CD Reviews

The Seminal Recording
Musama Bin-Laden | US | 12/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is the strongest by far when it comes to capturing the often terrifying intensity of the Ramayana Chant. Vocal fireworks of the first order - on par with P'ansori. Diamanda is a lightweight - take a listen."
Douglas Millhoff | Los Angeles, CA United States | 09/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let me say upfront, I don't understand a word of this. I've never had the dubious pleasure of actually seeing the Kecak performed live. And much of this is so esoteric as to be mind-numbing.
But there is a segment, sometimes called the Ramayana Monkey Chant, that is absolutely mesmerising: voices leap into a rapid-fire, syncopated polyrhythmic chant can only be described as an a capella equivalent to Tangerine Dream's signature textures.
This isn't everyone's cup of tea, and the only other use I can think of for it is to terrorize cats, christians, and small children, but if you DO like this sort of thing, this is the definitive version of the Kecak."
