Compiled and mixed by Steve and David Gordon, Yoga Salon follows in the meditative footsteps of the duo's successful Buddha-Lounge and Café de Luna series. Contributions from the Gordons, Sophia, Karmacosmic, and others reveal rich tapestry of sound that relies heavily on ethnic instrumentation and atmospheric programming. While it may break little ground in the crowded world of new age, Yoga Salon is an effective companion to casual dinners and brief office visits, and its ethereal worldbeat rhythms, chants, and deep pulses of electronica provide the background for what promises to be a real hot time on the old yoga mat.
