Kali Ra “Canto XIV”


Oklahoma City born David Goed, communicates through many aspects. Though of particular note, echoing vicariously through artifices of audible dialect. Casting spells using waveforms are his magic trick, and these sonic evocations stir a bubbling cauldron of emotions. Immolate with Kali Ra, and enter the realm of fusion inspirations. Stamped together like a blacksmith forging a scimitar for an upcoming pillage. Blending styles together in a orchestral way, he encapsulates the vision emerging in his art from worlds apart.

Imagine Kali Ra is a Pirate Ship, where the Main vessel sails around gathering various other aptly seasoned comrades aboard its deck to continue doing what it does best, helping to renew the never-ending cycle of entropy. Making a career out of traveling with a small community of like-minded liaisons to fulfill their encompassing directional fortes. The audible gems of his molding are of the adaptation of his methods, where he explains in a recent interview I had with him, “I take kind of a zen approach, perhaps it seems kind of corny or whatever, but it works for me. I do it for the process itself and not even for the end result. The end result is tenuous at best.”

Other than swashbuckling songs and serving swigs of spiced rum to his shipmates, Kali Ra would love to continue touring. When asked if plans were in works to do once it was safe again, David Goad replied with, “Yes, when it is safe, and by safe I define that as, people have pulled their heads out of their asses and gotten the vaccine.” If you pleased the Goddesses enough you may be lucky enough to catch Kali Ra live some day near you. However, until then you may check out Kali Ra on kalira.Bandcamp.com, Facebook, Most if not all streaming services including Spotify, and Youtube hosts some great videos of theirs as well.
