A meditative collective is the backbone of Surrender Cowboys. That’s where the music comes from, so essentially every note we ever played was meditation music. Also, the concerts we give are meditation events, first and foremost. For us, “Meditation Music” does not just mean pleasant calming background music, it is music that speaks directly to the place where existence is contained as it is – where one drops all attempts to change, accomplish or appear to be anything, but is simply there. With all of one’s lively, adventurous being. Music that comes from there, supports meditation. Whenever you listen, a part of you is already in deep meditation.
Our music ranges from improvisation to songs carefully composed. Our concerts are sometimes accompanied by instructions in meditation, clear and simple enough for anyone to follow. We play in churches and parks as well as on stages. No matter what the context is, our way ahead is always to play what resonates in the situation. Awake, alive, born in the moment.
