another band using a conlang

The musical group Prince Rama dabbles in conlangery/glossolalia.

From an article found online: “I kind of invented my own language in the process of making this record,” Taraka explains over the phone from outside a Cracker Barrel in Virginia… “I’d start experimenting with just letting syllables come out and seeing what happened.” The second cut from Trust Now, ‘Summer of Love’ (for which the official video was shot at a Hare Krishna temple on Comm Ave) starts out in Sanskrit, moves to English, and then into her invented language.
