  1. Mara Applebaum, New Age Retailer magazine

    :

    “Combining his renowned musical skills with Niladri Kumar’s inventive sitar, Englishborn Chinmaya Dunster invigorates the New Age music scene with Yoga Lounge, a fusion of Eastern and Western instruments and influences. The story of these artists’ initial meeting is inspiring: Dunster first heard Kumar in Pune, India, when Kumar was improvising The Beatles’ ‘Norwegian Wood.’ Dunster knew he had to meet this talented multi-instrumentalist, and a powerful musical partnership ensued.
    On Yoga Lounge, Kumar’s sitar is set against Dunster’s slow, easy grooves on eight tracks. Kumar at times plays his sitar almost like a guitar. As Dunster writes in the liner notes, Kumar seems aware of chords where other sitar players are concentrating on melody and rhythm. Yoga Lounge is a downbeat classic that works as a backdrop for yoga, the meditative arts, and evening relaxation.”

  4. Music Design In Review

    :

    “Imaginative compositions that blend Eastern and Western influences the domain of Chinmaya Dunster. With YOGA LOUNGE, he takes that classification to new levels, enlisting the assistance of sitar player Niladri Kumar to enhance the Eastern portion of the album. The music is meditative, yet groovy with light trip-hop rhythms as its driving force. Kumar’s sitar is played in a contemporary (and somewhat melodic) manner, alongside flute, synthesizer atmosphere and other Indian fusion elements. Yoga is the obvious activity of choice for the album, although it would be equally fitting for chilling out with friends or any time when an exotic mood is desired.”
