    This signature mood album is a restful alternative to our fast paced age. Soulful songs weave Sanskrit chants into catchy English refrains. This cinematic collision of sound was created in collaboration with seasoned musicians and uses a colorful palette of world instruments. Album draws inspiration in styles such as space-rock, electronic, world-beat and hip-hop.

    Featuring eight impressive tracks “Wild Horses” has an insistent pulse. Soothing electronic beats and mantras from the Upanishads begin the album with the “ Morning Rising.” As the album unfolds we journey into “Wild Horses” – a track that takes you on an adventure ride. “ Dooms Day Parade” confronts the establishment with challenging English lyrics. As the “day continues” – we rest in a soothing lake of Hari Muraru, with celestial flutes and evocative dilruba.

    Leaving you with a yearning to listen again and again, this album takes you on a transformational journey from outside – in. This is a personal album, reflecting on the life as a ever-expanding miracle and recognizing patterns and forces at work above and beneath our normal focus.

lyrics

Lead me Govinda towards the Holy,
down with the River towards the Holy.

cintamani-prakara-sadmasu kalpa-vrksa-
laksavrtesu surabhir abhipalayantam
laksmi-sahasra-sata-sambhrama-sevyamanam
govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami

I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, who is tending the cows, yielding all desire, in abodes built with spiritual gems, surrounded by millions of purpose trees, always served with great reverence and affection by hundreds of thousands of laksmis or gopis.

Lead me Govinda towards the Holy,
down with the River towards the Holy.
