"Maz" is a word invented by Ursula K. Le Guin, in her novel, "The Telling." It essentially means "The Two That Are One." The maz are couples who, through a Oneness of the Heart, keep culture and community alive and nurtured through story, music, ritual, remembering, and love.
Daveed and Shunya Caban are one of these maz couples. From the strong foundation of their love, they offer these medicine songs.
Their music could be described as Mystic-Tribal-Folk-Groove. It combines many-layered vocals and instruments from around the world.
