Recensione album

If, after 20 years and about a million sales, you still haven't heard of sacred chant and vocal producer, vocalist, author and lecturer Robert Gass, allow none other than spiritual guru Deepak Chopra to make the recommendation: "The word enchantment suggests becoming one with God through chanting.
