Home

Home is where the Heart is. From there we live, sing and play our music. With love for life as our biggest inspiration. Like that we enjoy all kinds of music. Can be a sweet, small and intimate song. Can be a skankin’ reggae. Can be a melodramatic klezmer song, a steaming polka or an all dissolving mantra. We enjoy it all.

Songs

Here you can listen to some Baumwolle recordings.

Loving Heart

‘Loving Heart’ is an original Baumwolle song that arose in the deep love and connection with Naropa, our dear friend and Spiritual Artist. This is a live recording in the Sufi Tempel in Katwijk.



Se Ha Elohim

‘Se Ha Elohim’ is an old traditional Hebrew song that refers to Yeshua, or Jesus, as the Lamb of God. We could also read that as the Son of God. This is what John the Baptist called Yeshua when he first met him.



All the World is Green

‘All the World is Green’ is a wonderful classic song by Tom Waits. It was the first song Celina and Lennaert ever played together. Here you can hear the Bauwolle version played live in a small living room concert in Rotterdam.



Sri Ram Jay Ram

‘Sri Ram Jay Ram’ is an ancient Hindu mantra that Hanuman is always singing. Rama is one of the names that refer to God, Consciousness, or Love. The mystical principle that gives life to all and everything. It is the mantra that purifies the heart and bestows devotion to God.
