CD Review – At the Temple Door, by Ajeet Kaur

This album of Eastern meditations and mantras sung by Ajeet Kaur has a singer-songwriter vibe to it, thanks to the folksy, new age styling of guitarist Todd Boston.

In addition to providing vocals, Kaur plays harmonium and piano, and Boston also plays flute, percussion, and sarod.

Adding to the lush, layered, and textured sound are Hans Christian on cello, Ramesh Kannan on percussion, Snatum Kaur on vocals, Ramdass Khalsa on clarinet, piano, and vocals, and Sukhmani Kaur Rayat on tabla.

This is an enlightening and accessible take on Eastern culture and tradition framed in a Western musical setting.
