Jhené Aiko Dabbles in Sound Therapy With New Album 'Chilombo'

Crystal alchemy singing bowls are featured throughout the new release.

R&B star Jhené Aiko has released her third albumChilombo, a word that translates to “wild beast” and is also Aiko’s legal surname. The 20-track release sees Aiko experiment with sound therapy through the use of crystal alchemy singing bowls, which create resonant tones when struck with a mallet, throughout.

In an interview with Billboard, Aiko explained how her use of singing bowls is meant to activate different chakras in the body. For example, the song “P*$$Y Fairy (OTW)” features Aiko playing a singing bowl in the key of D — “D corresponds with your second chakra, which governs your sexual organs below your navel and your hips. So even though the song is fun and sexy, there’s an actual healing instrument in there to help balance you out in those areas.” she said. In addition to the use of sound therapy, Chilombo also boasts an extensive roster of collaborators including Future, H.E.R., Nas and Aiko’s father, Dr. Chill.
