Dale Crowley started the Upanishad Project in early 2010 with an Indaba group. The goal was to produce an album based on the 12 principal Upanishads – ancient philisophical texts that show how deeply we are all connected to one another and to the universe. There couldn’t have been a better place for such a project than the global community on Indaba. Over 30 Indaba members were involved in the creation of 13 awesome songs!
“It was a pleasure and an honor to work with more than thirty Indaba musicians to produce thirteen songs inspired by the Upanishads. It took just over a year to complete, and it would not have been possible without the incredible Indaba community. Thanks so much to everyone who worked so hard to deliver brilliant performances, beautiful poetry and lyrics, and overcame many personal struggles during the completion of this project.” — Dale Crowley

The Upanishad Project is dedicated to the memory of Cynthia Pollock, beloved wife of Addison Pollock, who contributed many of the refined and beautiful lyrics to the songs.
