This White Swan Healing Arts collection of mantras and chants by some of devotional music’s greatest voices is a sonic wonder – a warm, enveloping, deeply comforting listening experience. Pristinely recorded, diverse instrumentation sparkles with luminous dimension around the voices – which include Jai Uttal, Donna De Lory, Ben Leinbach, Krishna Das, Deva Premal & Miten, Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band, David Newman, and Wah!, to name a few.
The call-and-response practice of kirtan has grown exponentially out of the Bhakti Yoga movement, with kirtan gatherings all over North America helping to make live music interpersonal and local again. The mantras on this enchanting album hail from several traditions, from Kundalini to Krishna, and address various deities, e.g., Krishna, Hanuman, Radhe, Nataraj and Shiva, with each chant offered in an original, stylized interpretation by its singer.

Addicted!!! I am drinking in this whole album over and over! It stops and I have to play it again. I never do that!!! This feeds something deep. Antidote is aptly named!!!! Maybe it's the light, grounded, upbeat pace but there is so much I love words - energy - heart. Eager for more!!!

This album is one of my favorite electronic albums ever. Each song is great on it's own but when you listen to the album as a whole, it takes you on a journey. The only vocals in the album are in the first track, which is kind of a mantra that sets the tone for the whole album. The beautiful, meandering, contemplative, and sometimes playful melodies are perfect for any occasion. Any time I am stuck on what to listen to, I just listen to this. isthisnotadream
