Q + A with Kay and Terrence:

What was the inspiration for the single? 

The song came to me in a meditative state. It’s inspired by my own personal inner transformation and was parallel to my discovery of the healing and empowering practice of Transcendental Meditation.

What is the song about? 

The song is an allegorical love song about the transformative power of meditation. The first love relationship that we have is with ourselves. If we can perfect generous self-love, we can experience love in the world in all its forms. The song is called “Love Meditation” because the practice of meditation can cause us to love ourselves perfectly and thus allow us to attract the best experiences life has to offer, including great relationships, happiness, success and invincibility.

Describe your sound?

Our sound is inspired by contemporary genres such as house, amapiano, afropop and jazz. It expresses the complexity of South Africa’s varied musical nuances in an accessible manner delivered with live instrumentation.
