“Songs of the Soul” Concert — April 2009

Last modified June 14, 2009

Dear listeners, as you may know, Sri Chinmoy left the body on October 11, 2007. For yogis and spiritual masters, this is called entering Mahasamadhi.

Since arriving in America in 1964, Sri Chinmoy dedicated his life to fostering the individual and collective progress of humanity. As a musician, artist, poet, writer, philosopher, athlete and humanitarian, his life was of constant and indefatigable self-giving.

After his Mahasamadhi, his meditation students decided to offer a series of free concerts worldwide, titled Songs of the Soul, in honor of Sri Chinmoy. As you may already know from selections in this Radio Sri Chinmoy site, many of Sri Chinmoy’s students are accomplished musicians.

The following selections are from the recent Songs of the Soul concert in New York, which took place on April, 2009 at the famous Riverside Church.

Here are some notes about the Songs of the Soul concerts, extracted from their official website:

Sri Chinmoy’s heart-warming, soul-stirring music has been acclaimed and celebrated by musical giants including Ravi Shankar, Leonard Bernstein and Quincy Jones. Over his lifetime, Sri Chinmoy offered almost 800 concerts around the world, all of them free of charge, in the belief that the inner peace and happiness he sought to convey through his music was everyone’s birthright.

Songs of the Soul is proud to continue that self-giving tradition by offering all their concerts free of charge.

The Gandharva Loka Orchestra is a 75-member international orchestra, featuring star musicians and singers from over 15 countries, working as a seamless ensemble. The Orchestra was formed in 2007 and is led by Panchajanya Burri, a classically trained guitarist, whose symphonic arrangements of Sri Chinmoy’s pure and simple melodies bring the Songs of the Soul to its dramatic and moving finale.”

We hope you enjoy the sweetness and power, the height and depth of these soul-stirring melodies by Sri Chinmoy, offered by an international cast of his meditation students.
