Next is now, world music as the single most potent force in the culture of fusion ... World music-makers are like shamans, carrying us on magic carpets of riffs and melodies through states of consciousness that spin us out of time to lands not yet invented but glimpsed on the aural horizon ... And so we see that music brings us, in the jumping of our cells, from what is past to what is trying to become the future. lt expresses and fulfills our need to hear the spirit in the dark.
(Jean Houston in Jump Time, Sentient Publ. 2004)
Chillout India CD - Eastern moods on ambient grooves
By Ariel Kalma & friends
Chillout music but with a different flavour! - Elevating melodies and intricate rhythms are weaved by masterful Indian vocals, bamboo flutes, smooth saxophones, inspiring keyboards, and more.
The producer of the renowned Music Mosaic compilations, Ariel Kalma, is accompanied by friends from various countries to compose exquisite atmospheres for yoga, flowing dances, mellow driving and endless listening pleasure.
Review by Ryan Sparks:
Chillout India is further proof that Ariel Kalma's inimitable vision of seamlessly blending the diverse cultures of the world can indeed bring the citizens of this planet a little closer together through music.

Chillout India reviewed by Tandem and Corriere Canadian newspapers
From the “it’s a small world after all” department comes a package from Australia by a musician who’s rediscovered music from the ‘70’s I reviewed in June. Back in the day Kalma was a sax player in the French jazz and art-rock scene that got into World music and traveled the globe (including a tour of Quebec in the ‘80's as music director for the famous Margot Anand’s Tantra seminars). Now Kalma lives in Australia and produces music in the company of musicians from India and Indonesia.
His Music Mosaic label publishes cds that are packaged for the New Age wing of the chill-out scene, but “Chillout India” has more in common with the World fusionist excursions of people like Bill Laswell and Talvin Singh. Midtempo rhythms from electric bass, hand drum and tablas create a flowing groove as male Indian vocals or flutes weave introspective melodies over spacious synth backgrounds.
