At the end of last year, Sarah Class’ album ‘Natural High’ was used as the soundtrack to World Land Trust’s epic campaign to save the last 2% of Equador’s Choco Forest. They surpassed their target of £600,00.00 and claimed that the music was instrumental in raising the funds.
The album Natural High is a joyful and reverential tribute to the powerful magic of nature and miracle of life. There are many layers to the natural world. Those we perceive with human eyes to be beautiful or awe inspiring, or intrinsically feel we need to protect or even be fearful of, are perhaps only touching the surface of its extraordinary qualities. Nature is also working behind the scenes affecting us on an entirely different plane.
“Our relationship with Nature is powerfully symbiotic. Nature sustains us and it has the ability to move and heal us, to energise and uplift us. Nature’s voice speaks to us on every level. It is a living organism with a heart-beat, a soul and molecular memory, just like human life.”
Beyond Nature’s physical manifestation, Sarah believes there is a powerful spiritual vibration existing in multi layers. It is this version of Nature – its heavenly imprint, which is “channelled” into the music of Natural High.
Scientists know that Nature is proven to de-stress us, but equally they are aware this is not the full explanation. As scientist and cognitive psychologist David Strayer says, “something mysterious will always remain”.
Sarah says, “Natural High is also about Unity – the unifying God of all things and the connection between us and Nature. Our place within the natural world is not a separated one. We are of each other.”
The album explores Nature’s euphoric diversity through the ethereal lens. Through waterfalls, rivers, holy wells and more, each track aligns with various Nature deities from myths and legends of different cultures.
Sarah is also Ambassador for the World Land Trust. Sir David Attenborough, Sir Chris Packham and Steve Backshall are also patrons. The charity has saved and protected nearly a million acres of rainforest and other habits over the past 45 years. Sir David even made an appearance on Sarah’s music video ‘I Will Fight’.
