Then, there are some well done Ragas on here and a bit reminiscent of the style that Ravi Shankar plays. "Composition" selection 8 certainly is in a mellowing mood, maybe a somewhat compassionate feeling to it. 11. "Raga Chandranandan" would seem to be a more conventual melody of traditional Indian music.
Apparently, parts or all of this must have been from a movie "The Little Buddha" (Panchen Lama possibly?) or something and there are some sound clips of dialogue. The thing is, I don't know much about this movie or having even seen it anywhere so it is hard to say, "oh yes, that soundbyte really was impressive in the movie" but the overall nature of the CD is strong and diverse enough with a generous number of tracks. The dialogue clips do not amount to much time and perhaps there is some Buddhist philosophy/prayer to be learned from them.
Any fan of the movie "Little Buddha" will certainly enjoy this album. From what I've heard, this could be labeled as an extension of the original soundtrack to that movie. I heard at least three short tracks on this CD that are dialogue clips from the movie's various chanting sequences and several songs sound like they are expanded versions of music heard in the movie.
In my opinion, this could be a great combo with the Little Buddha soundtrack and DVD.
