About prebooking items

Yoga is Putumayo’s first Yoga CD sampler, featuring songs specially selected to accompany your yoga practice and serve as a relaxing soundtrack for daily life. Rooted in ancient Hindu, Buddhist and Jain traditions, the practice of yoga has evolved over millenniums. Adopted today by millions of people around the world, yoga can provide the tools for greater health and spiritual awareness. Music has long had a close relationship with yoga, particularly in the Bhakti tradition, which incorporates musical chants into its practice and creates the Naad - the sacred sound current

With his extensive background as a yoga instructor and musician, Sean Johnson, founder of Wild Lotus Yoga studio in New Orleans, collaborated closely with Putumayo on making the album Yoga. Combining songs used in his own yoga classes with Putumayo’s global research, the album Yoga creates a musical flow that works as well for any kind of yoga practice as at home for meditation or relaxation. Sean’s expansive liner notes, which include a glossary of yoga terms, will help you to better understand the practice of yoga and its relationship to music.

Yoga features renowned musicians from around the world. British-born, South Indian artist Susheela Raman duets with Kenyan singer Ayub Ogada on the harmonious “O Rama.” Krishna Das, well-known performer of traditional Indian Kirtan-style music, demonstrates an invigorating call-and-response chanting on “Hanuman Baba (Dub Farm Remix).” Costa Rican group Amounsulu create a serene atmosphere by blending sitars and glass bottles on their song “El Bosque Eterno de los Niños” (Children’s Eternal Rainforest). On “Bolo Ram”, celebrated western devotional musician Wah! sings a tranquil verse that is believed to bring bliss to all who chant it. Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band are known for their beautiful, melodic chanting as displayed on “Om Hari Om/Sharanam Ganesha (Refuge).”

This album also features the world fusion group The Lucknow Project, US Kirtan artist Gaura Vani And As Kindred Spirits, renowned producer and musician Ben Leinbach and percussionist Geoffrey Gordon, Bhajan and Kirtan singer Karnamrita Dasi and the British music producer Niraj Chag. This eclectic collection of great yoga music is rounded out by Swedish musician and yogateacher Yogini, Senegalese singer Ablaye Cissoko with the German trumpeter Volker Goetze, the duo Shantala and the Bhutanese monk Lama Gyurme with French pianist Jean-Philippe Rykiel.
All together, the album Yoga is a great musical experience of the vastness and spirit of yoga and spirituality.
