TANTRA

Anugama
Nightingale Records
1998

Tantra, for want of a better term, can be considered 'sexual mysticism' -- the joining of a man and woman not only physically, but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually to achieve total Oneness and Unity, a completeness that is already there but has not yet been realized or accepted.

Tantra, the album, contains music which has been created to help increase a couple's ability to utilize love and sex for the purposes of meditation in order to achieve this perfect ecstasy. The first selection, Tantric Day, played exclusively on a G chord, is a masculine, sexually stimulating piece. The second, Full Moon Night, is feminine and meditative.

Quite frankly, one does not have to be making love to appreciate this album.

Instrumentation: classical guitar, flamenco guitar, recorder flute, native American flute, shakuhaji flute,native American drums, keyboards and voices
