	1998 - Meta Records (USA), MT-001 (CD)


Meta Records creates a fascinating approach to the seven chakra centers. Intertwining the poetic Hindu story of the adventurous Kundalini (a small snake coiled at the base of the spine that journeys upward to divine enlightenment) with the description and story of the chakras and their meanings, a different innovative and talented musician adds his or her creative touch to each one. The diversity includes legendary saxophonist Pharaoh Sanders, Indian tabla master Trilok Gurtu, cornetist Graham Hayes, UK bassist Jah Wobble, guitarist Nicky Skopelitis, and San Francisco DJ Cheb i Sabbah. The poetic story features the voices of Indian star Sarita Choudry, actors Willem Dafoe, Umar Bin Hassan, and Dechen Thurman. Sharon Gannon and David Life, founders of the Jivamukti Yoga Center, also join in the production. A thoroughly enjoyable CD.
