Liquid Bloom is a collaborative music project spearheaded by Amani Friend of Desert Dwellers, dedicated to the fusion of world music and electronic elements. With a focus on creating immersive and transformative sonic experiences, Liquid Bloom aims to bridge traditional and modern music, bringing together sounds and rhythms from around the globe to create a unique and captivating sound.
Since its inception, Liquid Bloom has worked with a diverse range of musicians and producers, including Poranguí, Deya Dova, and Mose, to name a few. Together they have created a rich tapestry of sound that blends organic instrumentation with electronic beats and melodies. Liquid Bloom has garnered a devoted following and earned a reputation for transporting audiences to far-off lands and otherworldly realms.
At the heart of Liquid Bloom is Amani’s passion for world music and his belief in the power of sound to heal and inspire. Drawing upon his own deep spiritual practice and years of experience as a producer, Amani crafts each Liquid Bloom track with intention and mindfulness, infusing each one with a sense of magic and wonder.
