Mudra songs Product Information
"Mudra" is a Sanskrit word that means "hand gesture." In Buddhism, mudras represent particular practices or beliefs; in the Vedic rituals of ancient India, they are integrated into traditional dance forms. For the album Mudra, multi-instrumentalist and composer Prem Joshua collaborated with keyboardist Maneesh de Moor to create a series of ten pieces inspired by different mudras; as usual, the music is a rich mixture of Western and Eastern elements, combining bamboo flute and sitar with synthesizer and breakbeats of various kinds. ...See Full Description

Purists may scoff at Prem Joshua's combination of classical Indian music and funky European electronica, but that's why purists tend not to be much fun to hang around with. Prem Joshua, on the other hand, is probably lots of fun to hang around with, at least if his albums are any indication. Ahir finds him collaborating with keyboardist and bassist Chintan to create a complex but approachable, gentle yet robustly danceable set of East-West fusion compositions. Equally adept on sitar and bamboo flute, Prem Joshua takes the scale patterns of raga and sets them in a variety of dance-based rhythmic formats -- from the thumping house setting of "Namaskar" to the strutting old-school funk sound of "Ramana" to the dubwise one-drop reggae of "Sharanay" and the downtempo simmer of "The Subject Tonight Is Love." Best of all is "Mysore Monsoon," a track that juxtaposes the sweet moan of the flute with the vinegary squawk of the clavinet, while a synthesizer emits a soft boing at the end of every line and melismatic vocals twine themselves around a propulsive club beat. Like all of Prem Joshua's projects, this one offers a lovely balance between euphoria and contemplation, and puts it all to a booty-moving beat. Highly recommended. ~ Rick Anderson
