kirtan: turiya sings
Yamuna Tira Vihari
"Krishna Krishna" Ambient new age joint and a deeper journey on this... Alice Coltrane is the undeniable godmother of spiritual jazz this 1982 cassette release sees her at peak spirituality and is presented on 2LP for the first time. A collection of devotional songs including vocals, organ, strings, and synthesizers available only at Alice’s Sai Anantam Ashram. Kirtan: Turiya Sings features a sparser arrangement of organ and chanting, produced by Ravi Coltrane.This is intentional, devotional music created with the purpose of connecting to a higher power. The pared back arrangements on this new release are enchantingly haunting and encourage the listener to reach a meditative headspace so as to channel connectiveness to a greater spirit. “Turiya” is short for Alice’s full Sanskrit name Turiyasangitananda. “Kirtan” means “narrating, reciting, telling, describing, of an idea of story”.
