In the rhythm of music, a secret is hidden. — Jelaleddin Rumi
Ancient World Music (One) is SEIKILO’s first compilation ever with eight remarkable songs performed by an amazing team of affiliate artists, including some of the greatest lyres players. This line-up is out of this world and is undoubtedly the best that SEIKILO Ancient World Music Channel had to offer at the time of this music album’s launch!

Support your beloved lyre players & musicians
^ In Classical Greece, the concept of support & guidance by a more experienced elder was prominent. In Ancient Rome, the support took many more forms, including financial. The latter became crucial for artists in medieval and Renaissance Europe. In James Barry's painting titled "The Education of Achilles," we see Achilles being guided by centaur Cheiron (oil on canvas, Yale Center for British Art). His patron Edmund Burke —an Anglo-Irish statesman and philosopher— played a crucial role in helping J. Barry keep creating masterpieces.

The Ones Who Matter the Most
From the ancient world onward, patrons of the arts played a key role in art history. With roots that go back to philia in Classical Greece and clientela in Ancient Rome, patrons gave the opportunity to great artists to survive and thrive in medieval and Renaissance Europe. The concept survived to this day, with whole communities acting as modern patrons or sponsors to single artists.
In the worldwide lyre community, there is a need to support the ones who matter the most, i.e., the ancient world artists who give voice to the lyre. And for that, we have to provide them with all the needed tools to share their music with the world: well-thought music video productions and premium music albums with supreme studio-quality audio.
Along with the SEIKILO Ancient World Music Channel, we have done that for years: covering all the expenses for great productions for ancient world music artists, helping them make a living from their music.
If you want to be part of that supportive community, this is your chance! For any music album you order, 100% of the income goes for new music videos and music album productions.
Be part of an ongoing legacy and make ancient world music accessible the way it should be: at its best.
