LISTEN & PURCHASE
Named after Hanuman, a brave monkey warrior devotee featured in the South Asian mystical history tale of the Ramayana, The Hanumen transport us to a world of unforgettable music, mystic poetry, world-rhythm, poignant stories, humor, and
Mantra Music — a journey to the deepest part of the soul. The
Hanumen create a soulful and ecstatic celebration of Naada Yoga (sacred sound and vibration) and Bhakti Yoga (love and devotion in a humble mood of service) with an array of unique instruments from around the globe.
Highly trained in the sacred music of India and Africa, yet rooted in Americana and Western music, the Hanumen perform an original mix of improvisational sounds, song, and story with call-and- response chant in English and Sanskrit. These vibrations awaken the senses to their original spiritual nature — and fill the audience with feelings of eternity, wisdom and joy.
This CD was recorded live in Portland, Oregon. Four of us sat in the room and played these songs until they felt right. Most of what you hear is exactly how it went down. This process allowed us to capture the live energy that is so vital to the “Hanumen Experience.”
