ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Devotional soul music
Sanskrit chanting and kirtan

SWAHA performs music that is both inspired and uplifting. It is an enticing blend of ethereal Sanskrit vocals soaring over rich earthy rhythms.
The songs are composed by Meenakshi and Ron Reid.

Meenakshi's experience with chanting began in 1988 on her first trip to India to study with Swami Shyam. Her background was in the performing arts, but her Bhakti (devotion) for God came through her experiences of meditation and chanting. She recorded her first CD of Sanskrit chants in India in July 2000 entitled "Prayers". (To order "Prayers" click on to www.cdbaby.com/meenakshi)Since then she has been leading kirtan, chanting workshops and classes, meditation, yoga philosophy, Sanskrit and Ashtanga Yoga in Canada and the U.S. Her voice has a sweet, ethereal and open-hearted quality, full of devotion and surrender.

Their new Cd "Salutations" is a collaboration with her partner and keyboardist Ron Reid, co-founder of Downward Dog Yoga Centre.
Ron Reid is co-owner and director of Downward Dog Yoga Centre in Toronto, Canada. Prior to the opening of Downward Dog in July 1997, he spent many years in the music business performing and writing music for performance, film and dance.

"(Meenakshi's)open-hearted chanting soothes the heart and frees the spirit" ~Krishna Das

"SWAHA's 'Salutations' is soft and sweet and full of heart."
~Jai Uttal

"SWAHA's richly textured, trans-cendental vocals and beautiful melodies make each song a delight!"
~ Dr. Robert Svoboda, Ayurvedacharya

"Sweet, fresh water springing from an ancient well. I just keep wanting to dive back in to the green depths of SWAHA's music. The track 'Shambho Mahadeva' is an astonishing liquid play of light and shadow." ~Dave Stringer

I was recently introduced to your music by my personal trainer, and wanted to just send along this brief note to express to you how incredibly meaningful the music has been for me, and how much I appreciate what you have put out into the world. Meenakshi's haunting voice, coupled with an amazingly vibrant instrumental adaptation of (what I think are) traditional Indian rhythms (with some hints of 1960's rock music in the keyboards) speaks to me in a very direct, visceral way. So...thank you very much!!

Powerful, high energy, one to play over and over
I was connected with Swaha's music thru one of my Yoga teachers and have found it to become one of my favorite to not only play in class - but to share with friends. It is literally addicting!

Peaceful and Revitalizing
Swaha, Salutations is unequivocally the best meditation and relaxation CD I own. I find it very soothing, calming and refreshing all at the same time – it can lull me to sleep at night or enliven and focus me for a meeting. Even if someone were new to this style of music I believe they would find this CD more than enjoyable. It may lead to a new path of enlightenment that you didn’t even dream of before.
