CD Reviews

Enchanting mediation material | Fleming, Ohio | 08/12/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Good mood music for meditation. A blend of styles ranging from old world to rural peasant celebration. But I doubt that anyone who is not appreciative of eastern culture would connect to this. I normally listen to it alone. Not a hit at parties, but I will get years of listening pleasure."
Purify your mind

"I've had this CD for about 5 years and I'm still listening to it on a regular basis for purifying my mind and spirit. The pure and simple beauty of the sitar and flute transforms you to a beautiful place and time...far...far...away..."
Eclectic release
B. Strottman | Kingwood, TX United States | 01/22/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I've had this CD now for about 6 years, but I didn't listen to it much until I was most of the way through graduate school. The first song could be construed, as Sonia said in her review, as "boring." It is nearly 35 minutes long, with flute beginning, then tabla joining soon after, and a quiet sitar droning along several minutes later. This is a very introspective and quiet song, and after I discovered the "repeat track" function on my portable CD player, I found I could listen to it for 6 or 8 hours as I studied or, later, worked.The second and third tracks are much louder, a folk ensemble playing a 25-minute suite that reminds me of Philip Glass. The fourth track is, as its name implies, a meditational raga.This CD is not Ravi Shankar--its focus, as the name implies, is FLUTE and sitar music. Still, it is a welcome addition to my small but growing collection of Indian and Middle Eastern music.For those interested in long compositions that many might consider "boring" or repetitive, I'd also recommend Hussein el Masry's "Entre Nile et Gange (Between the Nile and Ganges)." The Egyptian master plays his oud, with a sitar accompanying, for some 53 minutes of interplay. Not for the short of attention span!"
