Lama's Chants – Lama Gyurme

Originally released almost a decade ago, The Lama’s Chants is a landmark recording that blends the serene, humble singing of Lama Gyurme with ambient synthesizer backdrops by Jean-Philippe Rykiel. Although creating a tasteful blending of Eastern and Western cultures is always a balancing act, The Lama’s Chants is a wonderful example of how moving the results can be when done correctly. Lama Gyurme’s voice is in the medium ranges and has a melodic quality to it, which makes listening to him very hypnotic. The synthesizer work of Rykiel is very non-obtrusive, swirling in the backdrop and acting to enhance Lama Gyurme’s voice rather than exist as a separate entity. Included in The Lama’s Chants are two discs – the first offers songs for awakening and enlightenment (the original Lama’s Chant CD) and the second presents a series of cuts that were performed live at concerts during the late 90’s.-

  • The Lama’s Chants CD dramatically reflects Lama Gyurme’s deeply devoted commitment and education in spiritual life as expressed through his music.
  • Lama Gyurme has produced a very hypnotic CD in his The Lama’s Chants.
