The Indian musical influence of the sarod and tabla is unmistakable in Shekhina, Hebrew Goddess by Desert Wind. The underlying theme of this deeply spiritual work, masterminded by Allan Scott Bachman, is the need to restore a balance to our spiritual lives. It is music with soul-searching meaning for an active meditative state of mind. For the pure music lovers, there is exotic music galore: rich and spicy Indian melodies with an Oriental matrix overlaid with Western rhythms on guitar and synthesizer. Religious and world music aficionados will recognize and enjoy the sound of the shofar or ram's horn in "Goddess of Peace."
