A hypnotic combination of meditative new age and South Indian Carnatic traditions from Mumbai-raised singer Bombay S Jayashri, pressed to reverse cut vinyl (plays from inner to outer grooves) by the brilliant Time Capsule label.
"Shravanam", which translates as “astonishing visual and aural effects,” features three stunning tracks, with a further two available via digital download. Stripped back opener ‘Sada Bala (Slokam)’ showcases Jayashri’s vocals, while ‘Bhajeham Bhajeham’ is accompanied by mridangam drums, bells and a tambura. On the B-side ‘Kalimaheshwari’ sees Javrashi performing Sanskrit chants that evoke a variety of different names for the sacred feminine. Includes sublime artwork by Petra Péterffy with liner notes by culture and political theory professor Jeremy Gilbert.
