      Far less of a kraut-vibe, I'd say. I like the title track off
      "Dharana" but the rest of the album veers too close to "new age"-style
      world-fusion for my taste. I assume "Contemplation" continues this trend?

      Are we talking "Voice of the Silence" here, with the "overtone"
      singing? I like that better than the second half of "Dharana"...
