About Templo Sagrado

Templo Sagrado, or "Sacred Temple", was inspired by Akriza's experience traveling across Central America and visiting sacred sites along the way. Tikal was written on top of a temple in the ancient Mayan citadel that is located in the rainforests of northern Guatemala. 

 

This album is a journey that carries with it both ancient and future codes. It features epic cinematic movements, and soaring vocal melodies. Ranging from heavy bangers to deeper emotional tracks, all inspired by Akriza's transformational journey and live performances across Central America. This album captures and reflects the feelings of awe that arise from witnessing some of the earth’s most inspiring natural beauty, juxtaposed with ancient civilizations' most epic achievements.
 

The songs were created with the intention to awaken the listener into the purest depths of their heart and soul. Carrying with it the prayer that all beings may be kind and love more. All tracks carry the dichotomy of balance between light and dark, earth and sky, feminine and masculine, ancient and future--one not being present without the other.

 

As you listen, allow your body to move freely and express itself. Let the music enter your heart and allow you to drop out of your mind and deeper into your soul.
