Product Description

Recorded in Katmandu, Yoga Ragas presents a moving collaboration between four musicians who expertly entwine the sound of their instruments during two improvisational sessions. Together they blend the Bansuri flute, sitar, tanpura, tabla, and ragini into a meditative, slow-moving, and exquisitely entrancing musical journey. Their expert musicianship creates an atmosphere ideal for meditation, yoga, and sweet, quiet times.

Authentic ragas! Recorded in Katmandu, Manose and his fellow musicians contemplatively weave the sitar, percussion and Bansuri flute into slow trance-like compositions, creating a powerful moving mediation. The transformative harmony of Yoga Ragas takes a devotion and the essence of inner bliss to a higher level. Ideal music for yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, moving mantra, relaxation and times when you need to connect with your spirit.

Yoga Ragas includes two evening ragas, “Puriya Kalyan” and “Mangal Dhoni” – both wistful and haunting, with nighttime clearly encouraging individual meditation. Manose’s refined, individualistic flute artistry — which we in Vancouver enjoyed in a concert with Deva Premal in 2006 – really charms. It is Manose’s ongoing pleasure to be one of Nepal’s musical ambassadors to the world.

    “A soothing weave of beautiful instrumental music. The music invites you to follow a quiet path by gently leading you one note at a time. The threads of music quietly direct you to a place of relaxation and calm. Yoga Ragas would blend into meditation, hatha yoga, and quite times.”

    “Manose Singh and his fellow musicians weave contemplative sitar, percussion, and flute into slow trance-like compositions, creating an amazing moving meditation. The transformative harmony of Yoga Ragas takes devotion and the essence of inner bliss to a higher level. Ideal music for Tai Chi, meditation, moving mantra, relaxation, and times when you need to connect with your spirit.”

    “These 72 minutes of improvisational Indian Ragas guide one’s awareness deeply inside to facilitate profound states of meditation and calmness.
    Nepali musician Manose s delicate yet reverberating bansuri flute playing is skillfully weaved together with three other musicians playing sitar, tabla and tambura. The result is a graceful, slow moving, soothing, and magical Cd perfect for yoga and other healing arts.”

  4. Benjamin Ivry, Spirituality & Health Magazine

    :

    “In his Thoughts in Solitude (Shambhala), the American Trappist monk Thomas Merton calls solitude a way to defend the spirit against the “murderous din of our materialism.” Revel in the sound of the Katmandu-born musician Manose Singh’s bansuri (bamboo) flute on his latest CD, Yoga Ragas, which includes two evening ragas, “Puriya Kalyan” and “Mangal Dhoni” – both wistful and haunting, with nighttime clearly encouraging individual meditation. Concentrating on Manose Singh’s refined, individualistic artistry, some listeners may recall the lines of poet W. H. Auden about how we can become more aware of other’s existence by spending time alone: “Men of their neighbors become sensible:/ in solitude, for company.”
