Tibetan Singing Bowls accompanied by Harmonic Overtone Singing.
Serene, harmonic, mystical... these are just a few words to describe the experience of listening to Shaman Bowls from Temple Sounds. Produced and performed be Emile de Leon and Joe Texiera, the album features an atmosphere that's almost otherworldly in it's meditative bliss. From subtle vibrations to the more abrupt chime of the bowls being lightly struck, a plethora of tones are produced, each bringing the listener closer to inner balance. The album is one hour in length, making it idea for meditation, healing practices or Reiki. Tibetan bowls and overtone chanting comprise the first eight tracks, the final track also incorporates light tabla beats to gently signal the end of the session.
