Originally released almost a decade ago, The Lama's Chant is a landmark recording that blends the serene, humble singing of Lama Gyurme with ambient synthesizer backdrops by Jean-Philippe Rykiel. Although creating a tasteful blending of Eastern and Western cultures is always a balancing act, THE LAMA'S CHANT is a wonderful example of how moving the results can sound when done correctly. Lama Gyurme's voice is in the medium ranges and has a melodic quality to it, which makes listening to him very hypnotic. The synthesizer work of Rykiel is very non-obtrusive, swirling in the backdrop and acting to enhance Lama Gyurme's voice rather than exist as a separate entity. Included are two discs - the first offers songs for awakening and enlightenment (the original LAMA'S CHANT CD) and the second presents a series of cuts that were performed live at concerts during the late 90's.

5 of 5 WONDERFUL June 2, 2007
Reviewer: Angel from Thousand Oaks,�Canada�United States  
Lovely, lovely, lovely.  

This CD is beautiful and moving.  The background music is very subtle and enhances the chanting, whereas in the past, I have found added music to be somewhat distracting.

This CD is beautiful at any time of the day (WONDERFUL to play first thing in the morning while you're getting ready to enter the percieved world).  Even people who are not Buddhist find the CD relaxing; plant the seeds of Dharma by playing this CD for background music wherever you can!
