Ace of Cups, the pioneering all-women band from the ‘60s San Francisco psychedelic scene, are back with Sing Your Dreams! Pre-order now!
Sing Your Dreams is the stunning new collection of 12 songs and stories and features collaborations with Jackson Browne, Sheila E. and the Escovedo Family, Bakithi Kumalo (whose iconic bass-playing was integral to the sound of Paul Simon’s Graceland), jam-band guitar luminary Steve Kimock, peace activist and counterculture icon Wavy Gravy, Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna), and David Freiberg (Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Starship).
“Jai Ma” is the lead single from Sing Your Dreams, the second album by the all-female, ‘60s psychedelic-rock pioneers Ace of Cups. With an irresistible transglobal groove and evocative lyrics celebrating the strength of the divine feminine spirit, the song features special guests Sheila E. and the Escovedo Family contributing fiery Latin percussion, Bakithi Kumalo (Paul Simon) on electric bass, and jam-band luminary Steve Kimock laying down shimmering Afropop guitar.
Ace of Cups’ Denise Kaufman explains: “’Jai Ma’ may be translated from Sanskrit as “Victory to the Divine Mother – the energy and power of all creation. May She triumph over all destructive forces within each of us and everywhere in this world.’ This is a song honoring, loving and exalting the Divine Feminine in all Her forms. It’s about taking back patriarchal stories from various traditions which demean the feminine. It’s about raising Her up and celebrating Her, celebrating love, sensuality and the juiciness of life.”
