Sri Chinmoy - Meditation Sky
SRI CHINMOY - MEDITATION SKY
ok, its about time we started dipping into the vast waters of the new age/spiritual guru/cult leader scene here. kicking things off with an LP by Sri Chinmoy (who was famously worshipped by super guitarists John McLaughlin & Carlos Santana and more) there are 2 side long pieces here. first side is solo esraj zones. simple and floating and calm. side two features Sri Chinmoy's singing with harmonium/organ accompaniment. his vocals get pretty dissonant (i.e.: he's a little pitchy) with the harmonium, so its like new age Morton Feldman, but its actually quite a soothing side. a really nice record. included is a full scan of the booklet with meditation instructions and copious pictures of Sri Sri blissed out with his eyes rolled back into his head and stuff. enjoy!
