Synopsis

Album Description
Rich, expansive, and haunting, Secrets of Life is a closely woven tapestry of ethnic instruments, voices, and multi-cultural influences that balance and enlighten each other in unexpected and captivating ways. Persian harmonies predominate this recording, which celebrates the symbiotic relationship between the soul's heart and the rhythm of the earth, expressed as energy moving through the body. This CD has a very exotic sound transporting the listener to some far away tropical island of paradise.

Mystical Musical Landscapes on a Sacred Journey
Erika Borsos | Gulf Coast of FL, USA | 04/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first track on this CD begins with an unexpected male vocal beseechment, a call to worship, by Mohammad Eghabal, accompanied by appropriate seriously sedate music played on one instrument. "Inshallah" has a highly evocative and unusual beginning which captures one's attention as the individual notes on the sitar (possibly guitar) are strummed to set the mood and carry the listener to a sacred space within. The first track creates the mystical journey that never ends, even when the CD stops. My next favorite is "Morning Glory". The introduction begins with chimes or bells, that are followed by the flute, and soft strains on the guitar ... it sounds very much like reflective, melodic Chinese music. The piece transitions into harmonious and meandering guitar melodies played by Govi, accompanied on keyboards, with other sounds that enhance the flow, fluidity and texture of soft, silky music. Track # 5, "Down Under" has more depth and direction to the music, it takes you into a lyrical, smoothly played, magical rhythm which is enhanced by the tabla, that sounds highly cultural and natural. "A Journey to India", track #6, continues taking the listener to exotic musical landscapes with sitar strains and tabla accompaniment, there is an exciting, infectious beat that is highly appealing. "Secrets of Life", track #7, continues the venue of serenity developed by the previous tracks, the music is fluid, mystical, and magical in its expression. The last track, #8, "Dusk" ... invokes again the sacred call to worship by Mohammad Eghbal, the same or similar vocals as in the first "Inshallah" but this time, one senses the closing of the day, as the instruments blend the music into creating a nostalgic and ethereal feeling as if watching a sunset. This CD radiates spirituality with the sacred, magical, and mystical sounds of each and every track. My highest recommendation.

Yes Another Karunesh Masterpiece!
Margaret M. Thompson | Great Lake State | 11/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love Karunesh music. I've taken the cds to massage therapy, I listen to them in my car, and I listen to them in the evening as I am going through my mail, eating my dinner, or working around the house. My dog and cat approve of my music selection as well."
