CD Review – Shivoham: A Journey into Bliss, by Manish Vyas

For the second week in a row, we have another album of Indian music framed in the context of western sounds, this time presented by world music artist and tabla player Manish Vyas.

Vyas sings a variety of Indian mantras and devotional songs, and the combination of his entrancingly hypnotic tenor and Indian and western instrumentation blended together results in lush and soothing sounds that make you feel like you're traveling through exotic lands.

Like last week's featured album, this is a great introduction to Indian music that is both accessible and enjoyable.
