Longtime devotee, Crane Kirkbride, offers this testimonial to the life and work of Adi Da Samraj, in which he describes singing for, and with, Adi Da. Includes a clip of Adi Da singing opera with Crane; and a slideshow of stunning pictures of Adi Da from 1972 through 2008, accompanied by Crane singing "I Am Who You Are".
This video clip is an excerpt from First Evening: Tracks 16 and 17 on the DVD, A Tribute to the Life and Work of His Divine Presence, Adi Da Samraj. More than 7 hours long, this Tribute DVD was filmed on the occasion of the first Anniversary of Adi Da's Divine Mahasamadhi, when devotees, family, and friends of Adi Da Samraj gathered at Adi Da Samrajashram, Fiji (Adi Da's principal Hermitage), to acknowledge Adi Da as the Divine in human form, to praise His Greatness, and to express their heart-felt gratitude for the Blessings they have received from Him.
A list of all the tracks on this DVD can be found here.
Opera singer and longtime devotee Crane Kirkbride sings in devotional rapture and praise of Avatar Adi Da Samraj, including the Adidam classic, "I Am Who You Are", as well as selections by devotee composers Ray Lynch, Joanne Sunshine, John Mackay, and Louis Rozier.
Liquid Light is a sequel of a kind to Crane's earlier album, Infinite Well. It is more ambitious, including new devotional songs by John Mackay, who also produced this album, a Chaconne by Louis Rozier, several classical pieces set to Words by Adi Da Samraj, even the duet from "The Pearlfishers!" Katharine DeBoer, Roger Ohlsen and Mel McMurrin join Crane as vocalists for this album, which also introduces some fine instrumentalists. Every song except "If You Keep Too Many Cats" has been offered to Avatar Adi Da in a "Sacred Offering".
