The latest album by Sadhu Nada
, entitled "Chantrika
" is much like his earlier works, this too infuses various elements of gypsy music with sacred Sanskrit mantras. "Kali Maheshwari
" and its sister-song "Prabhate Uthiya
" have a haunting flamenco flavor.
"Hari Om Namah Shivaya
" is sweet and soulful, and is reminiscent of modern indie folk rock, while "Paratpara Shiva
" has some definite bluegrass influence.
He also includes a rendition of the popular Hebrew song, "Hava Nagila
", which makes a wonderful addition to any kirtan practice, since the song is about singing and rejoicing, and isn't that what kirtan is all about? I encourage listeners to check out his other albums as well, as he has produced a total of 8 in all.
They are all available on CD, or can be downloaded for donations from his website - sadhunada.com
