Shuddha Shabda

by Paul Tootalian

Like rain on a rooftop, like autumn wind through the cedar limbs, like the toll of temple bells in the night, Shudda Shabda echoes the energy of life. From ancient Sanskrit, Shabda translates to 'Speech Sounds' and Shuddha, from the root Shudh, 'To Purify'.

Herein, musical arrangements merge voice, piano, guitar, whistles, rattles and bells into original compositions designed to move listeners past the purely entertaining and down the rhythmic tracks of the meditative experience.

Bringing together ceremonial songs of the West with meditative mantras of the East, this melodic fusion of tradition and innovation illuminates the modern day path to self-purification.
