ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Benjy and Heather Wertheimer, also known as the musical duo Shantala, lead devotional chanting for workshops and at yoga centers across the U.S. and in Costa Rica.

Benjy Wertheimer, a founding member of the internationally acclaimed Ancient Future world fusion music ensemble, has studied Indian classical music for over 20 years with some of the greatest masters of that tradition (including Alla Rakha, Zakir Hussain, Ali Akbar Khan and Z. M. Dagar). An award-winning songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist (playing tabla, congas, percussion, esraj, guitar, and keyboards) and vocalist, Benjy frequently tours and records with Krishna Das. He has also toured the US, Canada, and Japan with renowned bamboo flute master G.S. Sachdev, and opened for such artists as Carlos Santana, Paul Winter, and Narada Michael Walden.

Heather is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, yoga teacher, and therapist, whose beautiful vocals, unique perspectives and unusual depth reflect a wide array of human experiences. Heather performs and tours with Benjy and with virtuoso guitarist Michael Mandrell. She combines her special love of both music and yoga to lead devotional chanting for workshops and spiritual gatherings. Her debut CD with Shantala, "Church of Sky," is a contemporary folk CD with musical influences from around the world. In the past, Heather was a featured vocalist in the musical "Return to Avalon" and has performed throughout the Northwest with the groups HeartStrings and Lonesome Taxi.

Devotional chanting is an opportunity to open your heart to the divine through the singing of ancient mantras. You may offer your devotion to whatever it is that you hold dear in your heart. Chanting the names of ancient deities speaks to spirit that lives inside each one of us, evoking the power of the ages. No experience is necessary, and no musical talent is required in order to participate.

musica chidota
desde Mexico, esta musica es muy relajante, tiene colores folkloricos, se siente la ineterpretacion natural de la misma.

Soul inspiring music weaving a joyful tapestry of lilting voices and instruments
First heard this CD at my yoga class and was so taken with the gorgeous sound that I had to have it. It's haunting melodies and sentiment melt my heart every time I listen.

This lovely album is bound to inspire well-being
Reviewed in Sounds From the Ground Up by Mara Applebaum — October 2004

After reviewing Shantala’s first CD, Church of Sky, I could see that Shantala’s members, Benjy Wertheimer and Heather Wertheimer, share a deep dedication to the paths of love and peace. Shantala’s latest release, The Love Window, is a collection of devotional kirtans that will appeal to both seasoned chanters and those who are approaching kirtans for the first time. In the company of distinguished bansuri flutist Steve Gorn and many other talented musicians, as well as a chorus of the Wertheimers’
kirtan community, Shantala brings sacred song to a broad audience with this CD. In a meditative atmosphere, the sacred chanting on the lovely album is bound to inspire well-being and grounding.

Powerful and Enchanting
Except for the first to songs, which I don`t like, it is one of the absolute best kirtan CD:s ever. Classical Kirtans and Chants with a special sound. Enchanting!

The Love Window
I bought the CD mainly for a couple songs that I had heard in a yoga class - and they do not disappoint! My 4 year old daughter has taken it over though and listens to it at bed time. I may have to get another...

spiritual alchemy
find bliss through sound..on this cd, heather and benjy weave their voices with instrumentation, creating divine tapestries...dialogues between spirit and soul. The Love Window is more like a time machine, a portal to ananda...i use it in yoga classes: students LOVE IT!

A beautiful CD - truly heart opening. Great for singing along to, or to relax and unwind. More please!!

A truly inspirational collection
I love this c.d. The Love Window is an uplifting and beautiful collection of devotional chants. I am mesmerized by the vocals and instruments. Shantala's Hare Krishna chant is the most beautiful version I've ever heard.

Douglas W McKenzie

Beautifull bled of male and female
The contrast between the two lovely voices against the instrumental backdrop is transforming. A wonderful reminder that there is a real world that supports the visible world and is generally transparent because of our own lack of 'tuning'. This music reminds us and helps to tune.

This album moved my heart like nothing else I can think of. I first heard Benjy and Heather in concert at a Unity Church and was so taken with the combination of beautiful voices and haunting esraj that I became an immediate fan. I had never heard of kirtans before but find them an enchanting form of music and devotion. I bought Voice first, then Sri and finally Love Window. I look forward to more from Shantala and hope someday they come back to our town again.
