These compositions for yoga practice, created specifically for master yogini Shiva Rea, are some of the finest that I’ve heard. The ecstatic chanting of Jai Uttal punctuates incredibly resonate and lush backdrops created from seamless blends of tamboura, synths, and harmonium. Acoustic and electrical guitar, bamboo flute and minimal percussion are generously sprinkled throughout giving the pieces texture and form. The Spirit of Yoga effortlessly draws one’s attention deeply inwards for yoga, meditation or other healing and spiritual practices
This Cd is one of the most beautiful and deeply soothing and relaxing Cds that I have ever listened to. One starts off slow, with resonating drones of tamboura, keyboards, and cello and continues to add layers with melodies of acoustic guitar, harp, and flutes. Some mellow tabla playing adds just the right amount of percussion and feel, and if you listen closely you can hear subtle yet angelic choir voices in the background.
