The voice of Cilette Swann and the musical abilities of Roman Morykit come together beautifully to form the inspirational folk duo, Gypsy Soul.
Without wavering from their passion or messages of inspiration offered in their various albums, the music of Gypsy Soul can soothe listeners’ anxieties, realign focus to what’s really important, and provide enlightenment in times needed.
Gypsy Soul gives listeners a spiritual musical treat on Superstition Highway (Off The Beaten Track Recordings), an album with universal appeal.
With eleven tracks, Superstition Highway offers songs that are slow and thoughtful, folky and rhythmic, and even jazz-inspired. “Only Knew You” is a sultry song questioning respect and wrong-doing within a relationship. In “Who” Swann’s voice enchants listeners easily as the lyrics recite the big questions most people ponder in life. “Time of Innocence” is a catchy song in which Morykit’s musical talent shines.
Title song “Superstition Highway” and album closer “Eventide” are the two powerful instrumental songs on the album. Gypsy Soul Duo also includes two cover songs suiting with the album’s overall tone: “Scarborough Fair” and “Nights in White Satin.”
Musical Duo Gypsy Soul
Swann and Morykit have been writing, recording, and performing music together for over twenty years. The two met overseas during a time when each musician’s career was in need of rejuvenation and discovered a harmony in their songwriting skills. Relocating to Los Angeles, Gypsy Duo has always maintained a dedication to their music and to their fans.
In addition to forming the record label Off The Beaten Track Recordings, Gypsy Duo has released ten albums. Fans of the group have always been appreciative of their dreams, and as such financial donations, equipment donations, and support at performances have helped Gypsy Soul sell over 1.5 million downloads, earn independent music awards, and spots on top music charts.
Gypsy Soul’s passion for music, arts, and charity is demonstrated through their annual fundraising productions for organizations across the country, including food banks, addiction centers, and health clinics.
The success of the duo and their appreciation for everyone who has helped them along the way is a sign of continued dreaming and passion for sharing inspiration through music.
Everyone has a purpose. Everyone has a contribution to make. Everyone has a place in this world. When these realizations are made, our global community is enhanced with joy, knowledge, love, and endless opportunity.
From what began as an honest quest of his own personal transformation, award-winning filmmaker Demian Lichtenstein, along with his sister Shajen Joy Aziz, created Discover The Gift (Equilibrium Entertainment).
This has since manifested into a movement of self-illumination for everyone to experience the extraordinary and powerful journey of self-discovery.
Create Your Own Reality
What happens when one starts questioning the purpose of their life’s purpose? For Lichtenstein, this questioning led to Discover The Gift, a powerful documentary film illustrating the realization that each person on earth is here to release special gifts and powers that lay within.
In the film, Lichtenstein notes that individuals are a “singular manifestation of a cosmic destiny,” and as each person realizes his or her gift, they graduate to the next stage of their own evolution. This, in turn, stimulates the gifts in others.
The stunningly written and produced film depicts Lichtenstein’s admission—and that of Aziz—of not being present in their own presence and the struggle to emerge as true, authentic beings. Through a series of honest discussions, both Lichtenstein and Aziz come together after years of separation and discovered they individually have gifts to offer the world. And, through the process, they realized a gift they can share in unison: so began Discover The Gift.
The Process of Enlightenment
On the path of discovering life purpose, one will discover how to intentionally change their thoughts to manifest an honest and pure existence. It’s a discovery of living a life not made by one’s parents, clergy, or even politicians, but of finding the thing that makes one think, “I was born for this!”
How can one find his or her gift? It can come about in many different ways. For example, silence and solitude can help one become more in tune with themselves. This is an opportunity to give one’s self permission to dream, to forgive, and to love one’s self and others.
Life is just like a mirror: this is one of the most profound message delivered in the film. The human mind creates life for us. Life is the process of what we pay attention to or what we focus on. Lichtenstein advises viewers to follow their hearts in order to discover the greatest gift and adventures that could come their way. The only obstacle in life is ourselves!
Eight Universal Spiritual Laws to Change Your Life
The film and corresponding book by the same title discuss eight simple, yet profound, principles that help individuals discover their true potential:
This beautifully-created film includes the inspirational guidance from over 40 global leaders, each who offers their spiritual wisdom and guidance to viewers. Discover The Gift is about the possibilities that exist within every individual and society as a whole. This film delivers a powerful, universal message that will leave a lasting impression with everyone who watches and takes its meaning to heart.
The Second Annual Awareness Film Festival
Discover The Gift made its debut at the second annual Awareness Festival, held early May, 2011 in Hollywood, CA. The mission of the Awareness Festival is to present films that bring awareness and open viewers’ eyes to some of the world’s most pressing issues regarding ecological perspectives, political impacts, the understanding of health and wellbeing, and scientific progress.
The Awareness Festival was created by the non-profit charity organization HealOneWorld.org. Funds generated from the event go to support the organization’s mission to help people learn about and receive preventative and alternative health care approaches to wellness.
Both the film and book of Discover the Gift is available for preorder prior to their release on June 14, 2011.
Discover The Gift (Harmony) is also a book of inspiration designed to show readers how each one has a special purpose in life that must be shared with the world. The book complements the movie, and unfolds the authors’ personal self-journeys of discovery while offering guidance for readers to do the same. The book is available in hardcover, as a Kindle download, or an audio CD.
The Discover The Gift book and video are a powerful combination and serve as a collective catalyst for unlocking individual and combined potential for creating more love, joy, and happiness in the world.
