    The Biopholio™ is a two-sided, 20-panel origami-inspired medium, bursting with vibrant artwork and liner notes; each one made entirely out of FSC-certified, robust paper, hand-folded and printed using plant-based inks. There is no Compact Disk (CD) or plastic in this product.

    Found inside each Biopholio™ is a unique code for the listener to digitally download the music in hers/his preferred format (high CD-quality, uncompressed WAV files, et cetera...)

    This innovative design caters to the environmentally-conscious listener, who is aware of the harmful effects of plastic in the environment, yet feels that a digital download is just not enough. With your purchase, you are supporting the future of this music and the artists who create it with the added bonus of receiving a tangible piece of original album artwork that you can proudly cherish for years to come.

    Artwork & design by Zora Oberhänsli.

This song is written in admiration and love for my friend, the vocalist, composer and educator Imani Uzuri. The lyrics are not directed at her, but they would be words of wisdom she could have (and probably has) said. Imani is a person who fully engages the world, living out her understanding and emotions fully, and creating manifesting a vision that reflects her level of engagement with reality. She has taught me many things about the complexity of humans - about intersectionality, about the meaning of life, about a path towards feeling whole and honest.


Walk by the sea
You know how I feel
Walk by the sea
She knows what I feel
Bury the past
The harrowing feelings
Can never last

You know what I mean
You know who I mean
And throughout the days
He’d throw me away

You know what I mean
You know what I mean
I mean, that when you walk alone
You aren’t really all alone
I mean that when you walk away
You aren’t really all alone
I mean, that when you feel alone
You’re part of all that’s ever known
I mean that, when you walk alone
You’re part of all who’ve ever grown
