A New Year and New Beginnings. Start your year off right with a little bit of sizzle or a little bit of mellow. New from Sounds True, some awesome musical CDs…come check them out on our listening displays and hear for yourself!
For those in need of a little sizzle, check out these great titles:
Bhakti Bazaar by Jai Uttal & Ben Leinbach is one of the best chant CDs I have heard in a while. In true Jai style, enjoy the rhythm and beat of passionate longing and ecstasy built into these lively, sacred chants. Each song is nearly 20 minutes and builds beautifully to crescendo and down again. Contributing to the album are such talents as singer Tina Malia and flutist Manose.
Rhythms of the Infinite by John de Kadt is a beautiful new addition for your favorite movement practice. Move from the mundane into the mystical with the beat of drum and the “mesmerizing melodies of sitar, esaraj, bansuri flute, voice, guitar, fretless bass, and the contemporary hang.” Get into the trance and freely express yourself!
For those in need of a little mellow in their lives, I recommend:
Crystal Bowl Meditation by Steve Sciulli (Life in Balance) offers a “vibratory journey into deep meditative states.” Experience a singing bowl CD with the added sound of flute, keyboard and synthesizer all geared to get you in sync and resonating with higher frequencies and greater potential.
Shakuhachi Water Meditations by Riley Lee is a fantastic new addition to the repertoire of Riley Lee. Lee is the first western Grand Master of the shakuhachi and has “gained international acclaim for his ability to express the meditative mind” in his music. Embrace the feel of water as you listen to this album and gain peace and serenity.
In case you missed hearing this awesome CD during the holidays, Songs of Mary by various artists is here to stay! A beautiful CD with devotional chants for Mary collected from different cultures around the world. A must own!
And back by popular demand, Kundalini Meditation Music, with artists such as Snatam Kaur, Mirabai Ceiba and Gurunam, this compilation of Kundalini music is both meditative and upbeat perfect for application in whatever activity you are participating.
Om Shanti & Happy New Year!
