ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

This music is a coming together of many threads, woven into
a tapestry of musicians, musical styles, life work, voices and
energies, creating a union (yoga) of sounds and rhythms for
meditation, healing, relaxation, and self-realization.


Arising from the deepest spark of self-awareness dwelling
within us, the power of musical vibration can be transforming physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Drawing on the
ancient wisdom of India, using mantra and traditional
instruments like the santoor, veena, and tablas, yet also incorporating modern instruments, musical structures, and recording technology, this music is designed to transcend boundaries of every nature.


Each song gathered here uses the qualities of pitch, meter,
and tambor to create a peaceful space where the intrinsic
powers of the body/mind/soul can function in unitive harmony.
In addition, the entire album is constructed to lead the listener
on an inner journey. Although some of the instruments and
rhythms may not be familiar, everything merges organically
to create a whole that is both soothing and energizing.


Whether you are chanting along with the voices of The
Enchanters or using the music as a background for yoga practice,
massage, meditation, or just to relax, you will find in this
music not just something to listen to with your ears, but something you will experience with your entire being.

Mingling of traditions
With a subtle ear, Fred Cantor has successfully intertwined Indian kirtan music with Western melody, rhythm and improvisation. This is music to settle into, to settle the world around you, music that will, as the last cut hints at, get you higher than ever before. The voices and the instrumentalists are superb as is the overall production. Kudos!

Listening to Fred Cantor's album "Gatherings" is a unique transformative experience.  The richly layered, holistic tracks come from a place of peace and understanding.  They sooth the listener and offer a harmonious counterpoint to the rush and shallowness of everyday life. Here is a window to experience a deeper dimension. 

Fred's skill and deep knowledge of the spirit and mechanics of music, along with the effort of the talented musicians makes "Gatherings" a unique contribution to the world of music.  As the title suggests, the coming together of ancient and modern, eastern and western elements connects us to the unifying consciousness which is none other than the Self in all.  I cannot think of any other medium which is as effective in integrating the diversity and fragmentation of modern life. 

We usually associate spiritual progress with arduous effort.  Here we are offered an opportunity to relax and allow the music to untangle our consciousness and align it once again with  that which is wholesome and peaceful within us.  It is as if Fred has done the work for us, and all we have to do is enjoy the music, and in the process find ourselves transported towards greater self-awareness.

Fred's understanding of "nada," the yoga of sound, and rhythm, the primordial basis of music, has made it possible for him to created this unique album.  Together these elements ground as well as open up the listener's mind.  The consequent peace and harmony is a real joy to experience.

"Gatherings" is highly recommended to all spiritual seekers, music lovers and to the general public.  Do not miss this opportunity to experience the healing and transformative touch of sound and silence performed by a group of knowledgeable and talented musicians.
