenly unfolding...

I don't apologize for my curiosity.
I'm a hologram like you a force of nature it's alluring.
I'm undone, I want to come
I'm here I'm spinning around and around.

Your words they carry me through open fields until the morning dawn.
I want to curl into a teeny sphere and pop out in a song.
Should I ask another question
or just give you more of what I've got?

I'll tuck away my secret stories till it's safe to let them drop...

Oh tuck it away
tuck it away tuck it away tuck it away
tuck it away.
Oh blow it away
blow it away blow it away blow it away
blow it away.
Track Name: Forbidden Fruit (pasos por Obatala)
You may like what you see,
but it's trouble going nowhere.
NEVER, (not necessarily!?!)
but that's the way it's got to be.

Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh

Look don't touch oh
Look don't touch it

Ale that flows like water.
BEHOLD your "fallen nature"
No means NO young sapling.
Please don't make assumptions

Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh

Look don't touch oh
Look don't touch it!

Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh
Track Name: Meet Me in the Middle
Couldn't stand the tune, so they killed the minstrel.
Couldn't stand the message, so they hung the messenger.
Vilified
kissing this,
space goodnight.
space goodnight.
vilified,
kissing this,
space goodnight.
space goodnight.

headway to
hollow earth
two poles
that load the vaults
hollowing
underground
memory
shows you how
to
meet me in the middle
meet me in the middle...

To control information is to control the population.
The dissemination of information steers the population.
Desired point...
control control.
Destroying all
at all cost.
Desired point,
control, control.
Kissing this
space goodnight.
Kissing this

Track Name: Stay Awhile
Won't be so complicated if you stay awhile
stay awhile

We were "Straight up" from the start
and what an entrance you made tonight
No complications- it was EASY!
Near darkness and my light was on.
Minding my own business,
making my way home.
When I landed I was shocked to find you there.
Your stance caught my attention,
you were perched upon my high throne.
with no complications, simple.
like the breeze, boy!
A warm and cozy creature won't you
come in, come in, come in
and stay awhile!

Won't be so complicated if you stay a while!
stay awhile

Tangled in your own hair
and the thickness of my mattress where you lie.
Dear prince upon my pillow.
But don't mind if I step outside
I need that fresh breath air.
Suspend a little ride upon the winds that tore our furs off.
When no lightning and no thunder and no rain came.
Just your silent swagger
just before we take a bow now?
when the show stops & the blinds shut.
keep my eyes wide open
for
you
to prance upon me gently
and just stay awhile
stay uncomplicated
come in ,come in
and stay a while
