      Mantra Radio - January 24th 2013

An eclectic mix of beats, layers, and chants.

Who is the Queen of Vrindavan?. Radhe!. The Vibrations bring another great track from their December release Pyramid Code, this one is dedicated to Radha and Govinda, who playfully roam the forests of Vrinda. More solid beats follow with DJ Drez and his remix of Ganesha Theme, the original findable on Lotus Memoirs. This track features the vocals of singer, performer & [Drez’s] wife, Marti Nikko.

Next set begins with Shubda Mudgal and a track from the album No Stranger Here entitled Drunk in Love – Diwaana. In this song she describes how surrender to her Beloved has made her intoxicated with divine love. This album is a collaborative effort by Shubda, Ursula Rucker and Business Class Refugees. The next track by Subway Bhaktis builds slowly into a kirtan climax with the chant “Om dum dum dum durgaye namah”, leading into other names chanted in honour of the divine mother. This track is entitled Hey Ma Durga and appears on the release Rasa Lila.

The Yogini’s perform a song entitled Yog Jazz, followed by the mula (root) mantra – Ek Ong Kar recorded by Sukhdev and Akahdahmah Jackson aka Aykanna. This is from the release entitled Mother and is a mantra that is considered to be the core of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the sacred text of the Sikh tradition. This set ends with a beautiful chant to the resting place and shelter of all beings, Narayana, recorded by Manish Vyas. It is simply entitled Om Namo Narayana, and comes from the release Sattva.

The show is capped off with another sweet track from the UK’s Mahasukha. This is a cover of the classic Shower the People, originally recorded by James Taylor in the late 70’s.
