Surprisingly powerful and extremely moving, THE PRAYER CYCLE from Jonathan Elias is an album of harmonic voices singing in unison of the joy and pain that exists in our world. The album consists of nine movements, each fleshed out by the lush baroque instrumentation of the English Chamber Orchestra. The album's main attraction, however, is the vocals. Quite the diverse line-up, the album features Alanis Morissette singing in Hungarian and French, Malian singer Salif Keita, late superstars Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Ofra Haza, Linda Ronstadt, the beautiful sounds of the American Boy Choir and many others. Despite the marquee names, nobody grandstands on this album - it's a group effort, a choral work for the new millennium that conveys passionate spirituality without focusing on any particular religion.
YOGA RHYTHM is 60 minutes of continuous music designed to be used to accompany yoga practice, trance dance and various other healing arts methods. Mixed up by DJ Free and featuring special guest percussionist Brent Lewis, listeners are provided with earthy, medicinal rhythms paired with the enchanting sounds of sitar (T. Gordon Anderson), piano (Peter Schimke), rattles and chant vocals. SOULFOOD consulted with Kripalu Center for Yoga Fellowship President Jonathon Foust, Esalen Institute Yoga/Movement Instructor Ana Poirier, Certified Yoga Instructor Rexanne Diehl and Nepalese Yoga instructor Swami Ji on the direction of the music.
