Biography

Who is The Goddess Alchemy Project?

Bringing forth a timeless science through a live, lyrical experience of “more than one sista on the mic at a time”… this crew gives voice to the potent sound of Goddess Alchemy rising from underground urban-scapes to mainstream airwaves. In collaboration with many artists and producers, this unique sound provides a fresh flavor by integrating elements of underground hip hop, world accents, spoken word flows, and soulful melodics. Combine this with ancient texts, quantum physics, ancestral roots, multi-dimensional symbology, and an all-female cypher… the result to this equation is a new, musical science they call “Open Source Soul Floetics”. Utilizing multi-media as their tool of mass creation, The Goddess Alchemy Project fuses music, visual art, spoken word poetry, dance, their al.KEM.y Designs clothing company, and community outreach to bring sacred intention to the forefront of artistic momentum.

2007 has proved to be a breakthrough year for the 'Alchemistas' who have opened up for artists such as Common, Lyrics Born, The Coup, STS9 and thrown down with Bassnectar, J.Boogie, Wisdom, Ganga Giri, Zilla-to name a few. They are well known for their surprise element of collaboration with guest artists and often feature MC's, poets,singers, and dancers greatly enriching their live sets. Some more recent collabs include the potent crew of fierce female mcs...Las Krudas (de Cuba), Yaqui de Cuba, MC Souleye, Apostle (heavyweight dub champions), three-time battle champion Aima (Mamaz), beatbox-lyrical prodigy...LYNX, and Wisdom. Hence the saying"expect the unexpected." After experiencing a live music set of Goddess Alchemy, observers have often reflected being transported beyond boundaries, borders and boxes to a common place of tangible truth, arriving at the harmonic crux of cultural-co-existence. “Zapped,” “alchemized,” “transformed,” “inspired,” Goddess Alchemy has magnetized full-spectrum support from all walks and talks from punk rockers to conservatives.

Founded in grassroots community organizing and creative activism, The Goddess Alchemy Project has been generating cutting edge works since its inception in 2002 as an independent arts collective. The collective’s core intention to empower the voices of female artists from the underground to the frontlines has sustained the project through its many phases of evolution. Beginning in Santa Cruz, CA, the four core project members have roots from Tennessee to Hawaii to California, and integrate both national and international artists to represent a vast spectrum of voices. Grounded in the collaborative process, the first emanations of art to arise came as incantations in the form of spoken word, and evolved into musical compositions as the project expanded. Each member carries with her a diversity of experiences, passions, skills, stories, inspirations, offerings, and insights informed by each unique path she has walked. The collective expression emerges as a tapestry of sound, weaving myriad influences and distinct individual styles into a unified composition. The music offered by The Goddess Alchemy Project is one key aspect within the totality of their work, which also includes international solidarity work with indigenous peoples, youth service, arts empowerment education, young women’s programs, clothing design, event production, and other forms of community outreach. These elements of the project have always informed the music, and are deeply connected to the work the collective presents through their performances.

Lyrics

Justice

Written By: The Goddess Alchemy Project

Justice
Chorus:
To the edge of the world I go
Inscribed in the epitaph of my soul
I feel it I feel it
On a journey to the edge of the world we go
Inscribed in the epitaph of our soul’s
We feel it we feel it

As the sky rumbles around me
In this peopled possibility~
My attitude affected by the altitude
I smile in the turbulence
Unaffected by the pestilence
Yes I confess,
I’m on a conquest for content
In a black and white, shakedown century
People can you feel me as I swing
On this tethered pendulum
I'm fielding questions in the fallout
Prayers for rain in a season of drought
Earth tones, ringin’ louder than my cell phone
Can you hear me as I call?
Can you catch me as I fall?
Seed I seek to grow tall…
Not modified homogenized hydrogenized
But glorified crystallized and mesmerized
By this polarized perplexity,
It be vexing’ me, but it won’t get the best of we cause,

On the razor’s edge of annihilation
We callin’ out for Regeneration
On the edge of extermination
We’re callin out for Regeneration

Chorus

Cause I’m skatin’ on this plane of my ice cold privilege
And I’m rigid this system got me frigid
Bob Marley no make joke when him say guiltiness
Rest pon dem conscience
I confess my life is excess
At the blatant expense
Of my sisters and brothers living in the gutters of our waste
This system breeding haste
A living disgrace to humanity
Accepted insanity propelled by the economic trap
Hierarchy maintaining the gap we call poverty
The rapist of our right we call liberty
The elite not free addicted materially
Distracted merely from the inequality we see
The people are perturbed the leaders must be served
With a taste of the
misery that is reality for the majority
We want justice

Because my brothers are dying
So many sisters are dying
They’re tired of living
They’re tired of trying

In a society that is constantly
Prosecuting w bars of insanity
Leaving no room to plea
For the moneyless of humanity
So the walls close in by the Babylon system
Yet, Babylon is a state of mind... is a state of mind
Death Row, who are we to judge who must go?
Politicians playin’ as if they know
With their guns and ammunition
While they fight for recognition
While the people are left to live
On another superstition
Say, we’re hoping for a new tomorrow
For time to heal all sorrow
We want Justice, yeah (x2)
We want Justice.

Science of A New Time

Written By: The Goddess Alchemy Project

Science of a New Time
Chorus:

This is open source soul symmetry
Designed to activate the flow within we
This is open source soul symmetry
Aligned to magnify the flow of divinity
More than one sista on the mic at a time
Time to open up your holographic mind and unwind
To the science of a new time
To the science of a new time
Ta tat a ta tap (x2)

Time is an illusion gots to rise above confusion
Alchemical solution to alleviate pollution yeah (x2)

These are the schematics of our soul mathematics
If you want to quench your unrelenting thirst best take a deep breath first
For if you wanna dance with we, best align your soul symmetry

To the rhythm of your breath
and the reason of this rhyme is to resurrect the depth
We all long to express
Within a played out paradigm
Within a played out paradigm
Ta-tat a-ta-tap

We bringin it up from the ground
And down from the sky
Meet it in the middle open up third eye yes (x2)
Third eye oh my rewind back to the time
We be kickin’ it wih our sistas in the alchemetic shrine
Writin hieroglyphics of the parabolic kind
Plantin seeds in the mind to unveil in modern times
Now we harvestin the science and translatin’ it in rhyme (x2)

More than one sista on the mic 1 - 2
More than one sista so what you gonna do? (x2)
This insista no resista cause she gonna raise her fists up
Sista no resista (what-wha-wha-wha-what?) (x2)
She be a busta, a pseudo-system raider
A lyrical crusader, here to burn down dem hater
Inna this time we drink of the spiritual divine
From the well of the self
In this time we can find
The nectar, elixir, sip from flame of da fire
Ready to burn dem down w the potency of desire
Of desire, of desire…

More than one sista on the mic at a time
Time to open up your holographic mind and unwind
To the science of a new time
To the science of a new time

Lasting Origins of Vibrant Evolution

Lasting Origins of Vibrant Evolution
Love in its original time-
Fulfillment inside, then look to a person
To honor such a brilliant light
Born of the earth, and love is communion
Sacred union that can strengthen each stride
My sister we see, you’re walking your journey
And we bless you with the highest of light

Lasting origins, and the love is solution
Time to go within to further evolution
Grow the soul of that we know
Walk the path of truth we show
I am myself contained a whole
And you, I see, complete the “we”
Collectively, true love body
Unconditionally

Because we love we, love we
Not separately from me, love we
So oh oh, sister, in this whisper we say:
“walk your path strong every night and each day”
And to you we sing this song with all our love we shall say

Lasting Origins of Vibrant Evolution
We first got to love ourselves right
Fulfillment inside, then look to a person
To honor such a brilliant light
Born of the earth, and love is communion
Sacred union that can strengthen each stride
My sister we see, you’re walking your journey
And we bless you with the highest of light

So on the night when the feel is right
We bless you and send you on your sacred flight
Upon the wind sweet love we send
To consecrate your sacred
Union of the soul,
Spirit we know, see it…your glow
Feel it, watch it grow…
And echo from the depths of the cosmos
Oh deep soul, we want you to know
You’re so beautiful
So beautiful
Emanate essence of a potent rose
A rarity, as vast as the sea
Like the river she flows so effortlessly
A divine beauty, She shine through we
My sister divine, sent from above…
A reflection of pure and eternal love
Eternal love, eternal love

Lasting Origins of Vibrant Evolution
Love in its original time-
Fulfillment inside, then look to a person
To honor such a brilliant light
Born of the earth, and love is communion
Sacred union that can strengthen each stride
My sister we see, you’re walking your journey
And we bless you with the highest of light
