Ayahuasca: Welcome to the Work is the title of the ninth studio album by Australian indie pop musician Ben Lee, in collaboration with Jessica Chapnik Kahn. It was funded by crowd-sourcing platform Pledge Music and was released in Australia on 22 April 2013.
The album is based upon Lee's and Chapnik Kahn's personal experiences with the South American healing medicine, Ayahuasca, known for its psychoactive properties that are reported to lead the consumer to a state of spiritual awakening. The idea behind the recording was to sonically document the inner journey experienced while partaking in the Ayahuasca ceremony. Lee himself describes the album as "dynamic and joyful, meditative and tender, playful and experimental," and hopes that "the music contains some small portion of the deep nourishment that I have experienced from the plant medicine."
100% of the artist royalties collected from album sales will be donated to the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies and the Amazon Conservation Team.
