Review of Chinmaya Dunster’s ‘Meditation Ragas’

Chinmaya Dunster focuses his musical talents (sarod, guitars, keyboards, bamboo flute, and tabla) on the goal of creating musical meditations rooted in Indian ragas married to Western chord structures. Each of these seven meditations focuses on either a scent, body part, or the mind, e.g. sight, sound, taste, heart, and consciousness. Long-time fans of Dunster’s exquisite ability to fuse Indian music traditions and motifs with those of other cultures will thoroughly enjoy these unique sonic explorations, which, for the most part, are low-key but still solidly melodic and varied in their motifs and instrumentation.
