Hymns and Songs in Sanskrit by Joy
Whatever she sings, Joy Chowdhury sings from 'within': the sacred words are an outwelling of an inner poise and experience, permeating all with a sense of otherness, taking us beyond meaning into regions of primal sound and essence. In this sense this CD is a wonderful evocation of Mantra as explained by Sri Aurobindo. "Its characteristics are a language that conveys infinitely more than the mere surface sense words seem to indicate, a rhythm that means even more than the language and is born out of the Infinite and disappears into it..."
