In this CD, the gently flowing sounds of sitar with treble and bass tamboura, have been derived from the ancient music of India. These sounds have an integrating quality for the body and mind, and hence are most conducive for hatha yoga practice, and are also beneficial for meditation, deep relaxation or body work.
The music has a slow and gradual build up for easing into yoga practice. It continues at a steady pace until the end when it gradually slows down to enhance deep relaxation.
Musical sounds have a natural harmony between them. When combined in a specific manner, they have a dynamic and astounding effect in balancing the energies of the body. Therefore, the arrangement of tones for different times of day, night and seasons, and how they relate with the changing states of body chemistry, are integral components of this music.
The sound forms recorded in this album have been derived from the music of ancient India. They are arranged to help yoga practitioners connect with and become aware of their bodies at the deepest levels. Above all, these sounds promote our perception of the greater harmony among all things, and open the door to a deeper level of physical and spiritual awareness and transformation.
This music is based on an ancient natural scale principle of ‘just intonation’ derived from the harmonic series.
IN ORDER TO PRESERVE AND RETAIN TONAL PURITY, NO SYNTHESIZED SOUNDS WERE USED IN THIS RECORDING.
