Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Govi (guitar, sitar); Chinmaya Dunster (sarod); Bikram Ghosh (bansuri).
Recording information: Global Spirit Music, Maui, HI.
Arranger: Karunesh.
There are New Age artists who convey spiritual passion, and there are those who convey spiritual calm. What's exciting about Karunesh's albums is his seemingly effortless mastery of both. The composer and producer offers another collection of melodic instrumentals that reflect the colorful pageantry of India. Collaborating with Indian classical musicians on traditional instruments (sarod, Carnatic violin, sitar), the songs here are a travelogue of humid green fields, temples, the rushing Ganges River, and the ancient mysteries infused in the water and land.
Karunesh's compositions unfold slowly but, like the South Indian classical songs they emulate, build up quiet steam. On "Mount Kailash," guest artist Bikram's bansuri flute beckons like a snake charmer's, giving way to a potent and sensuous ambient number. The mind-bending "And the Grass Grows By Itself" hovers around the Western pop musical scale but radiates a powerful yogic energy. Like all of Karunesh's albums, CALL OF THE MYSTIC makes for rapt listening but can also be a soothing backdrop for meditation, yoga, or bodywork.
Artist Overview
Karunesh ("compassion for all sentient beings" in Sanskrit) started life in Cologne, Germany as Bruno Reuter. He taught himself to play the organ while recuperating from a motorcycle accident. This dovetailed with a spiritual awakening that brought him to the feet of his guru, Osho. He recorded his first album of synthesizer music, SOUNDS OF THE HEART, in 1987 to great acclaim, and has continued to release albums that speak to the soul and prepare the mind for contemplation of higher truths. After his guru died in 1991, Karunesh released a series of albums in his honor, specifically for meditation.
