Editorial Reviews

Maneesh de Moor is another of those music mystics who tarts up his work with Eastern imagery and metaphysical debris, right down to the hybrid Dutch-Indian name. But when you brush away the verbiage, you're left with an ambient album that is far more sophisticated than the cosmic clutter would lead you to believe. Eastern sounds abound on Sadhana, although not in the obvious ways you might expect from the Sanskrit title, which means "moving toward enlightenment." De Moor mixes live performances, studio electronics, and ambient sounds in subtle ways. Recordings of Australian frogs create his rhythms on "Raindance," where bird sounds are used to build tension more than ambience. On "Silent Ganges," chants and mantras are electronically filtered and arranged in choruses, resulting in a languid trance-pop piece. There's nothing here that hasn't been rendered on the Buddha Bar collections, but De Moor avoids the electro-loop grooves and goes a bit deeper with tracks like "Jewel in the Lotus," on which he creates a 10-minute swirl of guttural Tibetan chants, didgeridoo, surging synth patterns, and ominous frame drums for a drone symphony. Maneesh de Moor's roots aren't in the world of chill, but rather early ambient. That's evident throughout the disc, but especially on the final track, a Harold Budd-like ambient piano meditation that drifts dreamily off the edge. --John Diliberto

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensual, provocative rhytms transport you October 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Sadhana is an evocative, rich, and sensual journey which should not be missed. The entire recording is incredibly rich with rhythm, which will soothe, relax and transport you if you are willing to let go and let it take you there. Hypnotic at times in its myriad intricate musical intensity, your body will want to move in tune with these earthy rhythms to that place of total submission and relaxation. Whether you use this music in your bodywork practice or in your meditation practice, or just for the shear enjoyment of it, this recording is guaranteed to transport you to that place you indeed want to go.

As a body worker, I look for both transformational and relaxing music and this compilation is magical its journey. Maneesh De Moor has managed to engage all of one's senses in this provocative recording and transports one to that soulful place that one goes to relax and renew. The music is indeed soothing to one's soul as the listener is guided from the very first note, on such a lush, sensual, primitative, and earthy journey, that one cannot help but "let go". So, let go, "feel" the music as it weaves its way to your very essence, and be prepared to become transported and entwined in one incredible sensual, musical experience. You will want to play this cd over and over again, and you will experience something new each and every time as your senses become intoxicated with the rhythms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suzie Housley, Book Reviewer December 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
"The pleasure we feel in music springs from the obedience which is in it "

-Henry David Thoreau

The exotic tunes of India, Tibet, Yoruba, Native American and Sufi worlds are all brought to you in this one amazing CD. Each sound penetrates your ears and subconscious and tells its own unique story. From the beginning, you are projected to a far-off land; it is as though you are encountering a spiritual oasis. With each rich descriptive sound you are able to hear and feel all that is occurring. Throughout each tune, you feel as though your body is floating aimlessly, as if an out-of-body encounter is taking place as all your problems are suddenly lifted from your shoulders. It is as though you are transported to a world where music is your constant companion.

"The earth has music for those who listen."

- William Shakespeare

Sadhana has quickly become one of my most cherished CDs. Each time I listen to it I find I am rewarded with my sense of inner peace. The creation of this CD is a true work of art and unlimited talent. Each song provides a vast array of musical sounds that consist of the true essence of nature, the rich, flowing sound of water, and crickets far off in the nightlife. This is just a sample of what you will find when you first press the play button.

"In music the passions enjoy themselves."

- Friedrich Nietzsche

Sadhana is a reflection of greatness; it provides an endless amount of mesmerizing music. I find that I play it each day as I do my daily yoga routine. I feel the sultry sounds greatly enhance my workout by allowing me to get in tune with each of the many moves. The tempo this CD generates compliments this activity the best of any that I have experienced. Sadhana is known as an aphrodisiac for the soul. It lives up to this endorsement to the fullest capacity. Highest recommendation goes out to this exceptional CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Mystical Bliss February 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This cd is sheer bliss. There are so many different sounds occuring at once that it takes you on a mystical journey. It really invokes your spirit to move and dance. I love the womans voice in "Raindance" and several other tracks. Also the use of the digeridoo and drums combined with the chanting and electronic affects make it very interesting. The flow is unbelieveable even though every track is quite different. I have listened to many "trance like" CD's and this is by far the best one I've heard. I do a form of Bodywork I call Trance Movement Massage and this will be one of my first picks to use for my practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD is great May 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have a large collection of meditation and relaxation CD's. This one is about the best. Not too much of the groove music that is popular and not too much music on prosac. Just right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contemplative and seductive September 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
An interesting experience of meditative and somber tones, easy to wander into another world of inner peace. The last three tracks are easily the most suitable for meditation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting Journey! June 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What an audio delight this album is! Most enchanting is the subtle interweaving of sacred vocal chant underlying the beautiful and often mesmerizing musical journey created by this artist. I do intuitive healing work and find this music provides a soothing tonal landscape to help a client release pain and tension and experience peace. I will most certainly explore more from Manesh DeMoor.
