Siva! Siva!

 

Within its sweet and powerful interior lie musical gems from noted luminaries like Tulsidas, Shankara, and Abhinavagupta, contributing an inspiring combination of jnana and bhakti, wisdom and devotion, to an all-attracting backdrop of sacred sound.

From the devout depths of the Siva Manasa Puja to the nondual classic, Hastamalaka Stotram, this collection of ancient Sanskrit hymns is designed to place the rapt and concentrated listener into deep states of higher awareness.Musically adorned by well-arranged instrumental accompaniment utilizing cellos, flute, vocals, and backup women's chorus, this work is a fine and fitting testament to Lord Siva, the God of Wisdom, offering over sixty minutes of beautiful melody, harmony, and lyricism for the discerning devotee and audiofile.

"Babaji Bob Kindler's latest musical offering is a veritable nada malika, a garland of beautiful blossoms of sound, offered to the Lord of Yogins, Siva Mahadeva.  While paying respectful homage to the traditional format of bhajan and kirtan, Babaji offers the listener some dynamic innovations.  It's hard to imagine while listening to these pieces that the cello was not a traditional instrument in Indian performance.

"The arrangements are lush, yet with a meditative spaciousness.  The devotion is palpable.  As with previous musical offerings, I have always appreciated the way Babaji includes the English translations within the performances.  This disc includes an insert with the Sanskrit and Hindi transliterations.

"All five pieces are sonically gorgeous, but perhaps the standout is Babaji's very personal rendering of the Bhairava Stotram, an homage to Paramasiva written by the Kashmiri Mahapandita and Mahasiddha, Abhinavagupta.  To the best of my knowledge, this has never been committed to disc before.  Jaya Siva Sambhu!"

"The best of New Age music beckons. Are you experienced? In Music from the Matrix, Babaji Bob Kindler creates a series of spacious textures,over which he plays composed and improvised melodic cello lines.

"In this second album from the Matrix series, Babaji Bob Kindler again leads us through richly interior sounds, darkly gleaming like some rare, burnished wood. Here you move in states which seem adjacent to normal awareness, falling luxuriously through solidity into nothinginess, sliding down liquid cello lines, moving inside out as the sonic environment changes, dreamily. Kindler hears the cello in nonordinary ways. He evokes its most mysterious and refined character, providing a warm, fluid space for the imagination to move in." – Hearts of Space

Tiger's Paw

Enter into an incredible interplay of melody, harmony and complex rhythm as cello, flute and tabla tarong (many tuned tablas) create a marvelous blend of acoustic musical styles Featuring many of the well-loved compositions which enchanted live audiences on Jai Ma Music tours.

"You'd have to sit up and take notice at this album's opening moments, for Kindler has a knack for taking the sounds of other cultures and making them eminently accessible. He is forever nimble, intelligent, and gentle, even when rocking hard. This is another superb album by Babaji Bob Kinder, filled with joy, energy and freshness." – New Times

Babaji Bob Kindler is unique, to say the least. A cellist, he often plays jazz tinged with Eastern shadings. Tiger's Paw is a slightly offbeat collection of some mighty fascinating music, inspired by Eastern Indian rhythms and melodies. There is a wonderful cripsness in the recording, a testament to Kindler's quality engineering, and lively interplay between the flute and cello. Two tracks, Warrior Goddess, with cello so artfully replacing the sitar and some truly incredible tabla tarong work, and the title track, by themselves are well worth the price of the disk." – Online Digital Review

Ever Free Never Bound

With this sequel to Tiger's Paw, cruise through an incredible landscape of timeless original music and masterful synergy. This wonderful album reflects the breathtaking sweep of Himalayan Mountains, echoing sacred rivers flowing past ancient temples and the sights and sounds of the village marketplace. With the sublime blend of horsehair gliding over singing strings, vital breath through silver tubes and goatskin stretched over hollowed wood, the hauntingly beautiful selections on this album are sure to thrill and inspire.

"Babaji Bob Kindler is still playing the same Indian-influenced music that made his last album, Tiger's Paw, so exciting. Kindler sends long, elegiac cello lines arcing over strummed autoharps and propulsive tabla rhythms from Gregg Johnson and Daniel Paul. He's joined by Sulubika, whose flutes tease and seduce the melodies, intertwining and trading off with the cello. Kindler's Indian chamber music at times recalls the instrumental fire of John McLaughlin's Shakti, but with a stronger loyalty to mood and melody." – Billboard Magazine

"The music on that album comes from another place; a different dimension." – M.J., Hawaii
