Not listened to these yet...

Here's some blurb from Bandcamp about these two tracks...
"PRANA": "Jimmy Chamberlin and Shaman Durek take you into the Amazon. Guided by your animal spirit and world-class, rhythmic drumming, you will experience a breathtaking adventure that will bring you into the underworld on a unique and mind opening journey."
"Jimmy Chamberlin and Shaman Durek collaborate to create a mesmerizing shamanistic experience."
"PINDA": "Jimmy Chamberlin and Shaman Durek invite you into the temple, connecting you to your ancestors and loved ones on the other side. Drums and bells take you on this journey of reunion.
Jimmy Chamberlin and Shaman Durek collaborate to help you connect with ancestors and loved ones. "

Jimmy Chamberlin Guided to Leave Smashing Pumpkins...

(Picture: A Shaman plays a drum [not Shaman Durek])

In a profile of Shaman Durek in Metrosource Magazine, Chamberlin is interviewed and recounts being guided to leave the Smashing Pumpkins, back in 2009...
"...Durek was the one that took me aside and said, ‘Look, there’s nothing to be afraid of; only good will come out of this,’” says Chamberlin. Since then, Chamberlin feels he has more balance in his life."  
Thanks to HU for the heads-up.
