about

"Malachi Favors titled this album Sirius Calling before his death on January 31st, 2004. In the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, is the place where the soul goes after leaving the body. Ancient Egyptians believed Sirius's first ascent brought forth the annual flooding of the Nile, which marked the start of the growing season and so also was thought to symbolize renewal and reincarnation. Sirius Calling is dedicated to brother Malachi, whose spirit lives on in our music..."
