    We really appreciate your interest in our music. We have committed to offering our music for $0 for downloading the album because we know not everyone has a credit card or job, and therefore may not be able to afford our music. We would prefer you to have it.
    If you do have regular income and are able to spare a few dollars for a download, without experiencing hardship, then we would be very happy. We still have some unmet costs to cover from this album. We released this album without the assistance of any financial grant. We were able to make this release happen with the generosity of Benni Kreuger, a fund-raising show, a lot of commitment and a successful Pozible crowd-funding project.
    Thank you

SENDAM has been a hidden secret really, a flourishing and developing group of unrealised musicians who were spending their time at a day centre that provided a safe and non-judgmental space for folk who have past or current experiences of mental illness. There's a more detail history below for your additional information.

For five years, almost every Friday, SENDAM meet's, set's up the equipment - always percussion but often never the same arrangement, and launches into uncharted musical territory. The attendance has always been voluntary, any contribution accepted, to fully immerse in the music-making or to gently sit and watch, it is all considered part of the group. Talking with words can sometimes be too hard, but to converse in sound, to watch and respond, to gently observe and help tease out a yet-unrealised blossoming confidence is a delightful way to pass the time

The music is predominantly drums and percussion, but now with the addition of guitars, piano, lyric writers, and spontaneous dance the scope continues to expand. The compositions are dynamic improvisations on top of some generally agreed structure, always the music shifts into unexpected, and often brilliant, domain.
