Masma Dream World is the solo recording project of multi-disciplinary artist/healer Devi Mambouka. According to the press release, Born to a Gabonese ambassador and a Singaporean mother, Devi (pronounced: day-vee), is a child of the world, and one who learned to tap into her inner magic to overcome trauma, abuse, and addiction.
Play At Night is the debut album which is out now via Northern Spy. It was recorded in four days—encompassing elements of butoh, theta frequency (which creates a trance state in the mind) and the need to hold sacred space.
The project is not only for the subconscious mind, but also serves as a call for those who are truly ready for change; those who are yearning for a new world. The ear will catch soundscapes she recorded from her travels to respective home countries—spaces that further awakened her connection to frequencies. The bass-heavy undertones of the album are an ode to Devi’s first audience when she began her musical journey—trees and the elements—as they too exist on a low frequency.
Play at Night is Devi’s intentional offering and token of thanks for those who’ve walked with her as she endured her own personal healing and shadow work. The album challenges your preconceived relationship with darkness, guiding you to step into it—to play in it.
