Liquid Bloom is a downtempo project founded by Amani Friend of Desert Dwellers. Spurred by a lifetime of travel and immersion into the worlds of organic sounds and ceremonial instrumentation. Founded in 2001 to explore how music can induce theta brainwave trance states, Liquid Bloom has evolved into a multifaceted collaboration project involving traditional world music artists like Poranguî, Deya Dova, and Ixchel Prisma, and cutting edge producers and remixers from across the globe.
