Temple of Sound & Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali
People’s Colony No. 1
There’s a whole lotta chantin’ going on! People’s Colony No. 1 is plum full of ethnic, long driving chants and meditations. Aside from the title track (which surprisingly is a fast paced dance song!) the whole album is rather Yoga-worthy and very deep. It’s not translated, so the actual lyrics could be a bunch of just about anything, but the quality of the music makes up for it. It’s by far not the best new world CD ever, but it’s decent, especially if you’re heavy into chants.
