sean johnson & the wild lotus band : Product Reviews

 
Unity
LA Yoga Magazine
"Unity is a gospel-tinged soundtrack for the revival of this century. Merging mantra, frame drum, and world music melodies and rhythms, this is a must-have for your kirtan library." - LA Yoga Magazine

 
Unity
Kirtan Central
“For me, this album is as important as Krishna Das’s Pilgrim Heart or Jai Uttal’s Shiva Station, expanding and deepening the vision of modern kirtan music.” – Daniel Tucker, Kirtan Central

 
Unity
Namaste Y’all
“Imagine if Krishna Das and The Funky Meters teamed up and you might get a sound similar to Sean Johnson And The Wild Lotus Band. But why box this talented group in — they are a bold and refreshing face in kirtan-style music.” — Namaste Y’all

 
Unity
Yoga Chicago REVIEW
“The melding of the depth of mantra with rockin’ grooves soothes my American yogini soul.” – Yoga Chicago

 
Unity
Yoga Chicago - Debi Buzil
Sean Johnson and The Wild Lotus Band’s third release, Unity features red-hot jams with uplifting mantras, and messages straight out of their hometown of New Orleans. Each of the 10 tracks holds a unique space. The combination of talent, with singer/percussionist Gwendolyn Colman and bassist/guitarist Alvin Young, is synergistic. The first track, “Ganesha’s Belly Dance,” is a hypnotic invocation to remove obstacles. It wouldn’t be out of place in a film noir, filmed in a faraway place. The Sufi-esque “Nur Allah Nur” begins with Gwendolyn’s sublime voice chanting in Arabic, then Sanskrit. Sean joins her with some Hebrew, and the magic is made. “Remember” is bass heavy pop with a mix of Sanskrit and English. “The Man in Blue,” which is a play on Krishna’s blue skin, uses one of my fave instruments—the triangle! I can’t help but smile listening to this piece. There is a delicate balance of light and dark on this record—that’s how my life is too. Hearing this group bust out the songs “Unity” and “Fly Away Home” at Bhakti Fest Midwest was quite a moving experience. There are only three of them in the band! Gwendolyn, how do you play your percussion and drums, while you sing so sweetly and strong? There is so much beauty in their finely crafted music; “Unity” will penetrate your body, mind, and soul. - Debi Buzil
