INVOCATION – drum songs from the north
by Wild Moon Sisters, Camilla Måne and Stina Gray
"Invocation" is a collection of songs and chants for invoking your inner wild, inspired by the landscape and seasons of our motherland Sweden. 
Take off your shoes and feel the earth under your feet! Let down your hair and sing from the heart! Dance, howl and sing along with us! 
Released on the harvest full moon 14th September 2019, this album contains some of our favourite songs from over these past couple of years of joining our voices and drums in collaboration, gathering people in circles to sing, dance and share stories of returning, rewilding and reawakening. A harvest of music for circle gatherings and ceremony.

wild one come with your wise ways old,
wild one come paint the grey skies gold.

Lyrics (in Swedish):
Vildkvinna, vildkvinna, vildkvinna, vildkvinna,
jag ska finna dig vildkvinna, vildkvinna
kom kvinna, kom kvinna, kom kvinna, kom kvinna,
jag ska finna min vildkvinna, vildkvinna
Jag ska lyssna till ditt vargayl!
Jag ska följa med dig vart du går!
Jag ska lyssna till ditt vargayl!
Jag ska följa med dig vart du går!

Camilla wrote this song in honour of the Ume River that flows through the town Umeå where she lives in northern Sweden.




7.     Sarahkka
A song in honour of Sarahkka, inspired from Stina's journey in the land of the midnight sun. Sarahkka is ahkka spirit from traditional Sámi shamanism. Goddess of fire, she lives in the centre of the hearth, providing warmth and light for all. Goddess of birth and motherhood, she nurtures all life and helps mothers give birth. Stina often sings this song when kindling a fire to invoke the spirit of Sarahkka and to thank her for her blessings.

Lyrics:
We are daughters of Mother Earth, daughters of the earth
We are daughters of Mother Earth, daughters of the earth
and we walk her path in love
and we feel her love rising from deep within our womb
and we feel her love rising from deep within our heart
and we walk her path in love





9.     Varga

Intro: (Swedish) Vargkvinnan, det sägs att hon fortfarande kallar på sina vargdöttrar i fullmånens sken... Varga, Varga, Varga...
Translation: Wolf Woman, they say that she still calls for her wolf-daughters in the light of the full moon... Varga, Varga, Varga...
