Additional DescriptionMore Details

Kashi Kol­lec­tive get their name from the holy city of Banaras in India, which orig­i­nally was known as Kashi, San­skrit for Illu­mi­nated. The city is an incred­i­ble mix­ture of rich and poor, old and young, and hap­pens to be the spir­i­tual mecca for Hin­dus. It also has a rich his­tory of mak­ing music, and many of the finest musi­cians of our time hail from this city. When the trav­eler lands on the banks of the Ganges, often they are lured to take a boat ride along its shores in a row­boat, an expe­ri­ence one will never for­get as you pass tem­ples, ashrams, ancient fortresses and end­less bathers and pilgrims.

Between these songs are sound­scapes of this mag­i­cal jour­ney, from the oars hit­ting the water, the bird­song and the sad­hus chant­ing their mantras, you can expe­ri­ence this jour­ney as well.
The Dalai Lama is included three times pro­vid­ing some very insight­ful mes­sages, and chil­dren recite an old Cree Indian prophecy. As well, the first day cries of Kashi, the son of Stephen Bellm can be heard on ‘Cres­cent in the Sky.’

The album is com­posed by Stephen Bellm, who per­forms on piano, gui­tar and tabla. It is laced with beau­ti­ful per­for­mances from David Mages on flute and sax, as well as numer­ous vocal­ists and other instrumentalists.

This is a must have World Fusion Album that will brighten your day and bring peace and hap­pi­ness. Enjoy!

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Kashi Kol­lec­tive were proud to work with NineWells, as well as being intro­duced and col­lab­o­rat­ing with one of India’s finest musi­cians, Rajen­dra Tere­de­sai, a pre­mier Bansuri player from Pune India.
The album is a clean rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Indian fusion, uti­liz­ing the sounds of the tan­pura, a clas­si­cal Indian instru­ment, the back­ground drone that is a strong foun­da­tion for all clas­si­cal music. With solid tabla rhythms and arrange­ments that rep­re­sent Indian ragas per­formed on piano, the album is a cohe­sive col­lec­tion of beau­ti­ful sounds.
There is an even bal­ance of per­for­mances from David Mages on Hulusi, the Chi­nese folk reed instru­ment, Sax­o­phone and sil­ver Flute, and Rajen­dra Teredesai’s heav­enly Bansuri play­ing.
Kari Field joins the group again and pro­duces a great per­for­mance on ‘Dream­ing in Color’, another Alap based song.
The album aims at bring­ing these diverse instru­ments together as one into a seam­less jour­ney through the shad­ows and into the light.
