From All Music Guide: Yoga may have been born in India and developed over the past 5,000 years, as Sean Johnson's liner notes to this album attest, but it is best known in the West as a variant of exercise taught and practiced by suburbanites who have never bathed in the Ganges. Putumayo World Music, a label that exists to address the taste for light exotica among such music listeners, has created an appropriate soundtrack to yoga exercise on this various-artists compilation, containing many performers who, like Johnson, are actually Westerners with Eastern training. Based in New Orleans, Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band (which consists of Alvin Young and Gwendolyn Colman) present a typical selection in the second track, "Om Hari Om/Sharanam Ganesha (Refuge)," which finds Johnson singing in a voice that might be James Taylor or John Denver, if he weren't singing in Hindi.

Product Description
To be released on September 14th, Yoga is Putumayo's first CD release featuring songs selected to accompany yoga practice and serve as a relaxing soundtrack for daily life. Rooted in ancient Hindu, Buddhist and Jain traditions, the practice of yoga has evolved over the past 5,000 years. Adopted by millions of people around the world, yoga provides a vehicle for greater health and spiritual awareness. Music has long had a close relationship with yoga, particularly in the Bhakti tradition, which incorporates musical chants into its practice. Yoga features renowned musicians from around the world. British-born, South Indian artist Susheela Raman duets with Kenyan singer Ayub Ogada on the harmonious "O Rama." Krishna Das, who is the best-known US performer of traditional Indian kirtan-style music, demonstrates call-and-response chanting on "Hanuman Baba (Dub Farm Remix)." Costa Rican group Amounsulu create a serene atmosphere by blending sitars and glass bottles on the song "El Bosque Eterno de los Niños (Children's Eternal Rainforest)." On "Bolo Ram" celebrated western devotional musician Wah! sings a tranquil verse that is believed to bring bliss to all who chant it. Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band are known for their beautiful, melodic chanting as displayed on "Om Hari Om/Sharanam Ganesha (Refuge)." Yoga also features the collaborative world fusion group The Lucknow Project, US kirtan artist Gaura Vani And As Kindred Spirits, renowned producer/musician Ben Leinbach and percussionist Geoffrey Gordon, bhajan and kirtan singer Karnamrita Dasi and British producer Niraj Chag. Rounding out this eclectic collection are Swedish musician and teacher Yogini, Senegalese singer Ablaye Cissoko with German trumpeter Volker Goetze, husband and wife duo Shantala and Bhutanese monk Lama Gyurme with French pianist Jean-Philippe Rykiel.
