Western musical styles and Eastern spirituality come together seamlessly on Wah’s JAI JAI JAI – an intoxicating album of chants themed after love, wisdom and praise. The serene sounds of light harmonium, pennywhistle, violin, percussion and guitar comprise the flowing backdrops on which Wah!’s call-and-response style Sanskrit mantras float airily, like whispers on the wind. “Shree Krishna,” which slowly builds in intensity as the song progresses, is a great example of joyous, uplifting chanting that has universal appeal. Another highlight is “Om Mani Padme Hum” – a beautiful song whose use of whistle, guitar and Wah!’s ethereal vocals almost make it sound Celtic. This is a great addition to Wah!’s collection of albums – a must for fans of devotional chant.
