REVIEWS

 

KIRTAN is meant to invoke a CHANGE of CONSCIOUSNESS. Ultimately, it isn't the music, but rather THE MANTRA.

The external world of change and anxiety, vs. the internal world of peace and bliss, begins in the TEMPLE OF THE HEART.

Try and chant along with our songs, and see for yourself. IT EXISTS as much as YOU EXIST. The question is how to actually access what is already within each of us, that sat cit ananda nature (eternity, knowledge, and bliss). Chant and be happy!

“As soon as I heard even the beginning notes on this CD Lotus Eyes
 by Red Rock Rishis, I was fascinated!
“The transcendental mantras along with the soothing melodies is a joy to listen to.
All the tracks are musically satisfying. ‘Relax, Don’t Stress, chant the divine names’, the first line in the first song, says it all. This is a very peaceful album, perfect for yoga and relaxation of the soul. An aural bath that cleanses the stresses of the day.”

Lotus Eyes creates a vibrant, peaceful, and happy ambience. The music is wonderfully varied and there’s a feeling of being both ancient and timeless as well as contemporary and hip. Highly recommended!”

Marti Walker: musician, composer, kirtan singer

 

Lotus Eyes by Red Rock Rishis is a sincere journey to the heart of Lord Krishna. A mixture of ancient melodies (such as in Holy Places and Govindam) and modern sounds and beats (like the unexpected groovy, down-tempo trance beat in Relax, Don’t Stress /AUM), the listener is transported out of time, and dropped lovingly into the arms of Lotus Eyes himself - Lord Jagannath.
At times uplifting, at times intoxicating, this CD is a testimony to the undeniable  and infectious devotion of the Red Rock Rishis.”

Pete Fine: sitarist / composer /lead guitarist for "Whole Lot Of Zep"

“The Red Rock Rishis CD The Beginning Is Near, is both a meditative, uplifting spiritual experience and a wonderful musical journey. The Hare Krishna chant has rarely had so many variations of musical settings! Beautiful sounds abound, as well as pulsing rhythms. Creative synths, percussion, traditional Indian instruments and outstanding vocals give this CD a feeling of true bliss and wonder. Even those unfamiliar with the Hare Krishna chant will find themselves singing along and humming the tunes. The Red Rock Rishis CD is a unique combination of "ear candy" and "mind candy", with a wrapping of love throughout.

“Just to let you know, I've been listening to your CD Lotus Eyes ever since I got it. This is a real contribution to the Krishna sankirtan variety of music. I love the changing moods, all to the holy names. It has become a permanent selection in my CD player, and I listen to it often. Its meditative effects are great for background music when I'm busy writing. So thanks for your efforts to you and your band for putting this together.”

TESTIMONIALS

"This CD is simply divine! Lotus Eyes by Red Rock Rishis is beautiful, and with enough variation from track to track to remain a compelling musical journey. These spiritual rhythms do an excellent job of redirecting an anxious, racing mind and help refocus mental energies in the most spiritual and energetic way. The vocals are from the soul,real and honest, and somehow perfect - with true emotion and depth."
