“Mala Ganguly & David Vito Gregoli’s release “Prana – Healing Tones for Life” soothes the savage modern soul. When I first heard it, I was driving and pulled over to take a deep breath.
Instead of flooding us with loud bhajans, the music gently invites the listener in, to find the magic of the yoga in the sounds.
The vocals gently teach us how to use our ears to do yoga simply by listening intently.
Healing Tones for Life does not assault us with the cool factor so often present in the Indian chanting groove which is so in now.
Instead, there is a sense of gently showing us how Shiva and Krishna can help us through our own struggles to manage stress, and experience music in a new way.
