Sensuality, spirituality and club culture all collide on the third edition of the popular “Buddha-Lounge” series from the Sequoia sub-label Sequoia Groove. Like the previous two albums, number three promises ample atmosphere for the “chill-out” experience, featuring a non-stop mix of sublime cuts from some of the worldbeat genre’s most innovative artists. Tya opens the album on a euphoric note with the smooth beats and haunting chants of his song “Akwaba.” What follows are songs like the leisurely paced, Asian themed “A Mystic Day in Mandalay” from Gingko Garden, the ecstatic Middle Eastern grooves of Nasser Kilada and plenty more examples of sonic bliss from the likes of Jaya Lakshmi, David & Steve Gordon, Tau, Opera to Relax and many more.
