Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu



Liner Notes: 

This is a long one, and repetitive on purpose - the title is a Sanskrit mantra, and the melody line that comes in at about 47 seconds is where the mantra would be chanted. Mantra translates to "May all beings everywhere be happy and free." I've set it to different music a few times before.
All sounds from my 20-year-old Technics keyboard - I'm playing everything except the percussion. I'm thinking of doing more of this kind of electronic music to be played as a soundtrack for the yoga classes I teach.
If you listen to the first couple of minutes, you'll get the idea. Or you can listen to the whole thing and practice some yoga while doing so.
I recorded an album's worth of yoga instrumentals - an acoustic/electronic mix - in 50/90 2015 and FAWM 2016. Maybe it's time to start another one.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I really liked how it had a groove but was still relaxing. Though I do not practice yoga, i can imagine this either being used for a suspense movie in the 80's or a game soundtrack. One of my favorite parts was the octave change for the melody at about 2:20, really changed the feel and increased the energy of the song.

Has a such a wonderful positive meditative quality about it. Transports and transforms - perfect for yoga!
