We are Holly and Tomo = Santa Dharma. We're back for FAWM 2019. Last year we had a lot of issues with a jerk neighbor who literally called the police on @lanasolyluna for doing yoga videos on her laptop, so we couldn't really enjoy FAWM as much as we had hoped. We bought a house at the end of last year and decided to professionally soundproof a bedroom, so hopefully this year we won't have any neighbor issues. No real ideas for what we want to do this year, so let's see what happens. Looking forward to hearing all your music.

2/4... (@lanasolyluna) Some things in the works, lots of little bits of song ideas, but not ready to share them yet. Tascam tape recorder is being a little weird, life has been a bit hectic, but hopefully we can get on track soon. XX

2/7 @lanasolyluna : Trying to plug along on some pieces of tracks, but work has been super busy for both of us and we're very (VERY) sleep deprived, probably a necessary part of FAWM, but more than usual Trying to get over ourselves and just put some of it up even though it's not that great, we'll see what happens 😉 Thanks for your comments on our first track.

2/28--Since @lanasolyluna insisted on putting up stuff we technically made it across the finish line, but we'll probably delete it soon because it's not so great. Will be listening over the next few days, so hope you're all still around.

    Sorry link didn't work for Mother Earth song. I think it happens on and off. Not sure if it's a FAWM issue or Kiwi6 where I upload the MP3 files.
    Working OK now though.

    Thank you for stopping by on 'Dinner While On Fire..'
    I don't like it due to the chaos of which you speak...but...people seem to like that about it. To me, there's too much clashing - the soloing is all over the place and I kinda lost my place several times while doing it lol
    The song itself is basically what happened out of frustration due to a creative block that I was having at the moment...I couldn't come up with anything. So I just started playing whatever.
    But seriously, thank you for seeing it as you do. Sincerely appreciate it!
