about

Shortly after moving out of Sydney to live in the Blue Mountains I went to visit a good friend of mine living and working with aboriginal women artists and their community in Central Australia. The feeling of the wide ancient red earth has stayed with me as i look back now 2016 and has infused not onlly the songwriting but penetrated deeply into this life. Spiral Dancing and later songs on REVIVAL EP, namely Red Dirt Wilderness and Woman Child also sprang from this journey to The Red Centre. Hope you enjoy!

lyrics

SPIRAL DANCING ©Peggy van Zalm

Rising into the new sky.
Rising higher and higher
I can see it all below
Twisting and flowing
From this heaven my highway

Ant people and box buildings, caterpillar rivers
This desert dreaming under full moon , her light streaming down,
pulling me up again.
Yes I’ll take this flight, lover I’m leaving here tonight I’ll be..

Spiral Dancing thru this timeless land
Spiral dancing thru this land

Following invisible rivers.
Red ochre travail of human endeavour.
Thru ritual, the chant of a land.
Songlines my spirit thru time.

Yes I’ll take this flight, lover I’m leaving here tonight I’ll be..

Spiral Dancing thru this timeless land
Spiral dancing thru this land

And I know we’ve been together

Spiral Dancing thru this timeless land
Spiral dancing thru this land
