Sure to challenge the sounds of progressive world music, former member of alt-rock group Dramarama Anant Jesse plunges listeners into an ocean of global mysticism with MANTRICA. Using ancient Sanskrit mantras from the vedic tradition yet saturated in pop flavor, Jesse’s spiritual opus walks a thin line between devotional music and contemporary grooves. Mixmaster David Kingsley keeps the rhythms strong as Jesse uses santoor, bamboo flutes, cello, guitar, tamboura, sarangi and keyboards alongside his chanting for a dramatic release that brings the listener to a state of ecstasy.
