Al Gromer Khan "Day Of The Beloved" CDr
The newest album by virtuoso sitar performer Al Gromer Khan is out since the middle of December 2015 on his Rasa Music label packaged in a 4-panel digipak and available in limited edition of 50 numbered copies. Front cover of "Day Of The Beloved" is based on the painting entitled "Devaki, Mother of Krishna" by Austrian artist Marianne Stokes, who settled in England and was considered one of the leading women artists in Victorian England.
After thrillingly scented and flamboyantly instrumented "Far Go" and "Lalita" albums, released in 2013 and 2015, with this newest long-form piece Al Gromer Khan dives deeply into minimal ambient trance meditations in the tradition of his 2006, peacefully immersing and ambrosially enrapturing collaboration "The Alchemy Of Happiness" with kindred spirit Klaus Wiese. Monochromatic drone blankets are soothingly floating and perpetually guarding above, while gently nuanced traceries tranquilly emerge and glimpse on distant horizons. Some nearly palpable, swirling across the ears, some fairly intangible, almost clandestine, painting mindscaping eonian helixes, but the fore is quickly exhibited by transient, ear-tickling textures of pellucidly filigree sitar. Elusive, heavily flatlined and sublimely mesmerizing quietudes are delicately amalgamated with surreptitiously permeating ethereal-like subtleties and intermittently reinforced by orientally fragranced curclicue insignias of Al Gromer Khan's stringed wizardry. At multifold passages more steady, insistent, amorphously expansive and monochromously infinite, then awaking and shifting from remotely shimmering calls through vaguely clinking and rattling fragments to glistening vistas of piquantly textural sitar magnifications, yet always exceptionally minimalistic. This timelessly contemplative splendor is strongly recommended to experience at a low volume, a majestically rewarding journey displaying an immense dose of sophisticated sensitivity awaits here!!!
58 minutes long "Day Of The Beloved" is a must-have album for all connoisseurs of ultra profound meditative minimal soundsculpting. Turn your volume knob down and let the album freely reveal all its nectarous magic on you, it obviously gets my highest recommendation!!! And while remaining in creative realms, according to the latest updates, the Maestro is now working on his next, fourth novel, so stay tuned for more!!!
