“This music, the ideas and complete presentation of our art represents our solution and offering to the world. It’s music, but it’s magic and we intend to help heal people with it… We created a sound, holding a message that must be heard now. This music represents an idea whose time has come and we are blessed to be the vessels and bringers of this art.” – Asante’ Amin
“Plan for Paradise is a request. It’s not ‘the plan.’ This album is our attempt to find our paradise and an invitation for you to find the one you envision. We all have the power to manifest a reality beyond this one…one that allows us to maximize our fullest potential. This music is for celebration, meditation, reflection, motivation, healing and transformation. Plan for Paradise.” – Chen Lo
