ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Falling Awake', Kirtana's latest CD, has just been released. As is the case with her other CDs, 'Falling Awake' could be described as 'Music for Awakening' or 'Contemporary Sacred'. In Kirtana's own words, the best description for both her music and her purpose in sharing it is to "celebrate divine love and the truth of who we are."

Here is a review from Steve Ryals:

"Whenever I hear Kirtana sing, I feel as though a warm, jasmine-scented spring wind had begun blowing through my heart. I am so grateful to have been listening to and reviewing her music for nearly 13 years. Each time Kirtana brings out a new album, I am amazed, thinking that she has, once again, jumped straight into the heart of God. Now, with the release of Falling Awake, once again I am delighted to say that Kirtana has created her very best work yet (and that's saying something, given the extraordinary body of work she already has). The music is gorgeous, and her lyrics are transcendently heart-opening. What a gift Kirtana is to this world.

For those of you who have yet to experience the sublime grace of Kirtana's music, let me just say that she is a singer-songwriter of vast spiritual depth. Her voice has the ability to open and caress the most broken of hearts. She plays the guitar and ukulele with unobtrusive excellence, writing songs that delight on every level. Her compositions are filled with such love that I find myself transported, again and again, into a light-filled arena where there is only peace. The musicians who accompany Kirtana play piano, cello, violin, bass, drums, keyboards, percussion and some backing vocals with an exquisite artistry that serves to showcase the brilliant jewels of Falling Awake.

Though every single track on Falling Awake is well worth your undivided attention, I want to mention a couple of the songs in particular. "Home" is an honoring song, appreciating those who, in spite of having gone through times of great trauma, are able to shine from their core of unconditional love. Bruce Roscoe's violin especially touches my heart, as it does on "A Peaceful World," perhaps my favorite Kirtana song to date. Her clear-eyed look at the world as it is, with all its suffering and chaos, brings tears every time I hear it. For those wanting devotional music at its most sacred, be sure to treat your heart soon to Falling Awake."

Falling Awake
Another creative call to consciousness, Falling Awake continues and deepens the heritage of Kirtana's music. With candid, heartfel sharing of her own spiritaul journey, Kirtana enlightens ours.

I just wrote a review for "a deeper surrender" which was meant for "falling awake".

Beautiful
Kirtana's songs are some of the most beautiful spiritual messages I have ever heard. I have had powerful transformative experiences while listening to her music. I could not wait for this new album and bought it the day it came out. The more I listen to it (and I listen to it a lot!) the deeper it touches me. I consider Kirtana to be one of my greatest spiritual teachers and her music to be a great blessing.

Dale Parker

Pretty good
I loved all of Kirtana's CD's. Fall Awake is very good. Especially the song, "Fall Awake," and "Ramama's Song." The re-working of Sweet Streams from her Healing Rain album is not as "deep" as it is on Healing Rain. Just glad she's still writing and singing this 'awareness.' Thanks, Kirtana

Falling awake
I first heard Kirtana's songs while attending Brandon Bays journey events ,since then I have bought every one of her albums..I am transported to other realms when I play her music..what can I say about her latest album, falling awake.It is sublimly beautiful ,everyone of the songs is extrordinary but the two which make me weep every time are sweet streams and Ramana,s song.Thank you Kirtana

Martin Wolff

Excellent album
"Falling Awake" is another step in Kirtana's musical and spiritual sharing. I found it to get deeper as the album went on, the second half of the album being sublimely beautiful.

The musicians playing with Kirtana (and the backing vocals also) are wonderful and the blend between voice and instruments is exquistely balanced.

Kirtana's voice is not a shpw-stopping type; it is her sincerity and authenticity that wins you over. And her lyrics have no abstract quality about them, but are direct to the Heart of the matter. My congratulations to Kirtana for a beautiful and meaningful album!

Excellent uplifting CD
“Falling Awake” by musical veteran Kirtana is a refreshing, soul-pacifying collection of easy-listening/new-age tunes. “The Train Song” provides an excellent presentation of Kirtana’s heart-felt vocal performances. Her soft, airy, and smooth timbre successfully passes on a mood of tranquility and peace. The piano-driven “Home” urges listeners to look within to find innocence, and to not define their self-worth by the words of another or even their own mood. Kirtana consistently treats listeners to motivational and spiritual lyrics that encourage healing and freedom from pain. Unencumbered production provides a perfect musical atmosphere for these songs, allowing Kirtana’s angelic voice and the accompanying instruments to shine in their true beauty. If you enjoy inspirational, spiritual, new age, or easy-listening songs, “Falling Awake” should be at the top of your to-buy list!
