Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith – Peradam

Scroll down to content

The sound of Himalayan winds, sacred mantras and water rippling in the holy river Ganges, invite us to Peradam, the transcendent new album by Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith, featuring ANOUSHKA SHANKAR, TENZIN CHOEGYAL, and CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG. Peradam takes as its entry point RENÉ DAUMAL’s early 1940s novel Mount Analogue: a Novel of Symbolically Authentic Non-Euclidean Adventures in Mountain Climbing, in which the French writer, critic and poet mapped a metaphysical journey to “the ultimate symbolic mountain” in search of meaning. In it, Daumal introduced the idea of the “peradam”, a rare, crystalline stone – harbouring profound truths – that is only visible to seekers on a true spiritual path.
