Product Description

Ancient Spirit (Kirtan Cafe, Vol. II) captures listeners with full-length, richly woven kirtan songs (yoga chants). From the producers of the largest independent and ongoing kirtan scene in the US, this kirtan CD offers beautiful vocals, a sea of chanters, and rich world instrumentation that bring to life the mantras of India. Following their award-winning debut album (Best of Both Worlds), and based upon the sacred kirtan chants of India, this Ancient Spirit CD was released as a tribute to Sri Swami Rama of the Himalayas.

Review

"Ragani, who has grown to become one of the nation's leading kirtan chanters, proves her worth with this exquisite collection of mantras... The recording provides a wonderful atmosphere for spiritual journeys and growth. Besides the smooth waves of chant brought forth by the gentle voiced Ragani, the release features the tabla playing of Girish, as well as an invigorating cocktail of rhythm that includes flute, harmonium and guitar." --Music Design

Format: Audio CD
"Ancient Spirit" is Ragani's second kirtan CD and like her previous release, "Best of Both Worlds", it is an excellent collection of contemporary kirtan (kirtan is an ancient Indian musical form in which the name of the divine is chanted in a 'call and response' fashion).

Ragani sings these chants (and plays harmonium/keyboards/percussion) skillfully and lovingly. Whether she's chanting a whispered melody or singing at full volume, the quality of her voice is always sweet, glowing and mellifluous. Over the course of a chant, she is always able to coax the magic out of these mantras. Ragani's vocal performances are infused with love and devotion and leave no doubt that she is singing directly from the cave of her heart. Sweet!

Musically, both east and west, ancient and modern, and earth and sky are effectively blended. The musicians on this CD play traditional instruments (harmonium, tablas, sitar) and typical western instruments (flute, guitar, electric bass, myriad percussion). The arrangements are rich and satisfying and always support the chanting. This music is easily accessible and features wonderful melodies, pleasing harmonies and propulsive rhythms. There are melodies that are sweet sounding ("Sri Krishna"), exotic ("Krishna Govinda") and majestic ("Prayer of Harmony"). Harmonium chords and sitar notes provide a foundation throughout, while flute and guitars (and other stringed instruments) provide melodic embellishments. The rhythm section really grooves, and if you're so inclined, this CD provides ample opportunity for you to move your body as you chant! The 'response' provided by the chorus of chanters on this recording is pleasing and helps provide the appropriate balance and energy for the kirtan presented here.

Kirtan, the yoga of chanting, has got to be the most enjoyable form of spiritual practice. It's easy, it's fun, and in the right hands it's also great music! "Ancient Spirit" is the perfect kirtan CD, featuring memorable melodies, amazingly talented musicians, Ragani's exquisite voice, and lots of heart! I could sing along with this collection of songs 24/7!

Ragani's bestselling debut CD, "Best of Both Worlds" is also terrific.

I loved her first CD and I love this. Her voice is clear and lovely and the instrumentals are fabulous. I love playing these CDs before I teach yoga or when I am driving anywhere. If you chant through this CD you will feel the spirit within you!
