At long last, RevKess has brought back Musica Pagani. As listeners of PMPChannel well know, MP is somewhat infrequent, but RevKess does have a crazy schedule. He’s going to try his best to bring Musica Pagani to the listeners on a more regular basis.
In this 20th edition of the rebooted Musica Pagani, RevKess brought you just over an hour’s worth of new age and Pagan music. Much of it new to the channel, some a little more familiar. Check the playlist below and follow the links to learn more about the musicians.
Sunday the 5th of January brought what we believe to be a first on Murphy’s Magic Mess, the US debut of Damh the Bard’s newest single, The Wicker Man. Released to the public on the 3rd, to the best of our knowledge the Mess was the first terrestrial radio show to play this wonderful single from British Pagan/Druid recording artist Damh the Bard. You can listen to and purchase the single here.
I enjoyed teasing Murf and Kate, as well as the listeners, with hints at what was in store late in the show. Along with Damh’s single we also played a lot of new New Age music from artists like Kristin Amarie, Yang Yiing, Timothy Wenzel, Steven Vitali, Masako and Dan Chadburn. In the second half of the show we brought you new music from SJ Tucker, Wendy Rule and of course Damh the Bard. Along the way we played classic pieces from Inanna, Ubaka Hill and Lesiem. So much more. Check out the play list below for a full listing of the music.

It was tracking again this week, so the play list reads differently than how I normally post it.
At least for now, RevKess seems to be on a roll. Here’s another fun episode of Musica Pagani. This time 15 new pieces of new age music. With the exception of a two part piece, each track is a different musican or band. Most of it does come from new releases for December, but some are earlier releases just arrived or new releases that arrived for October and November of 2013.
Starting off with a wintery mix for the holiday season, moving into inspirational and then some drumming and vocals, winding down with more instrumentals and closing out with a sampling of Celtic music.
We do hope that you enjoy the combination of musics!

Well now, would seem that RevKess has been even more neglectful of things than usual. It has been some time since he did an edition of Musica Pagani. He’s making it up for it the best he can with a two parter: Rock It, Pagan Style!
Earlier in 2013, Kenny Klein launched a recording project with his touring band FishBird. Some of the music they did was rock-like covers of some of his older music. And of course, every good musician is experimenting with new pieces whenever possible. That’s just what FishBird has done.
In this two parter of Musica Pagani you will get a taste of FishBird as well as some other rocking musicians and bands with a distinctive Pagan flare. Everyone from Leigh Anne Hussey with her unreleased Uglytown demo to Wendy Rule and Rosin Coven, with stops along the way to visit with Omnia and Frenchy and the Punk.
We do hope that you have enjoyed this special edition of Musica Pagani!
Beginning on Saturday 7 September 2013 and Sunday 8 September 2013 Pagan-Musings Podcast and Musica Pagani are flipping around. Due to a major scheduling conflict, RevKess and KaliSara have decided to flip the programs around. As many of the regular listeners have no doubt noticed this summer, RevKess has been absent more often than not from Pagan-Musings. With football season starting up it is almost guaranteed that he will be unavailable for any of the live Saturday broadcasts for the foreseeable future. With careful consideration, the hosts have decided it would be in the interests of the listeners and the channel to change things.
Beginning on Saturday 7 September 2013 at 7pm Central you can hear Musica Pagani in a recorded format. RevKess wil continue to bring you music from the New Age and Pagan genres along with interview segments with some of those artists. You can also catch some RevKess’s music reviews over at his review site.
Beginning on Sunday 8 September 2013 at 7pm Central you can hear Pagan-Musings Podcast, most often broadcast live. KaliSara and RevKess will continue to bring you talk and information from the Pagan community with a variety of topics and guests.
Here at PMPChannel we hope that you will find this change to be easy and cause little to no disruption to your listening experience. The hosts are looking forward to being able to continue to bring you the information and entertainment you have grown to appreciate over the years, as well as spice things up a bit with some new topics, new guests, new music, and lots of fun!
You can contact the hosts of PMPChannel at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook.

The next edition of Musica Pagani, #14, is the last to be aired on a Sunday. Due to scheduling conflicts, RevKess and KaliSara (cohost on Pagan-Musings Podcast) have elected to flip the shows. Starting on Saturday 7 September 2013 you can find Musica Pagani on the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel at 7pm Central. Sunday the 8th starts the new day for Pagan-Musings Podcast, airing live at 7pm Central.
RevKess had a blast with the 10th edition of Musica Pagani. Drumming in the Harvest was full of drumming and lively music. A true harvest celebration.
With harvest related pieces from Damh the Bard, Jenna Greene, Cernunnos Rising and Heartbeat, as well as drumming interpretation of African inspired music from Hennie Bekker and rock styles from Omnia, this edition brings you a collection of music from around several places around the globe.
This was a real chance for RevKess to share some of his favorite drumming pieces he’s collected over the years, most of his favorite drumming groups have been kind enough to allow airplay on PMPChannel. Tuatha Dea, Elvendrums, Dragon Ritual Drummers and Frenchy and the Punk to name but a few.
Due to some scheduling issues and RevKess getting deep into research, Musica Pagani aired a day early. Saturdays are the usual day for the Pagan-Musings Podcast with KaliSara and RevKess. RevKess has to work and KaliSara has dived deep into her writing projects. So, Musica Pagani comes to you a day early. Hope that you enjoy!
The format is a little bit different for this evening’s broadcast as well. Managing to squeeze the show into just over two hours, RevKess brings you a selection of New Age and Pagan music, but with a different twist. 1-2 tracks per artists instead of three, and a story thrown in their for a little bit of extra fun. As all the programming on the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel is constantly evolving, who knows where the next edition will bring you!
Speaking of future editions, before we give you the set list, here’s a sneak peak at what is coming your way in August. On Sunday the 11th, Brian Henke visits with RevKess about his music career, shares some of his inspirations and his music. On the 18th, that Goddess Kiss’d gal from Florida, Mama Gina, joins RevKess on the show to talk about her music and a recent benefit to support a local metaphysical shop that was destroyed in a fire.

This edition visits the genre of Space or Ambient music. With some techno thrown in for fun.
Some of the music that you find in this posting is be artists that PMPChannel has permission to play in podcast, from them you will hear more on either Musica Pagani or in the music segments of other programs. The rest are artists that RevKess has stumbled upon when searching for new music to add to his private collection as well as the music archives of PMPChannel.
Sensitive Chaos – Seeker After Patterns – Seeker After Patterns All of Sensitive Chaos is being added to the PMPChannel music archives. Be listening for them if you enjoy this video.
From 1988, part of the Crystal Suite release from Steven Halpern – Crystal Suite
Scott Helland is one half of Frenchy and the Punk. He’s been a recording artists longer than he has known Frenchy (Sam). Here is a sample from his Motion Sickness CD from 1999.
Julian H. Mulder has several ambient space pieces available, here is one of them.
Robert Christopher shows that some ambient music can be creepy dark with his “Haunted Sky”.
*shivers* After that creepy track we need something nice and soothing. How about some crystal singing bowls? Here is Spiral Sound of Sound Crystal Bowl Choir with their “So Ham”. You might want to turn your speakers up a bit for this.
“Gratitude” from Paradiso and Rasamayi’s first album together, 3rd Eye Rising. You can read RevKess’s review of this album and their second album on RevKess Reviews.
The original intent of the Musica Pagani Video Bonuses was to showcase some of the wonderful music available on YouTube and other online video sources and to post to this blog once a month. RevKess has since revised that plan. Postings of the Video Bonuses will be random and appear no less than once a month and no more often than once a week. The appearance of the series will depend on time and what RevKess comes across in his random searches for music and videos.
With the 8th episode of Musica Pagani (the reboot), RevKess soothed your soul and your senses with a selection of soft vocals and new age instrumentals from nine artists. Each one with a unique style and sound.
Annette Cantor, The Pure Heart Ensemble, and Lia Scallon add their beautiful instruments of voice to a stunning array of instrumentation. Al Conti’s Japanese flare and Fiona Joy Hawkins’ piano moves are sure to relax the mind. Brian Henke’s guitar strumming and the African rhythms of Hennie Bekker’s Temba will help regulate your pulse and breathing,. Me Bowles will add relaxation while Paradiso & Rasamayi’s unique healing sounds blend wonderfully with the spiritual healing of Lia Scallon.
