Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2011
Weaving together soaring, angelic vocals and the celestial sound of crystal singing bowls, Ashana’s original sound is the forefront of an entirely new genre of healing music. She has received worldwide acclaim for her extraordinary blend of Western and ethnic instruments with the unique drone of the crystal singing bowls, along with mantra, chant and song, creating a harmonic fusion that provides the ultimate transcendent music for healing, relaxation and meditation.
Ashana’s new CD, “The Infinite Heart,” has just been released and is already receiving rave reviews. This stunning and elegantly crafted work features sacred chant, mantra and song celebrating the divine feminine. Breaking new ground, Ashana blends her signature sound with Sanskrit and Sikh mantra, Tibetan and Native American chant, a song of devotion to the Virgin Guadalupe in Spanish, a hypnotic version of The Prayer of St. Francis, and an angelic choir of voices singing music inspired by 11th century mystic, Hildegaard von Bingen. From the first note, no one can escape the power of love emanating from every piece. This is, perhaps, Ashana’s finest work to date.
“The Infinite Heart” is the fourth collaboration between Ashana and world-renowned producer, Thomas Barquee (Snatam Kaur, Seal), whose masterful and sensitive arrangements weave Ashana’s pristine vocals and crystal singing bowls into an extraordinary sensory experience of musical prayer. Also featured are Hans Christian (cello), Dominic Breaux (woodwinds), Simone Sello (guitars), Lynn Gudmundsen (violin, viola), bansuri flute, esraj, sarod and percussion by some of India’s finest musicians; and Thomas Barquee on keyboards, bass and vocals.
Audiences are in for a one-of-a-kind experience as this exceptionally gifted artist is taking her music on the road this fall. Ashana, accompanied by 50 crystal singing bowls, will give concerts and offer her renowned Crystalline Activation Ceremony in over seven cities, starting in Kansas City, MO on September 9 & 10, 2011. Other cities include Albany, NY (9/16 & 9/19), Andover, MA (9/23 & 9/24), Eliot, ME (9/30 & 10/1), Freeport, ME (10/4 & 10/5), Meredith, NH (10/7-10/9)¸ Montclair, NJ (10/13). Tickets and full details for all dates are available on line at http://www.AshanaMusic.com and http://www.brownpapertickets.com.
Listeners the world over describe Ashana’s live music events as “ecstatic,” “profoundly healing,” “breathtakingly beautiful” and “indescribable joy.” Join Ashana for a magical evening of sacred chant, song, and mystical poetry accompanied by keyboards and vibrant world percussion. Ashana’s exquisite new renditions of sacred chant, mantra and song from the world’s traditions have the power to carry you literally to the angelic realms, transporting you to transcendent states of deep peace and inner healing on the gentlest waves of devotion and compassion.
Ashana’s “Crystalline Activation Ceremony for Profound Manifestation and Healing” is a powerful and highly interactive evening that opens a floodgate of divine energies, pouring tremendous light into the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies. The result is a deep clearing of limited, contracted energetic patterns and realignment with your innate soul blueprint and connection with your Higher Self. Profoundly relaxing and peaceful, this sound meditation and candlelight ceremony is a time to create and hold powerful intentions in sacred space accompanied by the resonant healing vibrations of over 50 master alchemy crystal singing bowls.
There is a package discount for both events. Ashana is available for private sound healing and one-on-one personal crystalline activation session which can be scheduled through her website http://www.AshanaMusic.com.
Classically trained, with a degree in Voice from the prestigious Mannes College of Music in New York City, Ashana rose to the very top of the healing music genre with her first three CD recordings, “All Is Forgiven,” “Jewels of Silence,” and “Beloved.” Her intuitive vocal improvisations and masterful crystal bowl playing are featured in the documentary film “The Sound You Feel: Vibrations of Healing,” released by Beyond Words. Ashana travels across the US, Canada and abroad offering concerts, crystalline activations and sound healing workshops.
“Music is a blessing, a prayer, and a healing when it comes deeply from the heart,” says Ashana. “Music can transport us, lift us to the place where we gently let go and open to receive, reflect and remember the Love we truly Are. And as we begin to rest in this Love, our world is transformed. We see beauty in everything. And Heaven becomes fully present in every moment, right here on Earth.”
