MP3 - 01 Espiritu - Single Track from Torch Songs by Susannah Darling Khan

Espiritu, is the first song our land taught me.... It's a song that is made in honour of the particular place we live. I hope it will resonate with you and where you live! We live on the edge of Dartmoor, which was once a great oak forest, which was cut down to build the ships which invaded and conquered much of the world.... So this song is in honour of the trees; those that stand and those that stood, the rain and the streams, the mountain (Tor) on whose slopes we live: Ugborough Beacon, and the sun and the winds.. . 10% of the proceeds from this album go to the Pachamama Alliance to anchor this prayer in action. Ya'Acov says: “I am so proud to announce the release of Susannah’s latest album – Torch Songs: For these Turning Times. This album is a powerful invocation for us all to take courage and stand up for life on earth. Each song is a jewel. I love the musicality, the message and the magnificent medicine that this new album is offering into the world at a time when we all need to dance like dervishes and raise our voices for what we care for."”

MP3 - 07 Water and Stars - Single Track from Torch Songs by Susannah Darling Khan
This song, for the waters, is based on the beautiful traditional Jewish melody of "Hashi Venu". Over the years this song has evolved in words, often sung during our Movement Medicine lodges... This version kind of produced itself into this "of water and stars" version, which I love. Its one of the most stilling, calming tracks I've ever made. 10% of the proceeds from this song go to the Pachamama Alliance to anchor this prayer in action. Enjoy!

MP3 - 08 Let Her Go - Single Track from Torch Songs by Susannah Darling Khan
‘Let Her Go’ is the first song I ever wrote when I was 23. I didn’t know what or who this song was about until, 30 years later, by my mother’s side in the hospice I understood; it was for her and for us in letting her go. The last words I spoke to her before she died were about how proud I am to be her daughter, and how I stand tall in her lineage. Thank you for how you lived and how you died, and for giving me life. Thank you for giving me life. 10% of the proceeds from this song will go to the Pachamama Alliance to anchor this prayer in action. And a huge thank you to Sarah Patterson and your love and spiritual support throughout this process, and for the illumination of your voice on this track.

MP3 - 09 Fly Free - Single Track from Torch Songs by Susannah Darling Khan
"Fly Free" is the music without the words of ‘Let Her Go’. I love this song so much, and the words of ‘Let Her Go’ are so strong and so specific that I wanted a version that was more open in its meaning. 10% of the proceeds from this song will go to the Pachamama Alliance to anchor this prayer in action. And a huge thank you to Sarah Patterson and your love and spiritual support throughout this process, and for the illumination of your voice on this track.

MP3 - Torch Songs by Susannah Darling Khan and Friends - Full Album

Torch Songs- for our turning times, is a compilation of love songs for life to help light the way in these challenging times. They are songs to hear, to sing, to dance with. Songs of celebration of the fire, the waters, the moon, the trees. Songs of could retrieval and of letting go. They are made in honour of life, in honour of the torch of life passed to us by those who came before, in support of us who live now, and in prayer for those who follow. Its dedicated to my mother, Elizabeth Darlington, who passed a little over 2 years ago. In the tradition of all the Earth is Sacred, there is a drum song, empty of words... And the song for the Amazon rainforest, Force of the Forest; which Ya'Acov and I wrote together. 10% of the proceeds from this album will go to the Pachamama Alliance to anchor this prayer in action. Ya'Acov says: “I am so proud to announce the release of Susannah’s latest album – Torch Songs: For these Turning Times. This album is a powerful invocation for us all to take courage and stand up for life on earth. Each song is a jewel. I love the musicality, the message and the magnificent medicine that this new album is offering into the world at a time when we all need to dance like dervishes and raise our voices for what we care for.
