Vocalist Suvarna mines the riches of Indian mantras and ragas, blending them in a cauldron of blissful tabla rhythms and electronic wizardry. Unlike many world dance recordings that force samples of vocals onto a predictable groove, here the live percussionists and keyboard artists interact intensely with the emotional dynamics of Suvarna's astounding vocals. On the title track, her voice soars in the heady ecstatic tradition over a funky bass rhythm; later in the piece, her melodic acrobatics are matched by her passionate playing on the electric violin. With its languorous pace, "Om Mani Padme Hum" is more sensual. The male/female vocals seem to call across a canyon like lost lovers, and Suvarna's voice is echoed by the cries of the violin. "Emancipation" bristles with cymbals and electric static, and on "Flame of Life," Suvarna plays the disco diva over her own backing vocals. Keyboard artist Ravi shares composing credits on this unique album, but other musicians -- Gregg McKenzie, Anant Jesse, Dik Darnell, and Pau Inder -- join on keyboards and programming. The enchanting buildup of Ravi's guitar and kora patterns on "Rising Free" is especially liberating. Suvarna occasionally breaks the spell by speaking words of wisdom from Osho (Rashneesh), and these moments are distracting -- small blips in an otherwise moving, groovy, spacey, and truly spiritual album.
