"This is a love song.
Maria sings to the listener of love, recovery and prosperity, chasing away evil and welcoming love.
The piece contains a quotation of some lines of “Hávamál”, combined with a selection of blessing
words meant to provide help to the listener in a troubled time.

Kai brought his part back to us after a month of isolation, fasting and meditation in nature. Only
the spirits know the full meaning, but we do know that the context is love, prosperity and

The sonic composition of this song is made up of very basic elements and consists of body sounds, drums, leaves, straw-brooms, bowed lyre and vocals. Asja is Heilung’s take on a more traditional folk song.

We would expect the pre-Christian people of Northern Europe to have perceived this as a magic
song: performed with intent as an entity with its own power and agenda, which, once summoned
through sound, follows its design and creates the desired outcome.

This is our voice being sent out there with the intent to heal and bring progress and prosperity."

'Asja' is composed, written, created and performed by Kai Uwe Faust, Christopher Juul, Maria Franz and our ancestors. The song is produced, mixed and mastered by Christopher Juul at Lava Studios Copenhagen

Heilung is Amplified History from early medieval northern Europe and should not be mistaken for a modern political or religious statement of any kind.

Remember, that we all are brothers
All people, beasts, trees and stone and wind
We all descend from the one great being
That was always there
Before people lived and named it
Before the first seed sprouted
