About Rick Hamouris

My sister, Deborah Hamouris, and I made "Welcome to Annwfn" available in 1986 as a cassette tape. The first 7500 copies benefitted the Forever Forests project (a reforestation effort) in Northern California. Since then we have kept the flame alive by providing a digitally mastered CD version of the original analog tape.
I have been approached by the Women's Film Board of Canada, Findhorn Press and many others asking permission to use "We Are a Circle" in recordings, films, songbooks, public and private gatherings and have always given it at no charge. I've been told that there are Diannic circles in Germany that regularly use "We Are a Circle" to open their celebrations, cast their circles. I've also heard stories of 5000 women at a gathering in Canada processing into their circle while singing the song and holding candles. The night was alight with energy. I've also been told that over 5 million people worldwide now use this chant on a regular basis. There's a school in Africa which uses the chorus of the chant to generate relationship between the orphan children of disparate tribes.
In the early days of The Circle That Dares Not Speak It's Name, ( just after I wrote "We Are a Circle") we were lying on a hillside staring into the universe and awaiting a message... just in case somebody was speaking, we were providing a listening. I got a very clear message and her voice said simply "Make your music available to as many people as possible" and so I had my vocation. This was WAY before the internet, so it's been catch as catch can ever since.
The original dream of becoming a rock n roll star has pretty much faded into obscurity and it's time to put everything, including the 'garage' tapes of my bands someplace where they can be found and covered by the next music megastar :)... or simply enjoyed for what they are. That's where YOU come in. All I want to do is have enough to finish up the reconstruction of my studio so I can transcribe all those various tapes to digital. You can partner with me to fulfill this calling with just a few clickety-click-clicks. I think we've designed some nifty promotions for you, so this should be a Win-Win-Win all around. Thank you for your support!
