Synopsis

Amazon.com
Sheila Chandra's fourth Indipop album, released in 1985 in a limited edition before she took a five-year hiatus, sets the stage for the ethereal vocal style she explored during the 1990s. Comprised of five songs, Nada Brahma spotlights a younger Chandra exploring numerous vocal techniques. The 27-minute title track showcases her lush vocals in an intriguing (if loosely connected) series of vocal maneuvers--ethereal streams of sound, appealing Indian melodies, and staccato-syllable dances. This is beguiling, organic ambient music with occasional accompaniment by keyboards, percussion, or other instruments. The other four tracks are more rhythmically grounded examples of Anglo-Indian fusion, including the gently hypnotic atmospheric pop of "The Awakening" and the energetic dance pulse of "Question the Answer," which features Chandra singing in English. While this early album may not have the flow or cohesiveness of later efforts like AboneCroneDrone, Nada Brahma spotlights a heavenly voice expanding its expressiveness and is recommended for fans of Chandra and of beautiful vocal music. --Bryan Reesman

Meditative music with a lot more than just easy listening
Sascha René Leib | Tampere, Finland | 05/18/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a lot more than just another meditation record. Indian ragas at their best, without anyone trying hard to suit the western taste, this is one of the rare "authentic" pieces of indian music that still can be apreciated by western ears.What amazes me most is the variety of different styles and the shere quality of the music. I'd give it a rating of 10 if it were a bit longer (I think, it's only something like 35 minutes!)"
