1) All That Exists
(Mahalakshmi)
Mahalakshmi composed this as a mellow lullaby. When I heard it, immediately I knew I would want to record it as a more upbeat and jazzy piece. So, here it is!

Originally the title of this song was Goa Chill, then Mahalakshmi told me it's too groovy to chill out with. So, now it's called Goa Groove! Composed and created in Goa with a bass and drum tracks added by our friends in Poland.

4) Dance of the Hermit - Vocal Mix
(Emam)
About eight years ago, we went into the studio with Michał Rudaś, in Warsaw (Poland), and recorded his voice on a couple of my songs. Then I forgot about the tracks and didn't do anything with them until now!
A completely different version of this song was released on the album Sacred Insanity. In this version we feature the great vocals of Michał.

5) Outside Of Time
(Mahalakshmi)
Note from Mahalakshmi (song's composer):
This piece arrived in my ear in a moment "Outside of Time" after having come to India for the first time. I lived in a western culture my entire life and the experience of India shook my mental constructs apart. I found myself in an unfamiliar land that was also somehow distantly familiar, jostling unknown memories that seemed to arise from a thick haze beyond time. I was suddenly out of space, out of mind and thrust into an experience I could not have predicted... India embracing me as the churning ocean itself.

Lyrics for "Together" by Emam:
In your eyes I see all the light you're beaming.
In your heart I feel all the love you're giving.
It's so lovely we're together, I will cherish this forever.
I'm so happy we're together, you can count on me forever.
In your eyes I see all your lovely faces.
In your heart I feel vast and open spaces.
It's so lovely we're together, I will cherish this forever.
I'm so happy we're together, you can count on me forever.
In your eyes I see the sunshine, in your heart I feel the moon.
I will cherish this forever, I will love you to the moon.
I will love you to the moon. I will love you to the moon!

A fusionary approach to an original light classical Indian song in raag Jhinjhoti.
