Album Review

In an attempt to take an artistic step forward, Wah! has decided to fancy up traditional East Indian kirtans by adding Western rhythms and instrumentation. She even includes a "Dub Version" of "Govinda Gopala" as the closing track. Unfortunately, the simplicity heard on her previous release, Meditation Series: Chanting, was the alluring part, so what she has achieved on CD Krishna is less than remarkable, comparatively speaking.

It's also nice to have an entire collection of chants dedicated to one deity, rather than trying to cover them all (and there are many).
