Rhythms of the Chakras
Recorded October 26-29 at Curved Air Studio in Boulder Colorado
Recorded and mixed by Les Kahn
Produced by Glen Velez
Associate Producer Les KahnEastern spiritual traditions recognize seven major chakras, or centers of energy, located in the human body. Over centuries, healers have come to identify certain colors, musical tones, esoteric attributes, and other elements that stimulate particular chakras.

Rhythms of the Chakras represent a new contribution to the field of sound healing: distict rhythms that have shown themselves effective for focusing awareness on each chakra. Each of the seven tracks on this recording is designed to stimulate and activate one of those chakras. The vocalizations on each composition use vowel sounds long identified with specific chakras. The overall effect maximizes the sound healing potential for each piece.

BORDER STATES is an album of briliant percussion work that is enlivened by the startlingly versatile Howard Levy… This is one of those releases that has to be heard to be believed… This album is full of surpirises and well worth searching out.”
—Richard Foss, Los Angeles Reader

“Glen Velez and Howard Levy take two of simplest instruments in the world and make astounding music… joined by percussionist Randy Crafton, they reverse aeons of continental drift, pulling together Tuvan chants, Latin American rhythms and Middle Eastern times…”
—Cliff
