Medicine Songs

Medicine songs can be described as songs that are infused with the consciousness of love and light. They are often produced and played in the spirit of ‘prayer’ or ‘offering,’ with the musician/singer emanating their sounds from strong intentions of blessing, healing and all-round wellbeing to those who may tune in to them.

Medicine songs have been a part of ancient cultures for as long as we know, and have been used to bring balance, healing and restoration to those who need it. But these songs are not strictly limited to our world’s ancient cultures. Anybody who is considered to be ‘in touch’ with the divine can potentially produce medicine songs.

Ayahuasca icaros are one example of medicine songs that can only be performed by trained shamans. The ayahuasca dieta and training requires shamans to encounter their own unique icaros given to them directly from the spirit of ayahuasca, and can act like magic spells in ceremonies; providing strength, healing, and protection.
