Golden Dawn Arkestra hails from a small planet in the constellation Cygnus, light-years away in the outermost reaches of the galaxy. The Arkestra conducts experiments involving space and time travel through the use of sound and movement. Their followers delight in these rituals; all bear witness to their higher selves and joyously bask in the eternal light that joins us all as one.
Armed with unique instrumentation that includes horns, percussion, synthesizers, vibraphone and bass clarinet, Golden Dawn Arkestra combines deep grooves with cinematic textures. The theatric visuals of The Arkestra are enriched further by appearances from various dancers who, like the musicians, are adorned in shimmering garments reminiscent of intergalactic kingdoms of yore. Inspired to exuberance by ritualistic practices such as processions, chanting, and the power of the music itself, the audience falls into spellbound frenzies.
The Golden Dawn Arkestra returns from ions of spacetime travel to serve humankinds with expansive sound, a message of ecstatic consciousness, and joy that drifts upon ever-loving rays of RA.
