Aradhna has been around for a little over a decade, but I am fairly new to their music. With that being the case, I found this album to be an awesome introduction to not only their music, but Eastern music as well. True, they mix Western sounds (there's some distorted guitar in one or two songs and drum kits as well) into the Eastern music, but I believe that the end result is this brilliant masterpiece.

Rather than detracting from the music, the Western instruments, in my opinion, make this album a bit more palatable for those who are not used to their sound. Most of their other albums are a little more toned-down and probably more authentically Eastern. But I love how this album mixes the two cultures so well. Pull up their videos for Namaste Sate and Mukteshwar if you want to hear some full-song samples from this album.

Also, translations to their music are available on the band's website in case you want to see what they are singing about as a majority of the singing is in Hindi and other languages from that region.

My father is from Sri Lanka, so I have an internal affinity to South Asian instruments and music. I was first introduced to Aradhna through the band Iona. How overjoyed I was to hear some Christian music that wasn't western in style. Before purchasing this album, I had first purchased "Amrit Vani" which is very heavily Indian, as well as Satsang (also very heavily Indian). I had the pleasure of seeing the video for "Mukteshwar" before purchasing "Namaste Sate". That song is bangin' and I thought the whole album would be that way, but unfortunately, these wonderful, anointed musicians leaned a little too heavily on the western influences. :( There are about 5 to 6 songs on here that I have added to my MP3 player, but the rest are either too western or just too loud and guitar driven (felt like the distortion was scratching my ears). Here are the songs I like:

1.Mukteshwar- wonderful song based on the beatitudes...THE BEST TRACK ON THE ALBUM

5. Suralata- great upbeat feel. The beat is kinda western, but I am used to hearing some of this in Sri Lankan music

6. Asato Ma- very relaxing piece. Chris' vocals are quite good on here. Lots of sitar and tabla as well.

7. Chosen- reminds me of Dyhana Mulam from Amrit Vani. Starts out with drones from the sitar and is actually in the lydian mode!!! This mode isn't used much in western pop music....I've heard it in Bollywood movies before and love the dreamy, trippy effect it produces.

10. Herana- very gentle piece with Guitar and cello. The only thing Indian about this song is the lyrics. Nevertheless, it's very soothing and interesting. It would have been nice to hear some Indian classical violin or sitar here.

The rest of the songs are not in Aradhna's traditional style.

Very impressive use of sitar and tabala....along with western instruments. And the lyrics draw you to worship.

Nicely done !!!

This is the music that I listen to when I am upset and it instantly makes me feel better. My favorite song is the Asato Mahithi. It is actually a Gujarati song that is asking God for guidance. Aradhna has made the song even more beautiful with the lovely voice and music.
