CD Reviews

Lhasa in your home
Pharoah S. Wail | Inner Space | 04/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To the best of my knowledge, Western musicians never utilized (or developed or imagined) vocal overtones, although Eastern musicians of several different cultures did. Well, some Westerners have recently, but not until first becoming aware of it through exposure to the Eastern innovations.The bullfrog analogy in the official review was an interesting one, but if you hate the sound of frogs pay it no attention. The monks hold long, sustained notes, sometimes solo, sometimes in unison. I've always considerd this style of overtone singing more as an ocean of droning reverberation that comes and goes, the incoming waves overlapping and absorbing the outgoing waves. I have played this cd for unsuspecting people before and when I asked them what they thought it was they very rarely ever even think that it is possible to make this music with just human voices. This is definitely transportational music of deep human importance.Also look into the group HUUN HUUR TU. They also do overtone singing. Both styles are technically similar in that one man sings an extremely low note and a high overtone simultaneously but stylistically the Tuvan style (HUUN HUUR TU's style) and the Gyuto style are completely different. Both equally amazing and transcendent, but both completely different."
The Very Best Chant

"Mickey Hart's work here is the best Tibetan prayer recording ever. Using the best Neumann microphones in the world, he arranged them in such a way as to capture the widest 3-D sound of the narrow hallway in which the monks prayed. The result is stunning, as if one were present in the middle of the hall. I've never heard such a vibrant live recording before--ever."
Transports you to the high Himalayas without the frostbite.

"I love this c.d. It becomes beautifully familiar over time. This is a must for any meditation musical library."
