ABoneCroneDrone is the third album of a trilogy produced by Real World, the two others being The Zen Kiss and Weaving My Ancestors Voices. In this third album, Sheila Chandra experiments at length with drones, harmonics, simple melodic lines, tone colors and more. She indicates that she wants the listeners to participate through their listening experience. This very unusual spiritual vocal drone music is so mesmerizing and spellbinding that one is unable to remain the distant observer/listener that we usually are; we are an unavoidably involved one for which one's experience is as important as the music. She reaches her goal.
