Biography

The Brooklyn Raga Association album can be seen as a musical magickal spell that energetically aligns any computer or stereo it is being played through, as well as affecting the elements of the room in which the music is heard. The album is intended to be used for practical uses such as cooking, yoga, meditation, and astral projection.
The Free Album is offered by their Bandcamp site http://brooklynragaassociation.bandcamp.com/album/brooklyn-raga-association

In 2009, the band went into Cold Cuts Studios with Florent Barbier, who has recently done work with Ivan Julian (Richard Hell & The Voidoids) and The Fleshtones. Guest percussionists Leaf Chang of Demons and Adam Kriney of La Otracina helped conjure elements on a few of the core album tracks.
Together, In addition to recording live, the band used a prototype software called Nyasa designed to synthesize the tones produced by sympathetic strings as are typically found on classical Indian stringed instruments. Born of the wisdom of The Music Inn’s Jeffery Slatnick (former roadie of Ravi Shankar), The Nyasa software opened up a lot of textural landscapes for the Raga Association, taking it’s drone sound into the shimmering realms beyond. Raga is Sanskrit for “color” or “mood”. This highly listenable album is purely rooted in that traditional northern indian style. The studio recordings capture a deeper psychotropic push into the abyss, taking it to the intergalactic limits of echoed delay, melodic feedback mind-warp, swirling percussive waves, and sitar over-load reflecting a tapestry of otherworldly acidic bliss.
