The music, which comes from one’s heart, will reach the heart ...

The continual experiments with sound during hours-long improvisation sessions, both all alone and in front of the multicultural audience throughout the world, have been performing again and again a real miracle to me. The vibrations of sound produced by strings, penetrating deep into the very heart, repeatedly led me into that unexplored and endless inner space, where the great mystery of meeting with the Self takes place.

It is where, inside that inner space, the never-ending train of anxious thoughts yields to silent peace.... It is where the real freedom begins…. It is where the flight starts rising us above the thousands of enslaving fears, norms, stereotypes and letting us meet our true nature in its Oneness.

This incredible magic of the Internal Flight that I felt and continue to feel deep inside during each performance, no matter of the place and format, I wish to share with all of us through the music ... Just here and now…

With all love,
Е.Т.

lyrics

In a silent space.
I hear a voice
It whispers...
It sings...
At times it even cries out...

Like a wave
When it breaks on the ocean shore
It falls into pieces
Of that, which is called "me"


Particles of "me", particles of "you"...
Particles of "we"
The endless facets of a diamond
United in one breath

The beat of my heart echoes yours
A rhythm that resonates in every living thing
What if this voice that speaks in me
Is a key?
For a non-existing door...
Careful and unsure....
I take flight...

What do I know?
So much...but somehow nothing...

And if I'm honest with myself
All those memories
Short ones and long-lasting....
Are just dust....

What if I start from scratch...the empty page...
Stop running...
YES! This time, I'm here...
And to all those years...months'...and days..
I give thanks...I give thanks...

I stand on the cliff of my mind
It cries out in fear:
"Don't jump! You'll die"...

Those whirling thoughts....
As autumn leaves lifted by a wind
They dance...and sing:
"What will happen if you dive deep within?"

Face these guardian demons...
That are holding souls in chains..
As it seems...

Beliefs...dogmas...ideals....standards...
Theatrical performances...
Such fear games...

Who is that "true me"?
Who's hiding behind all these masks?
Absorbing the whole world
Who's writing all those stories?
It's like someone created a game and lives in it...

What if I stop for a moment...
Take rest from all these thoughts
Letting the world "be"...as it is...

Trusting heart's purity..
Into a Great Sea I dive...
Who am I?
Please answer!

I'm falling again...
Doubts are crawling in...
My wings got twisted...

Despair, disappointment...
Because of these questions-answers...
Mind games...

Loneliness and sadness...
These old companions...
So demanding...

I'm tired of myself, fighting…
Illusionary symbols...
Pretended sharing...
If you give, we give...
We are more and they are less...
Defining whites, blacks...reds....yellow...blue...
Only some are useful ...
But...is it all really true?!

All I believe in...
Just like passing clouds
Only stories...
All kinds...

I let them go...
And the need to know...
What...when...and why....

I lay down upon Mother Earth...
Trusting...she knows it all!

We give her names...
Dividing her by visible lines
While…
She is undivided and One!

Why not to choose peace…?
The choiceless peace!

I'm trusting this moment, opening...
My heart is opening...

Where is this meeting place with myself?
Yes! I know…it's inside...

But a soul...
No age...or race...or situation...
She smiles...
Smiles...she is...
And fear disappears when I'm BEING THAT!

Standing on Earth...
And also in the skies...
It’s quite effortless to die...knowing...
And to be born again...
Without dying...

How to describe in words what I feel?
Just smiling...
Breathing into joy...

Each dawn I'm born
Each night I die...
Dissolving "the who" and "what" and "why"

I'm a man...and a woman also...
I'm a bird...a child...
Clouds...and a sky...
I'm a stone in a stream
And a wave...that whispers to a shore:
Here...I am...

The sun is setting...
A gentle breeze is caresses my skin...
All senses are resting...
And calmness...is here....
Loving heart's space...
I exist...
Me doesn't

All is...And every change is just a new beginning...

As a modern-day Troubadour Estas Tonne travels countless places and finds himself in several cultural references without identifying himself with a single nation or country, rather with the cultural richness of the world.
