"Planet Chant is a moving an hypnotic exploration of the possibilities of the human voice, which includes British, Russian, Tibetan, Bulgarian, South African and Native American contribution.
Chanting has been practiced as a spiritual tradition for centuries, and virtually every culture, past and present, has chanted in some form or another.
The chants on Planet Chant are performed by some of the most gifted proponents of the genre including the Qawwali master Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan from Pakistan, Ladysmith Black Mambazo from South Africa, contemporary Native American singers Primeaux and Mike, Indian chanteuse Sheila Chandra, The Orthodox Bulgarian choir Angelite and the east-west styling of Krishna Das."

"Beautiful CD! My favorites are: Great Litany by Angelite, Polorum Regina by Saraband,Siguga Isiphambano by Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Confirmation by Oberton-Choir Dusseldorf.All the songs are spiritually enlightening,uplifting,soothing. I am not letting this one go! Perfect as a Relaxation or for just 'pondering'."
Good sampler of poppy chants; grating if overplayed

"This CD is a compilation of different artists that utilize "chants" in their music. There are twelve separate artists (or artist pairs) represented on "Planet Chant." Some of the chants on the CD are religious in nature; others are not. The compilation's producer has included a short explanation about chanting and brief summaries on how chanting is used by each of the artists on the CD. Overall, I find the songs on this CD evoke a peaceful, meditative feeling. I have even had some success in meditating by chanting along with the Krishna Das and Oberton-Chor Dusseldorf pieces on the CD. However, if "Planet Chant" is overplayed, I find it to be somewhat grating. Perhaps it's because of the love-hate relationship I have with meditation (and all religious/spiritual beliefs that I perceive as seeking to transcend rather than confront and feel emotions). Usually the mood for me to listen to a CD like this is "I am anxious and nothing else is working so what can I do (or not do) to help me let go of my anxiety?" This CD sometimes works on those occasions."
