Quote by Jean Houston

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)

Review by Music Design:
Music Mosaic offers a collection of artists that are displaying the contemporary side of mantra music, where ancient mantras find a home in cutting edge musical arrangements. The album features some of today's most prolific chant and spiritual music artists including Deva Premal, Kiran Ahluwahlia, Om At Last, Karunesh and many others, presented with some of their vibrant hits that show the juxtaposition of classic and modern, usually with a dance music twist. Take Premal's "Om Tare Tuttare," which is featured in a remix version that adds a healthy bit of percussion and a trip-hop flavor. Sitar Beat's "O Aasarer Purnima" has down a lounge path, with sensual vocals that are blended with mellow atmospheres.

Mantra chanting has been a long tradition of religious practice to repeat mystic syllables that have an esoteric meaning in order to attain peace of mind. In contemporary words, mantra chanting is a kind of mystical music therapy through the power of repeating melodious sound vibrations, uplifting us to our higher self.

Our modern life has lost much of the quietness, silence and contemplative environment that was natural in the past. Chanting mantras nowadays can help us relieve tension and stress, it lowers blood pressure, slows down the heart beat rate. It harmonises body, mind and spirit.

Here we offer to you a mantra CD incorporating the ancient magical syllables with modern ambient rhythms, making it easy for our Western minds to grasp and enjoy. You will hear soft vocal chanting arranged in a new age manner with inspiring trancey world beats to soothe and relax, to open the heart and quiet the mind. Om Shanti.
