India: World-Cynosure – Part 2

Last modified June 19, 2006

In 1997, Sri Chinmoy offered 50 Peace Concerts in honour of the 50th anniversary of India’s independence, August 15th, 1947. This CD offers great moments from these 50 different concerts.

Notes on album

This CD is a wonderful collection of varied performances by Sri Chinmoy. From flute to synthesizer to vibraphone, we get to experience many different textures, moods and modes of musical expression. In some instruments, such as the harmonium, Sri Chinmoy sounds almost ancient, like a performance recorded thousands of years ago; so simple and traditional is his singing. In others, we feel like we are traveling in cosmic spaces never explored before, as if new worlds are opening before our very eyes.

One common thread through all this, though: it is great music for meditation, very expansive and pure, like water from a mountain spring. Enjoy!
