In the wonderful world of music making in which I’ve been fortunate enough to reside, I have witnessed the power of music in my life and in the lives of those around me. I’ve played with many amazing musicians in many incredible places doing many styles of music and I’ve found that music is the perfect vehicle for friendship, community, education, artistic expression, entertainment, relaxation, healing, and Spiritual growth.
This project is a DOUBLE CD with almost 2 hours of music! One version of these chants is orchestrated with a more rhythmic feel (Disc 1) and the second version of the same chants has a more meditational feel (Disc 2).
May these ancient, sacred Sanskrit chants and the music we created to surround them bring you closer to the peace and joy that lies within.
