107 Blue Heart-Boats, part I

Last modified July 24, 2006

This is the first part of a multi-instrument album, entitled “107 Blue Heart-Boats“. In this three part album, originally published in cassette form, Sri Chinmoy plays 107 different instruments. Sri Chinmoy is self-taught on all these instruments, and the concert is a strong illustration of his musical versatility.

The recording was made during a special 107 instrument concert on December 5th 1993, New York.

Most of the recordings are based on the compositions of Sri Chinmoy, but some are interpretations of other composers. Some highlights from the album include:

Jiban Debata with harmonium.
Bach’s ‘Minuet in G’ on the lap harmonium,
Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy ‘on the field organ
Rabindranath Tagore’s ‘Jana Gana Mana’ on recorder,
‘Silent Night and Moscow Nights’ on the harpsichord


Comment on album

The vast majority of the performances in this CD are extemporaneous, expressing an artistic freedom seldom seen in performers of music for meditation. Sri Chinmoy is at home both within the confines of his own melodies, as well as in the vast expanse of improvisation.

Sri Chinmoy‘s improvisations are musical landscapes of unknown origin; new worlds are being created as we listen. These are explorations of the inner space of our own imagination, infused with a spiritual energy that is at once playful and illumining. Enjoy!
