The ebb and flow of the tides—the universal pulse—moves within each of us as the primordial ocean that makes up 75 percent of our bodies. Jala (or "water") features artists from the soundtrack of Shiva Rea’s new DVD Fluid Power. Chosen specifically to get listeners into a state of flow with the body’s cycles of living energy, Jala showcases the talents of premier artists including:
• French-Caribbean vocalist/percussionist Joel Virgel, whose music has been described as "a potpourri of breathy, silky tunes, sexy and sensual"
• Shaman’s Dream—featuring Craig Kohland and Rara Avis, the unique sound of this world-groove troupe has found its way into compositions for theater, dance, yoga, and the healing arts
• KDZ—the seven-member ensemble known for their fusion of Afro-Caribbean drumming and yoga-attuned sensibilities The universe is in a state of flux and flow, and yoga, teaches Shiva Rea, is about finding that pulse and moving with it. Now listeners will enjoy an ethereal immersion into that ever-changing rhythm—carried on the waves of Jala.
