Album Notes
Longing for the Divine is a collection of devotional songs from India (Kirtan), presented in a World Fusion style. It was recorded in India, Poland and California and produced by Emam and Yashoda. The music and the mantras will uplift your soul and inspire your heart!
Thanks to some amazing musical friends, this album brings together Indian classical music (sarod, sitar, sarangi), Jazz (sax, acoustic bass), African sound (kora – African harp), rhythms on tabla and dumbak with wonderful vocal melodies and harmonies from Yashoda.
Over the years, Yashoda and Emam have spent many months in Hairakhan, Maha Avatar Babaji's beautiful ashram, in the foothills of the Himalayas. Emam visited Hairakhan in 1978 for the first time and spent much time with Babaji prior to his Maha Samadhi in 1984. Yashoda visited Hairakhan in 1986, for the first time. The songs heard on this album, are their interpretations and arrangements of chants they learned at the ashram.
The lyrics are powerful healing Sanskrit mantras, set to beautiful melodies and sang with much love and devotion.
We hope you enjoy the album and sing along to increase the healing powers of each song’s mantra. We have the lyrics on our web site. Please visit us and feel free to send us your comments (email address on our web site). Note that we have longer samples of the music on our web site (listed in the LINKS section).

May these songs bring you peace and joy!

soft and nice
I like soft Yashoda's voice and the mixture of jazz and Indian classical sound. Good for meditation and relaxation. Enjoy!
