Kirtan is one of the oldest sacred music genres of the world originating from India's devotional traditions. The unique blend of music and chant provides a soothing melody of inspiration, brings peace and connectedness, and can take one into a state of deep meditation and relaxation. These ancient chants are sung in Sanskrit, the classical language of India.
Nūtone Music--a new label dedicated to releasing inspirational music--will celebrate National Yoga Month with the release of three offerings including the A Collection of Kirtan Chant compilation as well as new albums from Bhagavan Das and Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band, all available now. Select Nūtone Music artists will be performing nationwide at festivals and events surrounding the first-ever National Yoga Month celebration (www.yogamonth.org).
Nūtone Music has partnered with Whole Foods for the release of A Collection of Kirtan Chant--a collection of music for health and wellness which creates peace of mind through the ancient practice of Kirtan and Sanskrit mantras. Designed for those who desire to achieve wellness through meditation, health and yoga in today’s busy lifestyle, A Collection of Kirtan Chant exclusively features the best new musical offerings from an array of Nūtone Music recording artists: Krishna Das, Wah!, Jai Uttal, Donna De Lory, David Newman, Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band, Wade Imre Morissette, Bhagavan Das and Reema Datta. The compilation features the top musicians from the worlds of chant and yoga and is now available in Whole Foods stores nationwide.
“This is a well-balanced compilation from some of the top artists in the music genre most often heard in Yoga classes,” explains NŪTONE MUSIC founder and Nettwerk Music Group CEO Terry McBride. “It’s a blend of Eastern chants with Western melodies that is relaxing and conducive to the flow of Yoga. Whole Foods is an amazing Wellness retailer and that aligns really well with the theme of the music on this compilation. It simply makes sense for us to join forces.”
