ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mantrananda iis a New Age Duo featuring singer/songwriters Jeff Bonilla and Chakra Healer Vicki Howie. "Chakra Love" is their debut CD which includes all seven chakras and bonus healing songs. Their music is combines sanskrit and english and their memorable melodies are wrapped by both their soothing voices. Their musical style is composed of acoustic, pop, and electronica. Each chakra song incorporates the Sanskrit name for the chakra as well as other musical elements to boost and balance that particular chakra.

Vicki Howie is the creator of Chakra Boosters Temporary Healing Tattoos which are sold world wide. She is a master hypnotherapist, Life Coach and advanced yoga instructor. Music is a natural extension for Vicki's on going work healing others. For more information on Vicki and her healing tatoos check out Chakraboosters.com.

Jeff Bonilla is a former police officer and has been writing and performing music in many styles for over 20 years. He feels at home performing mantra based healing music. What drew him to this project was Vicki's vision that each song remain true to its chakra. "There are a lot of chakra albums out there but what I found was that for the most part, most of the chakra music sound very ethereal and indistinguishable. So that was the challenge. On our CD we use the seed sound of each chakra and captured the essence/element in the music and lyrics. So 3rd Chakra Manipura whose element is Fire, sounds fiery and upbeat and not ethereal like the 6th Chakra Ajna, which is an upper chakra and should sound ethereal."

Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus
“Chakra Love” is the debut CD from a Los Angeles-based duo of master hypnotherapist, life coach and advanced yoga instructor, Vicki Howie and veteran musician, producer, and film director Jeff Bonilla who record together under the name Mantrananda. The word means "the bliss of spiritual sayings (mantras)." Incidentally, for those who may not be familiar, chakras are the energy centers of the body as described in Eastern spiritual teachings. There are a number of chakra-related albums that have been released over the past few decades and “Chakra Love” is certainly a unique entry into this highly specialized niche. While the concept springs from Eastern spiritual teachings that have come down through the ages and have been interpreted musically in a variety of ways, I don’t think I’ve heard it done as a vocal album with such a strong instrumental background that incorporates as many contemporary musical styles. I didn’t expect as much rock and pop influence, although I really enjoyed it. With the current popularization of kirtan and devotional music mixed with electronica, there is certainly a growing market for an album like “Chakra Love.”

The recording is well produced by Jeff and the energetic balance between he and Vicki is perfect – like yin and yang. Also, as a guitarist myself, I was constantly aware of Jeff’s playing, and in particular the exquisite rich chorus-laden tones he gets – nice synthesizer textures and electronic effects too, as well as adding additional vocals. The thing that stood out most to me about Vicki is the purity of her voice and her soul, which shines through the mix, and her absolutely clear intention to charge these songs with spiritual energy for healing and upliftment. On the album, Vicki chants beautifully in English and Sanskrit, as well as providing inspiring spoken word segments. I also give her a lot of credit for having the vision for this project and not giving up until she found the exact right person to collaborate with to make it a reality even though it took many years. “Chakra Love” is a thoroughly modern and highly accessible take on ancient spirituality that is sure to be warmly welcomed by a growing number new age music lovers.
