An eclectic mix of beats, layers, and chants.
We kick off this episode with Luis Camino & Abya Yala, and a track entitled Ganesh Mantra from the India-only release Dancing Mantras. This flows into an synth-padded, ethereal rendering of the Maha-Mantra performed by Berlin group The Bhaktas, from their recent release Cosmic Mantra.
After a short break we hear new stuff from Masood Ali Khan and Yogi Cameron. We hear the chant So Hum, accompanied by Sheela Bringi on flute, and Eddie Young on bass. Next up, Gary Azukx with the Buddhist Hundred-Syllable Vajrasattva Mantra, and new stuff from Matthew Portwood aka BeautifulWorld with Ishvara Pranidhana, a sanskrit term meaning “loving surrender to the Divine”. Marti Walker brings a new spin on the Hanuman Chalisa prayers with the track Radio Gaga Chalisa from Revolution, and the set is capped-off with Trevor Hall aka Ramapriyadas, and a song inspired by the stories of Shri Rama, which he names Humla.
The show ends with the combined vocal stylings of Elvis (yup .. Elvis), and word-flow of the members of Anahata Sacred Sound Current. The track is called Wisdom of the Ages and comes from their newest release, Vimanas Project Volume One.
