OUT NOW - Limited Edition CD of 100 - Available here: https://samanarecords.bandcamp.com/album/sanhata-dark-side-of-bright-cd-album
-----

Sanhata - Dark Side of Bright

The Album is Surround Sound Friendly.

Dark Side of Bright by Sanhata is an Album with a unique and distinctive blend of psychedelic music, for anytime of the day or night, with a fusion of genres. It is produced with an on-the-fly Live Improvisation approach to sound design.

Sanhata plays the Theremin in majority of the tracks within this album along with other musical instruments, synthesizers and a Midi Keyboard for Improvisation of certain Musical Instruments but played on keys.

Major Influences can be heard from genres such as Avant-garde, Ambient, Dark Ambient, Industrial, Psychedelic Progressive Rock, Retro Synth Pop, Orchestral, Psychedelic Ambient, Experimental Electronica, Cinematic Soundscapes and Ethnic Fusion.

The Album was produced at one go with each track written specifically for this release. There was also a Sound to Visual and Art experiment conducted where digital art was created for each track based on the feelings generated by them. All these were then combined and super imposed to create the artwork for the CD Top Design. Individual pieces of art created can be found on facebook through the personal profile of Swaroop Guhathakurta AKA Sanhata.

Thank you Josh East for featuring this track with a question and answer session for - ASANA International Yoga Journal (California).
😊❤

The Article will also include a link to free download of the track named - Surya Namaskar.

The Writeup by Josh East : Writing music in a true organic structure for Sanathana relates to his personal way of meditation; in a free form with limited discard to originality. Mumbai, India born Swaroop Guhathakurta who goes by Sanathana, writes and records live; leaving his creative and imaginative spirit as is, with or without off beats or signatures, as he believes it's part of being human. While in the process of writing tracks, meditation comes in to play naturally for Sanathana, as he explains, "The mind is totally mindful in the action of doing but mindless in terms of wandering, as is the essence of doing any form of yoga or asana for example, to eventually be timeless."

The free download offer below, titled “Surya Namaskar” is a perfect example of this timeless rendition. This track allows asana yoga practitioners to move freely with an intense energy of electronic beats, synth overlays and sitar, while bringing balance with a piano serenade, backed by some smooth brass. Meditative wise, the track builds back up again just after a brief intermission of psychedelic centeredness, and finally guiding one out of a pose.

Expressing himself through art and music, Sanathana communicates by portraying all forms of emotions through his work. It’s safe to say this form of expression has been revealed in an artistic yet meditative motion.

Q1: When listening to music for the first time while practicing any traditional style of yoga, do you tend to naturally move in and out of a pose, essentially allowing the music to guide you through the practice?
Answer : If it's listening to music for the first time then yes! It's just like going with the flow using ears to listen whilst allowing the body to flow with music only as an audible guide!

Q2: As a graphic artist, you create your own artwork for the majority of your music projects. What drives or guides you to sync artwork with the overall music project in order to illustrate this combined message for the listener?
Answer : Both music and art is not planned. I usually just go with the flow wherever it goes and a theme develops in the process. However, if an artwork is being worked on to fit an album or a compilation then based on the elements of the theme, I work on linking them together. Sometimes I keep the album, compilation or a set of tracks playing in the background whilst working on art.

I will post updates on this article when it's published 😊❤

Sanhata project now moves into the realm of freestyle, free flowing psychedelia with a hint of psychedelic jazz. The album has been produced with an intent to enhance the healing frequencies emphasizing on the 432Hz Universal Healing Frequency. You may choose to actively meditate or relax whilst listening to the album, may it be night or day!!! 

Om Namo Narayana!!! – Narayana stands for the alpha and omega of the universe: The Vedic seers gained this four-lettered sound in their penances, found its significance and its meaning. They initiated the seekers into this mantra from ancient most times to enable self-realization and at-one-ment with Narayana (The Supreme Being). 

This release is dedicated to the footprint left behind….Divine Blueprint.

Tracklist: 
01. SANHATA – Spiral Music Generation [147 BPM] 
02. SANHATA – Liberian Sunset [Tribal Drum and Psychedelia] 
03. SANHATA – The Universe Entered My Mind [150 BPM] 
04. SANHATA – Prismatic Polychromatic [170 BPM] 
05. SANHATA – 432 Meets Leonardo Pisano [169 BPM]
