Rasa Mandala is an exciting collaboration between the prodigious talents of leading Australian kirtan artist Carmella Baynie and Dale Nougher- one of the first exponents of electronic ambient music and soundscape in Australia. This is groundbreaking music that weaves a rich tapestry of dreamy electronic soundscapes and world grooves with ancient Mantra. The result is a fresh exciting new sound created with unsurpassed ease and vision.
Rasa Mandala is laced with inspirational, uplifting and anthemic chants, with internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Carmella’s enchanting vocals and melody, and with Dale Nougher’s surreal orchestration. Together they have combined with the exceptional mastery of Grammy-nominated Producer Kamal Engels.
