From the recording Winds Of Samsara

Accented by fluid contributions from New York pianist and composer Michael Gallant, “Higher” is an ode to positivity, progress, and resilience. Through layers of vocals and strings, flute and percussion, the piece swells with forward-moving energy and a drive to, in Kej’s words, “find hope even when it appears there is none.”
