Music to Dance, Travel and Dream
Using drums, rattles, didgeridoo, bells, cymbals, mixed choir, vocal mantras from around the world, mouth percussion, string instruments and synthesizer, Nanda Re presents to us her astounding compositions carrying flavors of many different cultures.
At times dynamic and energizing and at times soft and introspective, this music connects one to the power of the Earth through a sound journey that unites the elements of air, water, fire and ether with the Earth - soft and rhythmical like breathing, dynamically ebbing like the sea, passionately blazing like fire and deeply spiritual like the spirit of the Earth.
This album can be used for exploration through body movement - like in trance-dance - as well as for more quiet inner journeying.
"Malimba Records has done it again—released a recording that is a true revelation and also sets the bar high in its respective genre (chant)." - Retailing Insight Magazine
BodyHealing - the fruitful collaboration between Shastro and shamanic healer/musician Nanda Re - was specifically created to support all healing modalities and to help increase one's sense of harmony with nature and with oneself.
Shastro's flutes are purposefully interwoven with Nanda Re's music tapestries, where cosmic and kinesiological principles are used to help unfold the full effect of the music tones. This unique sound experience is further enriched by the connection of shamanic knowledge and the power of mantras.
BodyHealing takes place in a world of gentle rhythmic, flowing and multilayered sounds. Soft acoustic percussion with chill-out elements, singing bowls and bells, the sound of the ocean, tambura, harp and the orchestra strings lay the foundation for the soothing melodies of the cello, flute and ud as well as for the gently sung mantras, creating one hour of pure peace, spaciousness and tranquility.
