MYSTIC BOWLS by Emile de Leon (Temple Sounds). This powerhouse duo's presentation of Tibetan singing bowls is no less than impressive. From the first track, "Awaken," I was seized by the players' sense of timing and knowledge of their instruments/ power.
Five years of work and many miles of travel went into this album, and the bowls they play were hand-selected from among more than 5,000.
From the deepest bass to the chimes of smaller bowls, the sounds draw listeners into a world without time, a dimension without form or limitations, a realm where all thought is possible but no thought is necessary.
This is truly amongst the best Tibetan bowl-toning I've heard. In its initial call to the spirits and communion with the divine force, the third track, "Calling Spirits," exhibits the artists' true knowledge of harmonic celebration.
