Svantai is a derivative from an ancient Sanskrit word Svantai which means sound. World Music is a whole new genre of music born with coming together of influences and cultures from across the globe. This Music album is inspired and greatly influenced by music from the African grasslands, the snowy Himalayan ranges, and the pristine blue seas of Malaysia.
The cover depicts a sea-shell, from, from which emanates the sounds of the origin of the Universe according to Hindu Mythology. Sound Trek is the first in the series. The music has enveloped within itself the musical journeys of the musician and his imagination across the world and his interpretation of it. Sound Trek has eight tracks composed by Bhavesh Bhat and takes the listener on an unforgettable journey of discovery.
The CDs features following tracks:
01 SAVANNAH - The African grasslands, a savage world. A Cradle of civilization. A testimony of man's greed and destruction. A symbol of man's desire to undo the harm done to Mother Nature.
02 NIGHT BIARDS OF TAWANG - Inspired by the bats, owls and the monks of the Tawang Monastery who silently roam the night seeking nirvana.
03 THE LONELY STREETS OF CAIRO - The bustling streets of ancient Cairo with its bazaars, bedouins & tourists can be a lonely place. For often in a crowd we realise that, we walk side by side but not together.
04 HILLARY'S STEP - Like the pioneer Edmund Hillary who conquered Mt Everest along with Tenzing Norgay. This track captures the feeling of triumph and humility at the same time.
05 ATACAMA STRINGS - In the dreary, desert sand of the Atacama Desert where nothing grows, nor water or oil found, except the fount of hope that springs forth from the hart of a weary traveller who has seen beauty in it all.
06 PENANG BLUES - Simply inspired by the pristine blue sea, Nothing else.
07 THE GRAND TRUNK ROAD - The discovery of India is never complete without a trip down her roads. Here you journey into the soul of a spiritual county cloaked in choas.
08 TEARS OF THE YANGTZE - A river wild. Born of bloodshed it continues to take lives. A river that inspires awe and makes men bow their heads in reverence.
