Pioneer the Light, the first release from Minneapolis based singer/songwriter duo Blue Soul Caravan explore themes of transcendent love, fear, light, darkness, and what it is to be alive on this playground Earth. Alex Goldfarb and Leela Bergerud create unique harmonies while cultivating a world folk flavor. This music draws upon a lifetime of musical influences (Nick Drake, Paul Simon, Gillian Welch, Iron & Wine, etc.) as well as more obscure tastes from the Kirtan and sacred world music traditions. Blue Soul Caravan artfully blends Bluegrass, Sanskrit mantras, and folk overtones with world infused instrumentation. Inspiration for this album spans the mundane challenges of being human to timeless Buddhist dharma teachings, inviting the listener to remember the more eternal truth of our very being.
