Deep electronic beats are fused with the natural sounds of drums, acoustic guitar, erhu, cello, bansuri flutes and vocals in this music which was created as a backdrop for yoga teacher Duncan Wong’s new yoga DVD project. This world of sound will support the practices in your life be they dance, yoga, meditation, massage or grooving to the music!
Co-creators Amani Friend and Rara Avis, joined by producer Craig Kohland (founder of the Shaman’s Dream Ensemble), meld elements of downtempo and psy-chill with sinewy basslines, otherworldly guitar and an exotic mix of organic instruments into an Indo-ambient mystical fusion. Pulsing with lush rhythms and serene harmonies, DownTemple Dub: Waves is a sonic odyssey into the soul of the global heartbeat.
DownTemple Dub: Waves, along with DownTemple Dub: Flames, was originally conceived as the soundtrack to the DVD Series Duncan Wong Yogic Arts. That project allowed Desert Dwellers to push the bounds of Yoga music into a new realm of musical fusion called “Yoga Dub”: electronic devotional music blending the boundaries of rhythmic ambience while incorporating such traditional instruments as subahar, tabla, udu, erhu, cello and voice. The emphasis is always on the space between the music, allowing for a non-intrusive soundscape to support rather than distract from the listener’s activity.
