Product Description

About the Artist

Putumayo World Music was established in 1993 to introduce people to the music of the world's cultures. The label grew out of Putumayo clothing company, founded by Dan Storper in 1975 and sold in 1997. Co-founder Michael Kraus joined Dan to launch Putumayo World Music and establish a non-traditional sales division. Putumayo World Music has become known primarily for its upbeat and melodic compilations of great international music characterized by the company's motto: "guaranteed to make you feel good!" Putumayo's CD covers feature the distinctive art of Nicola Heindl, whose colorful, folkloric style represents one of Putumayo's goals: to connect the traditional to the contemporary. By combining appealing music and visuals with creative retail marketing, Putumayo has developed a unique brand identity - a rarity in today's artist-based music industry.

First, I applaud Putumayo for making a recording that exceeds 60 minutes. "Yoga" is 71:32 minutes as identified on the back jacket. I hope this sets a new trend for Putumayo, whose CDs average around 45 minutes.

"Yoga" is the best compilation of music intended for yoga that I have come across. It certainly fulfills the function to aid breath with movement. The repetitive sound (mantra/kirtan chants) is also conducive for meditation. Unlike other compilations which are a fusion of new age-easy listening-lounge music; this collection retains its purpose of devotional music, creating an ambience that can be appreciated by the practioner.

The musicians are superb. To Putumayo's credit, they list the albums from which the selections were taken......I will certainly order a couple of those listed.

I spend 20 minutes each morning on my yoga practice and find tracks 1-4, 5-10 and 11-14 are sufficient time for each session. These tracks are also appropriate for start-up of slower stretching movements.

Putumayo's "Yoga" is one of the world music label's best compilations yet. It perfectly suits yoga, meditation, Pilates. It's incredibly serene, like a cup of jasmine tea. The music is deeply thoughtful, drawing on Hindu, Buddhist, and African traditions.

"Yoga" opens with the Lucknow Project's peaceful "Ghungate Ke." Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band from New Orleans have the jazzy "Om Hari Om." Susheela Raman's "O Rama" as well as Ablaye Cissoko&Volker Goetze's "Sira" blend African with Indian music. There are meditative instrumentals such as Ben Leinbach&Geoffrey Gordon's "Cerulean" and Amounsulu's "El Bosque Eternal de los Ninos",a tribute to a Costa Rican rainforest preserve. Amounsoulu makes a flavorful blend of Latin and Indian music. Wah! sings a powerful ode to Rama. Karnamrita Dasi, who grew up in an American ashram, sings an ode to Krishna's human mother, Devaki. Krishna Das, one of the premier American singers of Hindu kirtans (devotional songs) has a remix of his ode to Hanuman, the monkey god (Heart As Wide As The World,Live on Earth) "Offering Chant" is a unique collaboration between blind pianist Jean-Philippe Rykiel and Tibetan Buddhist Lama Gyurme. It sounds like an Anglican hymn. One can imagine it being sung in some proper Episcopal church. It's a Tibetan Buddhist chant with a Western classical sensibility. The closing song, "Bliss", is a cosmic meditation from Swedish singer Yogini.

"Yoga" is a perfect blend of East meets West. It's incredibly peaceful; music DOES have the power to quiet the mind.

Sean Johnson has done a fantastic job curating here: he has chosen songs from around the world--so we not only have Indian and American kirtan, but African and European musicians. The obvious more 'famous' (and excellent) choices are here, like Krishna Das and Jai Uttal, but we also have many lesser known Yoga musicians. So there is alot to discover here. I find that this CD is mellow enough to play in its entirety for a Massage session as well as for a Yoga class (I'm a healer and Yoga teacher). And the songs are interesting and unique. And its such a soothing collection. Many songs move me. It is truly healing music.

This was a gift for my wife at Christmas, who was also expecting our first child. She listened to it before the labor, and now while hanging out with the baby in the evening. She is a yoga instructor and plans to use it during some classes and practice, but right now it's awesome to just sit and relax too.

This CD is beautiful and I've been enjoying it very much. There is only one song that I'm not fond of, but all the others are great! It is relaxing, but has enough rhythm and variety to hold my interest so I use it as more than just for yoga. Lately I've been listening to it on the way to work.

I'm a yoga teacher and this is the BEST class music. I repeat one cut in particular for savasana. Putumayo's music is "world music", with its fascinating mix of instruments, voices, languages, and textures, and this is one of their best.

I have been practicing Yoga for more than 12 years and have always had a hard time focusing...until my instructor played this CD one day! I find myself humming away and before I knew it, the class was over and I was in a better mood. I have been searching trying to find this CD and am very excited to have found it now. It is very soothing and beautiful. Prior to hearing this, my favorite CD's seemed to be guitar or ocean sounds. The music from other countries sometimes made me too hyper. I never knew how melodic Sanscrit could be.

Having recently experienced kirtan music for the first time I wanted to hear a variety of offerings to guide further purchases. This disc has a good variety, and I have now ordered a couple more discs by artists featured on it (Krishna Das and Dasi). There are some haunting tracks on it, and I find it very relaxing to drive to. If everyone had this in their car there'd be no more road rage!
