Omega Ecstatic Chant 2 CD set by well know Kirtan and Mantra Artists offers Sanskrit mantras and chants for yoga and devotion.
Deva Premal & Miten, Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, Snatam Kaur and Wah!, joined by other leading lights in contemporary kirtan and mantra music, are showcased in these recordings entitled Omega Ecstatic Chant, captured during a spring weekend of inspiring musical prayer recorded at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY.
Omega Ecstatic Chant offers a variety of traditional and new mantras, kirtans and chants delivered in an array of traditional and contemporary styles, kindling a joyful mood that can lead to profound states of deep meditation.
Known in India as kirtan (Sanskrit for “devotional chanting”), the call-and-response, rhythmic quality of these prayers kindles a joyful mood and can lead to profound states of deep meditation. The variety of chants found on this specially-priced 2-CD set, rendered in an array of traditional and contemporary styles, reveals why kirtan is considered one of the surest paths to enlightenment.
During the weekend at the Omega Institute, fans and devotees of chant gather to sing a variety of traditional and new chants, led by the acknowledged contemporary masters of the form and accompanied by an array of instruments old and new, including the harmonium and tabla—standards in Indian classical music. The weekend also includes an extraordinary late-night Saturday session featuring rare collaborations between these gifted chant singers.
The performances on Omega Ecstatic Chant were recorded in May 2010 at the spring edition of Omega’s Labor Day Ecstatic Chant weekend, a twice-annual event which continues to enthrall sold-out audiences.
Additional featured artists on Omega Ecstatic Chant includes Shyam Das, Carioca and Vishal Vaid.
