CD Review – Attuning to Oneness: The Harmonic Ascension, by Paradiso and Rasamayi

The duo of Paradiso and Rasamyi team up again to collaborate on this album of mystical music.
Paradiso plays didjeridoo, keyboards, theremin, and gong, and Rasamayi performs chants as well as plays crystal merkaba and Alchemy crystal singing bowls.
The music is very somber and reverent, with Paradiso’s keyboards providing a subtle foundation over which Rasamayi’s soothing voice placates, accented by Paradiso’s theremin and gong and Rasamayi’s crystal merkaba and Alchemy crystal singing bowls.
This CD sets the perfect mood for meditation, relaxation, or just a quiet evening. It’s even ideal for a nighttime drive, although the album’s back cover warns against driving or operating heavy machinery while listening to the record. I would say to heed this advice if you’re easily susceptible to falling asleep at the wheel while listening to quiet music or sounds. Otherwise, it’s a great accompaniment to and facilitator for driving, which is itself an act of meditation requiring concentration and focus.
--Raj Manoharan
