About Elika Mahony

My Music Journey

Welcome to my Patreon page.  My name is Elika Mahony and I’m a musician born in the US, raised in Kenya and now living in China. I started setting the Bahá’í Writings to music 20 years ago and it has been one of the greatest joys of my life.

My goal in creating music and other inspiring materials is to uplift souls and bring them closer to their Creator.  There is a healing power in music that nourishes the soul, and music has a wonderful way of connecting and unifying hearts.

My Albums
Over the course of the past twenty years I have released 11 albums on a variety of themes that are common to all our lives, including albums on tests and difficulties (Fire and Gold), detachment (Infinite Bounty), marriage (Birds of Love) and family life (Melodies of the Nightingale for the Family). I have also created music for the Bahá’í Fast (Meditations for the Fast).  

Most recently I created a trilogy of albums for the twin bicentenaries of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh and the Báb (The Ancient Beauty and The Exalted one) and the100th anniversary of the Ascension of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá (The Divine Mystery).
 
Creating these three albums has been one of the highlights of my musical career (such a unique and special time in history will never come again in our lifetime) and I am extremely grateful to my patrons who helped make it possible.

One particular love of mine is composing songs for Holy Days. Several years ago I recorded “Rejoice with Exceeding Gladness”, a song for the Festival of Ridvan sung in 6 languages with musicians and vocalists from around the world. We subsequently recorded individual language versions as well as an instrumental version (we now have over a dozen) so that more communities can have the song in their own mother tongue.

One of the most special pieces that I ever composed was the Long Healing Prayer (19 minutes long!). Many people around the world have shared with me how this song has brought solace to their hearts and to the hearts of family and friends.

In March 2021 I completed working on a global singalong 'Waves of One Sea' with 240 participants from 44 countries and regions sung in 6 languages. I hired musicians, a videographer, and a producer to put the song together.  I'm thrilled with the outcome of the song and I'm ever grateful to my Patrons for helping cover the costs of this epic project!

Other Creative Projects
When I'm not working on music, I love to design and create beautiful items that bring joy to people and enhance their spiritual experience. My current projects include making prayer beads from Chinese water pearls with matching Chinese clasps, silk prayer book covers, beaded bookmarks and hand made specialty cards from the Writings of Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.

Why Patreon?
In order to make my music available to the widest possible audience, many of my songs and accompanying videos can be listened to and downloaded for free from my website. However, although they are free there are in reality many expenses that go into creating them (paying musicians, studio time, costs for sound engineers, producers, videographers, CD design and packaging and more).

Patreon provides a way for friends who wish to support my music and to help make it available to others by making small regular monthly contributions that go to cover the many costs of producing high quality music. By 'Becoming a Patron', you can pledge an amount of your choosing on a monthly basis. You can, of course, change or cancel your pledge at any time.

As a thank you, you will be the first to receive a digital copy of the music I release (regardless of the contribution). I also look forward to keeping you up to date with the projects I am working on, sharing exclusive downloads and behind the scenes (download the Patreon app on your phone to see the behind-the-scenes that I often share).

My greatest hope is that my music and art will bring joy and upliftment to friends around the world.  

Thank you for all your kind support. I truly appreciate it.
