Comments:

The album starts with two lovely chanting tracks, "Calling Sita Ram" and "Jai Sita Ram", but then devolves into new age song and the vocals suddenly become nasal. The musicianship throughout it good. This is generally a little more pop and up-tempo than most New Age music. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
