Format: Audio CD
I have not read much about the members of Xumantra or their artistic aims, but fortunately, their music pretty much seems to speak for itself. This is not so much an album as it is a headspace- created by gongs, bells, bowls, and other metallic implements used in meditation and ritual in the east- which will serve to relax and center you, no matter what your beliefs may be. Buy this album, buy some incense (I recommend Nag Champa), turn out the lights, and just EXIST in the music, if you have the courage. This is not party music, and it is not 'easy listening'.. it is simply sculpted sound with magnificent power and scope. And yet it is extremely minimalistic. A person conditioned by commercial radio and television might call it boring, but the fact that Xumantra doesn't call to mind the flashing lights and flickering images of our modern world only adds to their appeal. If you like this, you may also want to look into the works of Steve Roach, Robert Rich, percussionists like Jim McGrath and tuvan singers like Jim Cole (Colescence).

I am listening to this CD as we speak it is wonderful and unique that was what I was looking for. It has bells as well as the bowls and it makes an interesting combination! I recommend this CD highly!

I have always been entranced by the sustained tones of Tibetan bowls. Incorporating these beautiful tones into songs that have a recognizable developed melody line makes this collection especially enjoyable.

This is just not for me. I thought there would be more to it. I found it to be quite agitating.

This is a very short review. I learned of Xumantra from a friend and listened to the samples and was quite interested.
I ordered this from Amazon and TWICE they sent me the wrong CD, "Singing Bowls" by Xumantra. I had separately ordered "Singing Bowls". After two attempts, Amazon has a policy of giving up on an order. I even ordered this from someone on eBay and got "Singing Bowls".
So, does this piece of work really exist? Is it cursed in some way? Am I cursed in some way?
