ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Meditation music unlike any you have ever heard,
\"Jewels of Silence\" quiets the mind and gently carries you into a state of deep rest and relaxation ... to the very center of stillness within your being.

Divinely inspired, transcendent music for healing, meditation, and deep relaxation, \"Jewels of Silence\" is an incomparably beautiful recording of great depth and exquisite sensitivity. Perfect music for the journey within ... for prayer, yoga, reiki, bodywork and rest, \"Jewels of Silence\" features Ashana\'s angelic vocal improvisations, crystal bowl playing and the vocal and keyboard artistry of Thomas Barquee, accompanied by bansoori flute, esraj and santoor.

With each successive track, the listener floats into deeper and deeper states of profound relaxation. The exquisite music, accompanied by the constant droning of the crystal bowls, shifts brainwave patterns almost immediately into alpha, theta or delta states, quieting the mind and supporting meditation, rest and dreaming.

Experience the healing sounds of this divine music …

- to deepen your prayer and meditation practices
- as an accompaniment to yoga, massage, bodywork and alternative healing modalities
- to relieve insomnia and sleep disorders
- to relieve anxiety, fear, stress, worry and depression
- during pre- and post-surgical experiences
- to heighten creativity and inspiration

A Message from Ashana and Thomas ...

The inspiration for Jewels of Silence came out of the many requests I have received over the years for a CD of my crystal singing bowl sound meditations. These meditations weave together prayer, guided visualization, color, toning, mantra and crystal singing bowls, on a journey of light and sound through the seven main energy centers in the body, commonly known as the chakras, moving upwards from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.

When Thomas and I first came together to record it was our intention to create something that evoked the feeling of this experience -- and being the artists that we are -- also to infuse it with beauty and music. Once we began, we simply opened up the space and allowed the sounds and music to come through. And so, of course, this CD took on a life of its own and became more than either one of us ever could have imagined.

It is our prayer that the gentle peace of \"Jewels Of Silence\" will help you go deep within so that you may rest in the quiet stillness of your being. We offer it from our hearts to yours, with gratitude and praise for the eternal light that shines in All.

Music to Balance and Clear the Chakras ...

At the heart of each piece in Jewels of Silence, the constant drone of crystal singing bowls can be heard, played and intoned with sacred chant and mantra. Beginning with the root chakra in the tonality of C and ending at the crown, in the tonality of B, the pieces move sequentially up the seven main energy centers of the body, through the seven degrees of the western musical scale. To deepen the meditative and healing effects, each piece also features seed sounds, or bija mantras, that are associated with these energy centers.


About the Artists:

In a world of abundant musical talents and the ever-expanding New Age music genre, Ashana emerges as a consummate artist of sound and healing with a style uniquely her own.

Weaving together soaring, angelic vocals in an exquisitely crafted, luminous sonic tapestry, Ashana\'s music, produced and co-written by renowned world music artist, Thomas Barquee, has been called \"a Gift from Heaven\" by New Age Retailer.

Classically trained, Ashana graduated with a degree in voice from the prestigious Mannes College of Music in New York City. For the last decade, she has been involved in a deeply personal exploration of sound healing and vocal toning, during which period she discovered and began playing quartz crystal singing bowls, instruments that are most often used in contemplative practices to support healing, balance and well-being.

As a world music pop artist, Thomas Barquee studied classical piano and composition in Germany and signed his first record deal as a pop singer/songwriter with Sony Music. He has released 7 albums in 42 countries. Barquee\'s music combines entertainment with spiritual healing and western with eastern elements. He believes that all religions have something in common. As a producer, Barquee helps other artists find their own true voice, and has worked with many, including Snatam Kaur, Seal, Lamont Dozier and Olivia D’Abo.

Ashana and Thomas\' first musical collaboration, \"All Is Forgiven\", received international critical acclaim for its breathtaking beauty and the profound healing qualities of the music. In the hands of these two outstanding musicians, sacred vocal music and crystal sound come together, enfolding the listener in a transcendent experience of the Divine.


“After the exquisite beauty of “All is Forgiven,” Ashana’s debut recording,
be prepared to be carried away to some of the most divine spaces you can imagine. “
— Backroads Music

"Ashana has put that internal experience of the vibration of creation into a recording. Imagine that. But Ashana’s Jewels of Silence is not an album of sacred music. It’s not even really a meditation album. It is a vibrational experience of your own Infinity, a musical dance with your own Soul."
-- Spirit Voyage Music

Jewels Of Silence
This is true meditation music - from the heart calling hearts. Jewels of Silence has a beautiful alchemy of stopping me with an invitation to open my heart to Silence - to fall into Forever. I whole heartedly recommend - give yourself a gift that opens the heart.

Greg Schneider

Ashana and Thomas\' music first opens your heart and then gently guides you deep into the realm of spirit through the angelic combination of her celestial voice and resonating crystal bowls. The Jewels of Silence utilizes this exquisite combination to effortlessly guide you on a tranquil journey to the depths of your soul. The beauty of this CD is its simplicity – while the mind is gradually taken deeper and deeper into silence with each successive track, your consciousness is taken to higher realms within.

I use this every night for Meditation. It is as though you are lifted above the clouds and somehere in the Universe. Just Flying and Floating above !! I \'am so far beyond common Realms that I cannot see below, so I continue on flying above with my guides. This beautiful Creation that Ashana and Thomas have brought for us to feast on, Massages our Brain, Spirit and our Soul. The vibrations that this creates on an inner-level, is so Profound. Ashana and Thomas, your Angels, Guides and Teachers must really be smiling down so Greatly upon you.. This is an Astounding compilation of the True Example of \" Jewels of Silence\" !!!
