about

Zamru is the second solo work of multi-instrumentalist and singer Zach Mayer. It was recorded entirely during quarantine in Zach's own living room (and coat closet) in Boston, Massachusetts. This album is a full rendering of his inner musical mind, as each note on every instrument was played by him alone, including soprano and baritone saxophones, piano, kanjira drum, harmonium, keyboard and vocal harmonies.

Zach composed each of Zamru’s melodies in the morning, during his daily outdoor meditation practice in the park by his home. He felt a unique connective spark while channeling these songs into their current form, and can feel that same spark again whenever he sings them. May you too, feel the joyous spark of calm delight that is embedded in each of these melodies.
