Primal NAAD releases new single 'Breathe'


The Los Angeles social worker and musician known as Primal NAAD (Kiko Ellsworth) has released his new single, “Breathe.” The single is the latest and most significant musical release from Ellsworth to date. It has been released on the You Inspire Me, Inc. music record label, and is tied to a larger work from Ellsworth titled, “The Great Awakening.” An inspirational work of adroit musical positivism, “Breathe” by Primal NAAD is a spiritually aware track with an enervating back beat and solid hip-hop vocal delivery.

“Naad” is appreciated by the Hindu world as a form of musical yoga and translates directly as “sound.” Though his professional name is officially Primal NAAD, the artist is more easily located in the media and online as Kiko Ellsworth. Ellsworth cites as main artistic influences the likes of gentle legends such as Harry Belafonte, Bob Marley, Jim Morrison, and the East-Indian saint, Mahavatar Babaji. Babaji is most revered for his unallayed pursuit of self-realization.

Ellsworth recounts the beginning of his musical journey with something akin to Babaji's experiences.

“For months I was doing early morning yoga with meditation, breathing techniques and chanting,” writes Ellsworth. “Before I knew it, my voice changed and the creativity started flowing. The music came.”

Upon being asked to explain any inherent message his new single, “Breathe” might have in store for listeners, he communicates clearly and concisely.

“[My song is about] a new me. A new you. A new world. I believe all of our souls are fighting to make their way to the surface, to manifest truth. These musical sounds represent my Truth. I hope they will inspire you to keep aligning and fighting for yours.”

Kiko Ellsworth is a native of Los Angeles and never expected to be part of the entertainment industry. He is a well-known humanitarian and works to empower women and children who have been affected by domestic violence. He is the resident Self-Defense Coordinator of Safe Passage, a 501© 3 non-profit organization, helping the women that come there to rebuild their lives. He currently spearheads the “It’s Not Okay” campaign through Safe Passage.

Ellsworth describes his single as “spiritual hip hop for the conscious-minded individual.”

“Breathe” by Primal NAAD / Kiko Ellsworth is available online worldwide.
