kA is the project of Brooke Hamre Gillespie (The Holy Experiment) and Santiparro Alan Scheurman (Santiparro,) two earthbound celestial beings who together create joyous, transcendent songs that lift the spirits, allowing them to soar through forests and fields, over oceans, up through the clouds and into the ever-expanding universe, where the planets are always singing. In between songs, the pair stops to reflect…
Brooke: That song came from the forest of Michigan. A lot of these songs come from the forest of Michigan.
Alan: Not just the forest, but the fire, the trees…
Brooke: The stars, all the animals… the purple beetle!
Alan: The spiders…
Brooke: The spiders. The spider water!
Alan: And the dragons.
Brooke: And the real dragons!

In recent months, kA traveled to the West Coast to perform in an Alice Coltrane Tribute concert organized by friend Kyp Malone (Rain Machine). Alongside playing shows, they both lead ceremonies and music circles at Golden Drum, a Greenpoint, Brooklyn-based healing center whose practices are rooted in traditions of indigenous medicine healers from around the world.
