JAI UTTAL

Dial M for Mantra

2007-12-03

Sanctity and the sacred undergo a succulent treatment of downtempo electronica as the passionate kirtan chants are put under the knife of remix artist Rara Avis. In Jai Uttal's "Dial M for Mantra" the raw and powerful sacred Sikh hymns are set to the ambient whisperings of modern zen dance to produce an ethereal backdrop to the soul. Rara Avis found Jai Uttal's classic kirtan chants oozing with rhythmic appeal when he broke them down to provide a modern trip-out into Indian mysticism. Featuring a compilation from Jai's album "Kirtan!" and collaborations such as "Music for Yoga and Other Joys," this 10 song album takes traditional chants into uncharted territory. - Daniel J.
