Description

Stunning in its sensuality and lush with ethereal and earthly rhythms, Sadhana gathers a circle of musicians from around the globe for 10 tracks of ethno-ambient chill that serve as an aphrodisiac for the soul. Dutch composer Maneesh de Moor has created an ecstatic blend of Tibetan chanting and didgeridoo, tamboura and acoustic bass, Persian santoor and piano, and the heavenly voices of Sudha and Sandhya Sanjana that will allow listeners to hear their walls dissolve into a joyful awareness of life.

A master of keyboard layering, Maneesh has taken his mastery of sound-synthesis and infused it with the sounds of nature—birdsong, flowing water, crickets in a nighttime soundscape—and the human voice—from whispers to deep, baritone chanting—to evoke Sadhana: a contemporary tribute to the spiritual life of devotion and meditation.

On this new musical creation, de Moor ventures off into a sublime and devotional sound all on his own. "This album is not about musicality, but about transformation—this music is made for the energetic, physical, and mental state of well-being in the listener," says de Moor." The music on this CD came through from the Beyond, guided by Spirit. All I had to do was to be open and receptive to it and record that space, that energy." The result is Sadhana, a journey inspired by the magical rituals of India, Tibet, Yoruba, and Native American and Sufi worlds—and meant to create a space for visions and Oneness.

"Sadhana" is unique experience in sound. Each track has a life of it's own, many with a wonderful beat surrounded by everything from animal sounds to things a little spacey to something Spike Jones might have done. I am quite pleased with this disc and it is great addition to my collection.

Absolutely fantastic CD. I have listened to it everyday since I received it 9 days ago. Wonderfully composed music with lots of unique but non-annoying sounds, my favorite tracks have vocals by Sudha as well. Might not be ideal for meditation as there are strong harmonies and there is a lot going on musically, but it's perfect for winding down and shutting up the thought-train right before bed. Highly, highly recommended!!
