Brought to you from Heaven on Earth Music, creator of the celestial and popular albums: “108 Sacred Names of Mother Divine”, “Sacred Chants of Shiva” and “Sacred Chants of Buddha”. This is an album of vast expanse, deep relaxation, yogic presence and total immersion. Using the 56 string MONOCHORD, a large wooden stringed instrument designed for sound healing (you lie on it!), the harmonics and overtones of this remarkable instrument have a profound effect on the nervous system, the body and the emotions.

Craig Pruess, creator of the Sacred Chants series, and Ilyana Vilensky, sound healer from Somerset, England, have worked over a year to capture these amazing sounds. Augmented on one track by Craig's soft, soothing and lyrical sitar playing, along with tambura, bells and swaramandala, and graced by Ilyana's solo shamanic singing style, the whole CD creates a sound bath - wave after wave washes over the listener. Native American Indian flute calls out on the second track, and the third track Ocean Prayer is a beautiful raga combining sitar, tambura, monochord, swaramandala along with Ilyana's intoning and Craig's deep Om chant.

Craig's baby daughter, Eleena, was born to this music on March 9th, 2008, and the peace and joy completely permeated the room. Truly music for the celestial spheres.
