While words have their intellectual appeal, instrumental music can sometimes create an openness that language cannot. Among the many instrumental pieces Sounds of Isha has created to manifest different ambiences (or at least attempted to manifest :D), Madhyamavathi is one of the more beautiful ones. The name reflects the raga on which the song is based.
The song was the product of one jamming session. The flute piece came first and as we worked with it to create a song, we had the fortune of roping in a few more contributors from amongst our volunteers. The result is what you hear.
We had no particular plan as to what ambience to manifest through this song. However, from our experience, we find that it can be soulful, meditative or relaxing – soothing and settling.
Let us know how you experience it!
