WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS CD?
Few CD's feature such a delicious blend of traditional sacred mantras, gorgeous melodies, and rich world instrumentation. There are no filler songs. None. Every song is rock solid, and will carry you gracefully into the world of kirtan (yoga chanting). This ancient tradition of call-response chanting offers to connect you to your divine inner being, to awaken and enlighten you. This CD was awarded 4th place for "Best Asian/Ethnic Album 2004" by JFP, largest international music awards in the world!
ABOUT THE CD & ITS ARTISTS:
In this CD, MICHAEL KASHOU (recorded with Garbage on their platinum debut CD), anchors the songs with his phenomenal fretless bass and adds delightful textures to songs with the rhythms of his riqq and Arabic tabla. Mike has played and recorded for two solid decades with many prominent musicians, such as Paul Cebar, Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes), Swamp Thing, and John Kruth, among others. He is frequently heard playing at Summerfest, the world's largest music festival, where he's a prize pick among bass players.
Playing tabla for this album, GIRISH GAMBHIRA has performed and recorded with many top artists/producers in the world/new age genre, including Glen Ballard (Dave Matthews Band, Alanis Morrisette), Michael Brook (Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Youssou N'Dour), Lucas Arts, Rasa, Krishna Das, Axiom of Choice, Robert Gass, Lost at Last, Dave Stringer, Donna Delory, Wah, David Hykes, and Steve Gordon, among others.
TERRY VITTONE brought his guitar talents to the kirtan world with this album. Terry's experience includes fronting a pop band, Bitter Pleasures, which toured extensively with acts including Mink DeVille and The Producers. As a sideman for John Seiger and Semi-Twang, he performed live with Paul Cebar (Montreal and New Orleans Jazz Festivals, the Mountain Stage and "What Do You Know" radio shows, and national tours with Robert Cray and the BoDeans). Terry's songs have been covered by the House of Blues artist Paul Black, the gospel quartet Masonic Wonders, and jazz singer Donna Woodall, and he has licensed his songs for film and television.
