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.

Sublime Review by Dawn Marie
This album took me to where many others have failed (this and the one by Sharanam who has the voice of an angel).
I love the Indian vibes and other cultural influences, natural sounds too. And of course the voices which are almost ethereal.
This album is truly a feat of genius in my opinion.
Beautiful. Sublime. (Posted on May 28, 2015)

Review for Sadhana Review by Judy G
I loved some of the samples of Maneesh de Moor on other Sounds True products. I was a bit surprised by the digital music, and didn't like it as well. At a later date, I'll order something like Om Deeksha. (Posted on July 6, 2014)
Review for Sadhana Review by Dean H
"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. (Posted on March 3, 2014)
Review for Sadhana Review by Erin G
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!! (Posted on June 8, 2013)
