Music Review: Shambhala (Various artists; New Earth Records)

I have some mixed feelings about this disc.  While I really like the music, I’m not completely sure what the tracks have to do with the legendary Buddhist kingdom, so on one level, it feels a bit like one more company co-opting yet another Buddhist term (Zen, karma, Nirvana… when will it stop?).  Perhaps a better title would be “Music inspired by Shambhala” or something like that. At any rate, the music itself is first rate.  Nicely relaxing and soothing, the cd is great to listen to on the way to work or after a long day… or anytime, really. From New Earth Records.  (Tell ’em you saw it on Elephant Journal!)
