With his album Om Namah Shivaya, Robert Gass and his spiritually inspired troupe of singers breathed new life into the ancient Sanskrit chant of the title by pairing the words with dreamy Western instrumentation.
Shri Ram continues with the same concept, in this case setting the sacred words "Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram" against a ethereal backdrop of synthesizer mood, percussion, piano and guitar.
The first track, "Serenity" offers a slow, meditative take on the mantra, comprised mainly of soothing female vocals. The second, "Dance of Joy," presents a much more celebratory approach to the chant.
The singers of On Wings of Song once again prove to be unparalleled in their ability to evoke atmospheres that blend spirituality with ethereal beauty.
