Within the folds of Holy Waters resides Aruba Red’s signature brand of edgy spiritual pop. Positive energy and mystical vibes have come to define her, and rightly so; Aruba Red delivers futuristic soul to leave you feeling uplifted. This latest offering coincided with the full moon, celebrating the sacred bond between mother and child.
Featuring a beautiful string arrangement from award-winning composer Nitin Sawhney and a soaring guitar solo transporting you to another dimension, Holy Waters is a musically rich, lyrically impressive celebration of love and transformation.
“This is the first song I wrote since I had stopped creating music due to a really difficult time for me personally. It means so much to me because it documents the spiritual transformation I felt being ignited through trauma, loss, pregnancy, birth, motherhood and shedding the toxic energy I had carried for so long.” – Aruba Red
The song focuses on moving up through the veils of consciousness motivated by love and the connection between mother and child. The video, documents the beautifully intimate moments shared between Aruba and her son in the gorgeous setting of the Majorcan countryside.
“I wanted to capture this incredibly special time between my baby and me. I’m so excited to finally share this. My little Ché was born at home in the water on Christmas Day under a full moon and my life was changed forever. It became my mission to heal myself so my son can be free.” – Aruba Red
‘Holy Waters’ EP is available now to stream / purchase via all major digital outlets.
