Every Synergy Live show on the fifth and sixth leg of tours were sold out. On the sixth leg of Synergy in April , Gavin Knight and Richard Sharpe joined as the live drummer and keyboardist for the Shamen respectively.
In May , with the increased popularity of their band, Will Sin decided to release an EP entitled "U Make Me Feel" with an unknown female singer under the pseudonym Elsi Curry, and it was released as a promotional record.
But as I came to terms with it and thought about the situation I realised that what the Shamen was about was positivity and that positivity is like the spirit of the music and positivity acknowledges the need for change.
So for those reasons I elected to carry on and also I knew that the name Shamen really meant a lot to Will and that was one of the main attractions for joining the band for him.
In July , Plavka Lonich chose to leave the band, because she was planning to start on her solo career. With Mr.
C now a full-time member of the Shamen, and Jhelisa Anderson who was chosen to replace Plavka providing guest vocals, the Boss Drum album followed in Despite — or maybe because of — the subsequent storm of publicity, the song reached the top of the UK Singles Chart and stayed there for four weeks.
Subsequent singles such as "Boss Drum" and "Phorever People" were chart hits, and they were voted "Best New Act" by Radio 1 listeners at the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party in , but after the unexpected success of "Ebeneezer Goode" some long-term fans believed they paled in comparison to earlier singles.
It was however impossible for the band to fully escape the shadow that Sinnot's untimely exit had cast across them. At a time and in a scene when performers were often both masked and anonymous, the emerging early s dance music world had lost one of its more notable personalities.
Early special editions of this album featured a bonus disk, Arbor Bona Arbor Mala , an experimental ambient album. Always seeking to push out musical and communication boundaries, the Shamen saw themselves as an information band.
Their Internet site Nemeton  was amongst the first British music sites to host unique Web based events, e.
The Shamen continued recording into the late s, releasing two additional LPs with an increasingly experimental bent. Their penultimate studio album, the instrumental Hempton Manor , followed an acrimonious split with their label One Little Indian.
It is alleged to have been recorded in seven days to conclude the recording contract with One Little Indian, and the first letter of each track spells out "Fuck Birket", referring to label founder Derek Birket , who wanted the group to move back into more commercial territory.

There is no single agreed-upon definition for the word "shamanism" among anthropologists. The English historian Ronald Hutton noted that by the dawn of the 21st century, there were four separate definitions of the term which appeared to be in use.
The first of these uses the term to refer to "anybody who contacts a spirit world while in an altered state of consciousness. The third definition attempts to distinguish shamans from other magico-religious specialists who are believed to contact spirits, such as " mediums ", " witch doctors ", "spiritual healers" or "prophets," by claiming that shamans undertake some particular technique not used by the others.
Problematically, scholars advocating the third view have failed to agree on what the defining technique should be. The fourth definition identified by Hutton uses "shamanism" to refer to the Indigenous religions of Siberia and neighboring parts of Asia.
The term "shamanism" was first applied by Western anthropologists as outside observers of the ancient religion of the Turks and Mongols , as well as those of the neighbouring Tungusic - and Samoyedic -speaking peoples.
Upon observing more religious traditions across the world, some Western anthropologists began to also use the term in a very broad sense.
The term was used to describe unrelated magico-religious practices found within the ethnic religions of other parts of Asia, Africa, Australasia and even completely unrelated parts of the Americas, as they believed these practices to be similar to one another.
Each Nation and tribe has its own way of life, and uses terms in their own languages. Shamans are said to treat ailments and illnesses by mending the soul.
Alleviating traumas affecting the soul or spirit are believed to restore the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness. Shamans also claim to enter supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the community.
Shamans claim to visit other worlds or dimensions to bring guidance to misguided souls and to ameliorate illnesses of the human soul caused by foreign elements.
Shamans operate primarily within the spiritual world, which, they believe, in turn affects the human world. The restoration of balance is said to result in the elimination of the ailment.
Shamanism is a system of religious practice. Shamanism is especially associated with the Native Peoples of Siberia in northern Asia, where shamanic practice has been noted for centuries by Asian and Western visitors.
It centered on the belief in supernatural phenomenon such as the world of gods, demons, and ancestral spirits. Despite structural implications of colonialism and imperialism that have limited the ability of Indigenous Peoples to practice traditional spiritualities, many communities are undergoing resurgence through self-determination  and the reclamation of dynamic traditions.
Shamans often claim to have been called through dreams or signs. However, some say their powers are inherited. In traditional societies shamanic training varies in length, but generally takes years.
Turner and colleagues  mention a phenomenon called "shamanistic initiatory crisis", a rite of passage for shamans-to-be, commonly involving physical illness or psychological crisis.
The significant role of initiatory illnesses in the calling of a shaman can be found in the detailed case history of Chuonnasuan , who was the last master shaman among the Tungus peoples in Northeast China.
The wounded healer is an archetype for a shamanic trial and journey. This process is important to young shamans. They undergo a type of sickness that pushes them to the brink of death.
This is said to happen for two reasons:. Though the importance of spiritual roles in many cultures cannot be overlooked, the degree to which such roles are comparable and even classifiable under one term is questionable.
In fact, scholars have argued that such universalist classifications paint Indigenous societies as primitive while exemplifying the civility of Western societies.
Most shamans have dreams or visions that convey certain messages. Shamans may claim to have or have acquired many spirit guides , who they believe guide and direct them in their travels in the spirit world.
These spirit guides are always thought to be present within the shaman, although others are said to encounter them only when the shaman is in a trance.
The spirit guide energizes the shamans, enabling them to enter the spiritual dimension. Shamans claim to heal within the communities and the spiritual dimension by returning lost parts of the human soul from wherever they have gone.
Shamans also claim to cleanse excess negative energies, which are said to confuse or pollute the soul. Shamans act as mediators in their cultures.
Shamans believe they can communicate with both living and dead to alleviate unrest, unsettled issues, and to deliver gifts to the spirits.
Among the Selkups , the sea duck is a spirit animal. Ducks fly in the air and dive in the water and are thus believed to belong to both the upper world and the world below.
The lower world or "world below" is the afterlife primarily associated with animals and is believed to be accessed by soul journeying through a portal in the earth.
Shamans perform a variety of functions depending upon their respective cultures;  healing,   leading a sacrifice ,  preserving traditions by storytelling and songs,  fortune-telling ,  and acting as a psychopomp "guide of souls".
The functions of a shaman may include either guiding to their proper abode the souls of the dead which may be guided either one-at-a-time or in a group, depending on the culture , and the curing of ailments.
The ailments may be either purely physical afflictions—such as disease, which are claimed to be cured by gifting, flattering, threatening, or wrestling the disease-spirit sometimes trying all these, sequentially , and which may be completed by displaying a supposedly extracted token of the disease-spirit displaying this, even if "fraudulent", is supposed to impress the disease-spirit that it has been, or is in the process of being, defeated so that it will retreat and stay out of the patient's body , or else mental including psychosomatic afflictions—such as persistent terror, which is likewise believed to be cured by similar methods.
In most languages a different term other than the one translated "shaman" is usually applied to a religious official leading sacrificial rites "priest" , or to a raconteur "sage" of traditional lore; there may be more of an overlap in functions with that of a shaman , however, in the case of an interpreter of omens or of dreams.
There are distinct types of shamans who perform more specialized functions. For example, among the Nani people , a distinct kind of shaman acts as a psychopomp.
These roles vary among the Nenets , Enets , and Selkup shamans. The assistant of an Oroqen shaman called jardalanin , or "second spirit" knows many things about the associated beliefs.
He or she accompanies the rituals and interprets the behaviors of the shaman. For this interpretative assistant, it would be unwelcome to fall into a trance.
Among the Tucano people , a sophisticated system exists for environmental resources management and for avoiding resource depletion through overhunting.
This system is conceptualized mythologically and symbolically by the belief that breaking hunting restrictions may cause illness.
As the primary teacher of tribal symbolism, the shaman may have a leading role in this ecological management, actively restricting hunting and fishing.
The shaman is able to "release" game animals, or their souls, from their hidden abodes. The way shamans get sustenance and take part in everyday life varies across cultures.
In many Inuit groups, they provide services for the community and get a "due payment", [ who? Since it obliges the shaman to use his gift and to work regularly in this capacity, the spirit rewards him with the goods that it receives.
They are not enough to enable a full-time shaman. Shamans live like any other member of the group, as a hunter or housewife.
Due to the popularity of ayahuasca tourism in South America, there are practitioners in areas frequented by backpackers who make a living from leading ceremonies.
There are many variations of shamanism throughout the world, but several common beliefs are shared by all forms of shamanism. Common beliefs identified by Eliade  are the following:.
As Alice Kehoe  notes, Eliade's conceptualization of shamans produces a universalist image of Indigenous cultures, which perpetuates notions of the dead or dying Indian  as well as the noble savage.
Shamanism is based on the premise that the visible world is pervaded by invisible forces or spirits which affect the lives of the living.
Commonly, a shaman "enters the body" of the patient to confront the spiritual infirmity and heals by banishing the infectious spirit.
Many shamans have expert knowledge of medicinal plants native to their area, and an herbal treatment is often prescribed. In many places shamans learn directly from the plants, harnessing their effects and healing properties, after obtaining permission from the indwelling or patron spirits.
In the Peruvian Amazon Basin, shamans and curanderos use medicine songs called icaros to evoke spirits. Before a spirit can be summoned it must teach the shaman its song.
Such practices are presumably very ancient. Plato wrote in his Phaedrus that the "first prophecies were the words of an oak", and that those who lived at that time found it rewarding enough to "listen to an oak or a stone, so long as it was telling the truth".
Other societies assert all shamans have the power to both cure and kill. Those with shamanic knowledge usually enjoy great power and prestige in the community, but they may also be regarded suspiciously or fearfully as potentially harmful to others.
By engaging in their work, a shaman is exposed to significant personal risk as shamanic plant materials can be toxic or fatal if misused.
Spells are commonly used in an attempt to protect against these dangers, and the use of more dangerous plants is often very highly ritualized.
Generally, shamans traverse the axis mundi and enter the "spirit world" by effecting a transition of consciousness, entering into an ecstatic trance, either autohypnotically or through the use of entheogens or ritual performances.
An entheogen "generating the divine within"  is a psychoactive substance used in a religious , shamanic, or spiritual context.
Examples of traditional entheogens include: peyote ,  psilocybin and Amanita muscaria fly agaric mushrooms,  uncured tobacco ,  cannabis ,  ayahuasca ,  Salvia divinorum ,  iboga ,  and Mexican morning glory.
Some shamans observe dietary or customary restrictions particular to their tradition. These restrictions are more than just cultural. For example, the diet followed by shamans and apprentices prior to participating in an ayahuasca ceremony includes foods rich in tryptophan a biosynthetic precursor to serotonin as well as avoiding foods rich in tyramine , which could induce hypertensive crisis if ingested with MAOIs such as are found in ayahuasca brews as well as abstinence from alcohol or sex.
Entheogens have a substantial history of commodification, especially in the realm of spiritual tourism. For instance, countries such as Brazil and Peru have faced an influx of tourists since the psychedelic era beginning in the late s, initiating what has been termed "ayahuasca tourism.
Just like shamanism itself,  music and songs related to it in various cultures are diverse. In several instances, songs related to shamanism are intended to imitate natural sounds , via onomatopoeia.
Sound mimesis in various cultures may serve other functions not necessarily related to shamanism: practical goals such as luring game in the hunt;  or entertainment Inuit throat singing.
There are two major frameworks among cognitive and evolutionary scientists for explaining shamanism. The first, proposed by anthropologist Michael Winkelman, is known as the "neurotheological theory".
In particular, the trance states induced by dancing, hallucinogens, and other triggers are hypothesized to have an "integrative" effect on cognition, allowing communication among mental systems that specialize in theory of mind , social intelligence, and natural history.
The neurotheological theory contrasts with the "by-product" or "subjective" model of shamanism developed by Harvard anthropologist Manvir Singh.
As specialists compete to help their clients control these outcomes, they drive the evolution of psychologically compelling magic, producing traditions adapted to people's cognitive biases.
Shamanism, Singh argues, is the culmination of this cultural evolutionary process—a psychologically appealing method for controlling uncertainty.
For example, some shamanic practices exploit our intuitions about humanness: Practitioners use trance and dramatic initiations to seemingly become entities distinct from normal humans and thus more apparently capable of interacting with the invisible forces believed to oversee important outcomes.
Influential cognitive and anthropological scientists such as Pascal Boyer and Nicholas Humphrey have endorsed Singh's approach,   although other researchers have criticized Singh's dismissal of individual- and group-level benefits.
David Lewis-Williams explains the origins of shamanic practice, and some of its precise forms, through aspects of human consciousness evinced in cave art and LSD experiments alike.
Gerardo Reichel-Dolmatoff relates these concepts to developments in the ways that modern science systems theory, ecology, new approaches in anthropology and archeology treats causality in a less linear fashion.
Shamanic practices may originate as early as the Paleolithic , predating all organized religions,   and certainly as early as the Neolithic period.
Sanskrit scholar and comparative mythologist Michael Witzel proposes that all of the world's mythologies, and also the concepts and practices of shamans, can be traced to the migrations of two prehistoric populations: the " Gondwana " type of circa 65, years ago and the " Laurasian " type of circa 40, years ago.
In November , researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem announced the discovery of a 12,year-old site in Israel that is perceived as one of the earliest-known shaman burials.
The elderly woman had been arranged on her side, with her legs apart and folded inward at the knee.
Ten large stones were placed on the head, pelvis, and arms. Among her unusual grave goods were 50 complete tortoise shells, a human foot, and certain body parts from animals such as a cow tail and eagle wings.
Other animal remains came from a boar, leopard, and two martens. The grave was one of at least 28 graves at the site, located in a cave in lower Galilee and belonging to the Natufian culture , but is said to be unlike any other among the Epipaleolithic Natufians or in the Paleolithic period.
A debated etymology of the word "shaman" is "one who knows",   implying, among other things, that the shaman is an expert in keeping together the multiple codes of the society, and that to be effective, shamans must maintain a comprehensive view in their mind which gives them certainty of knowledge.
Meanings may be manifested in objects such as amulets. There are also semiotic , theoretical approaches to shamanism,    and examples of "mutually opposing symbols" in academic studies of Siberian lore, distinguishing a "white" shaman who contacts sky spirits for good aims by day, from a "black" shaman who contacts evil spirits for bad aims by night.
Analogously to the way grammar arranges words to express meanings and convey a world, also this formed a cognitive map. Armin Geertz coined and introduced the hermeneutics ,  or "ethnohermeneutics",  interpretation.
Shamanism is believed to be declining around the world, possibly due to other organized religious influences, like Christianity, that want people who practice shamanism to convert to their own system and doctrine.
Another reason is Western views of shamanism as primitive, superstitious, backward and outdated. Whalers who frequently interact with Inuit tribes are one source of this decline in that region.
In many areas, former shamans ceased to fulfill the functions in the community they used to, as they felt mocked by their own community,  or regarded their own past as deprecated and were unwilling to talk about it to ethnographers.
