Synopsis

Album Description
"Sacred World Chants," the long-awaited follow-up to the extremely popular "Prayer, A Multicultural Journey of Spirit, is a rich cross-cultural musical journey featuring mantras from the world's major spiritual paths - Jewish, Islamic, Christian, Hindu, Tibetan Buddhist, Native American and African. This stunning collection includes chants from around the world, performed by today's leading chant masters and backed by Dean Evenson's soaring flutes and resonant keyboards. "This collection of chants culled from previous releases on different labels is wide in scope, embracing spiritual and cultural traditions from all over the world, including Hindu, Zulu, Buddhist, Judaic, Yoruban, Christian, Islamic, and American Indian influences. "Nali," a field recording by John St. John, is a heart-thumping example of the African tribal connection with nature and harvest time. The Zulu women's voices are deeply passionate and inspiring. The Sufi "Allaho Akbar" is a sparse yet riveting plea to the divine. "Dudley's Song," named for executive producer Dudley Evenson, brings to life a chant "caught" by Lummi tribal elder Cha-das-ska-dum. The variety of traditions captured here will make Sacred World Chants a special treasure for world-music fans. The purpose of these chants is clearly stated in the liner notes: "A few years ago when we were entertaining Tibetan monks, we asked the chant master what it is about their chanting that makes it healing. His unwavering reply was, 'Intention.'" The intention Soundings of the Planet brings to this album, as the label has all its albums for 25 years, is world peace." - NEW AGE RETAILER "Sounds From the Ground Up" by Mara Applebaum - October 2004

My current favorite CD
ZenDude | Tucson, AZ | 02/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After Soundings released "Prayer", I was waiting for a follow-up and this is it. I play this almost every night before bed because the chants are soothing and inspiring. It helps me sleep and wake-up in a good mood. This CD is a rich cross-cultural musical journey featuring mantras from the world's major spiritual paths and some of today's top "chant" artists. I love the selections by Deva Premal, Snatam Kaur, Manish Vyas & Dina Awwad, and Gina Sala. If you like chant/kirtan music, you will not be disappointed with this CD."

"I ordered it because my yoga teacher played it for a class and it was inspirational! Beautiful songs from many different cultures. My favorite is the "shema". Lovely quiet listening and yoga CD."
