Mantra by Existence
Nine contemporary world music compositions
based on ancient Mantras from all over the World
Discover with Margot Reisinger and her multi cultural project "Existence" a new and powerful
interpretation of chant and prayer.
Singers and musicians from Nepal, Algeria, Tibet, Poland, Morocco and Portugal have contributed
their cultural background to Margot Reisinger's own style of spiritual world music.
Margot has composed nine unique songs on the base of traditional as well as newly arranged mantra texts,
interpreted by beautiful vocals and accompanied by choirs, violin, ney, flutes, guitars, piano, sitar,
Tibetan horns and cymbals, keyboards, singing bowls, percussion, monochord, drums and more.
Mantras are truly a source of divine energy.
Timeless sacred words and tunes that change the climate of the mind
and help to move inwards to the source of love and healing.
Manifold are the teachings and rituals of the different spiritual and religious traditions of the world.
Yet, if we look beyond the variety of names and forms there is one Essence behind, uniting and including all and everything:
God, Life, Spirit, Soul, the Self - however we may call it.
This album explores this essence of Mantra and prayer on a journey through the world.
Om Mani Padme Hum (Buddhism), Gayatri Mantra (Hinduism), Sancta Maria (Christianism),
Hevenu Shalom Aleichem (Judaism), Allah Hay (Islam) -
familiar phrases performed in a new, deeply touching way that stay in the mind and in the heart,
even when the CD has stopped playing long ago.
Spiritual world music of finest quality!
