Editorial Reviews

Internationally-acclaimed for his Western interpretations of northern India's classical music, Stevin McNamara offers you this entrancing journey. His signature acoustic stylings flow freely on a current of meditative percussion.

Prana Groove is a 60-minute piece of music divided into 3 movements: 1 Dance of the Midnight Moon 2 Dream Sequence 3 Jhala (or climax) Prana = the Sanskrit word for basic primal vital energy which sustains and energizes the body. It moves through the breath. Groove = rhythmic patterns which motivate the body to move.
The melodic element is based on Rag Malkauns -- a profound raga which is to be played late at night (usually midnight) -- based on a pentatonic (5 note) scale.

The large intervals between the notes create an intense emotional effect on the listener. The tempo is 108 beats per minute, chosen for it's sacred Sanskrit value and effect. There are 108 different yet interwoven musical phrases presented throughout the piece.

A great addition to your yoga or bodywork playlist!

I have been playing this in my yoga classes and enjoy it a lot. It has a nice groove, while not being distracting. I take a lot of care to try and pick music for my classes that will please all types of students. I have a lot of students that are new to yoga and find that they don't enjoy traditional yoga music yet. This music creates such a great vibe while allowing even students new to yoga (that are afraid of eastern sounding music) to relax and enjoy their yoga practice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lotus Guide Magazine Review October 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Prana Groove CD

By Stevin McNamara

For the first time I feel what the generations before me felt when the blues, jazz, and rock and roll burst onto the scene. Stevin McNamara definitely captures the musical form of raga and the drum patterns found in some Sufi dervish dance beats. You can't help but feel you are moving on down the line to a distinctly new style and sound that embody the needs of an awakening generation. I seldom review CDs but this is seriously good.

The music played as we wait for the program to start and after. Dream Sequence. Glad I found out, I will buy the album.
The program was the Joyous Body series, available on Soundstrue's mp3 downloads. Do not know if it will be on the CD set.
