Burnside Album Details
Paul Avgerinos, BHAKTI
Paul Avgerinos offers a joyful and uplifting feast for the ears in this east meets west and Christian meets Hindu riot of sound with Bhakti. A must have for energizing any yoga practice! Perhaps the most enchanting, uplifting and joyful Avgerinos project to date. Bhakti, (a Sanskrit word meaning love and devotion in relationship to God and all beings ) differs from previous albums in its Indian centric celebration of sound that also brings the Avgerinos voice front and center. Not since the 2005 album Phos Hilaron have we had the pleasure of his beautiful voice. This latest album combines sitar, sarod, bansuri flute and Indian violin with EWI, nylon guitar, groovy Indian beats and Christian mantras using Sanskrit kirtan words. Avgerinos combines Christian theology and language with Hindu Sanskrit devotional singing styles to create an enjoyable new sound that is accessible to a wide audience .
