CD - ANAND, the Sanskrit word for "bliss," accurately characterizes the flowing dreamscapes and spiritual power of Snatam Kaur's work. With her delicate voice, which is smooth as silk and full of innocent purity, Snatam creates a space of meditative calm, where the listener is encouraged to contemplate love, life and the divine. ANAND features her voice set against an ethereal backdrop of guitar, light rhythm, piano, tabla beat, harmonium and sarod. The serene flute harmonies of Manose are the topping on the cake, making this soundscape one of heartfelt peace and, as the name so accurately describes, bliss. Included are Snatam's renditions of the chants "Jap Man Sat Nam," "Ek Ong Kar Sat Nam" and "Mul Mantra."
