Good times..

RP plays 2 songs by this group, and I find both very intriguing and quite good. Quick search shows that the band broke up a long time ago, their website is gone, and music is probably out of print.  Found a few songs on Bandcamp, but not this album.

I never made it to Kathmandu.  The work visa for Australia expired while I did another year plus in South America before catching a ride on a Greek freighter to Africa.

In defence of the western wannabe hippies sporting local style clothes, I believe that they did this because it was exciting and new and because it visibly represented solidarity with the local ordinary folks.

Incidentally, I never dressed like that because a) I did not want to stimulate undo interest in me by police and border guards, and b) at 6'5" with blue eyes and hair that would bleach blond in the sun, there was no way that I would ever blend in.  

The important thing to do in much of South America in those days was to avoid wearing long hair and a beard.  No point in being mistaken for a Marxist guerrilla and getting shot for your troubles.  

Besides there is probably a little of animist left in me.  :-)   Later on as a secular fellow-travelling companion of the Roman Catholic Church, there was thankfully no dress code.  I did not look much different from radical socially engaged Franciscan and Jesuit priests.  
Really cool! I'm digging this! RP keeps pulling me back in here every time I'm about to go out for a post-pasta stroll up into the foothills!

Released in 2001. A short-lived Trance-Trip-Hop era. My favorite was probably Loop Guru.

So. Just to get this straight. It is not possible to be from the west and be 'spiritual'? Really? 

 
Just to get this straight: that's not what he said.
Tribal-Trance-Dance music.

I like it.  
Spirituality these days in the west is more like a lifestyle instead of following a believe.
I must say it doesn't attract me. Oversized Buddha statues in the white living room, smelly candles and new age music on the background while pondering about the effect of veganism, yoga and green tea on children... No, not my cup of tea.

well actually, no. That is the cultural, nay evolutionary point. Homo Novus is not afraid of the dark.

A mixed bag of comments on this one. I like it. It sure beats drunken shit kickin'. And it's not even weird. I think I'll up my rating.

Attention, Gary McKinnon: in your hacking of U.S. computers for alien information, you overlooked RP systems.

Reality is over-rated! What's wrong with an alien playing with a cat's cradle?


I tried to find this song on iTunes and it wasn't listed on the "Lost at Last" album. Any ideas?

I'm actually into what her voice does, trailing off like that. I imagine if I was of another state of mind I'd be tempted to jump into my speakers and follow. The words? She's saying something? I'll have to listen better...
Great Stuff.... Keep it up!

It's like they threw a bunch of stuff in a hat and mixed the parts that were randomly picked.
Belly Dancing music! :dancingbanana:
This was pretty good as an instrumental, but was spoilt a little by the vocals - voice is ok, but the lyrics grate a bit. Still worth an 8, though.

It could definately work as a bellydance peice, with the right choreography and all. I think it would be not only fun but beautiful. I like this peice.

Programmers are human too. I actually like this, very pleasant and atmospheric.

heheh. curiously enough, I think this is mostly people playing instruments--the group is 5-8 people. they're a lot of fun live; I'm mixed on how well they translate to recordings. this is also an earlier album, I think, and I'm not sure there are recordings available of their more mature stuff.
Macinery or Human, I don't care. Very pleasant sounds. :clap: It ain't worth a 10, but a firm 8 (though I'm also tempted to give it a 10 to neutrilize the 1's) < if only I could vote -10 a few hundred times to every U2 ether distortion .... >

The instrument in this song you all are talking about is a sarod, not a sitar. Information on this band can be found at https://www.lostatlast.com Their live shows are not to be missed. Next show is at Club Fab in Gurnville (northern California) at a Day of the Dead show on Saturday November 1st. By the way, their CD has some much cooler songs than the four played by Radio Paradise.
sounds like something walmat would have produced :lol: :bounce:

This must have been spectacular. Never been to Burning Man but the view online suggests that it's certainly my kind of place.Will have to search Lost at Last.Would like to know where they're coming from philosophically.The lyric here refers to attaining a state of transcendant wisdom, but whether it's tantric buddhist, hindu, kabbalah ,or a generic appropriation of the themes, I'm not exactly sure. In any case, this rocks. Love the vocals, including the traditional skat tin-tal chorus in the background. :notworthy: :bounce: :notworthy: :bounce: :notworthy:

I like it. Always love anything with a sitar sound. When I was a wee child I totally freaked when I first heard \"Norwegian Wood.\" :eek:
NOISE! :evil:
I don\'t like the voices, the overly-digitized sound or the ambiguous lyrics.
I perked up to this the first time because the words spoke to the mood I was in - but this time it sounds hokey and grating.
this one gets tedious. heard sooo much similar stuff in the 90s
This one gets entirely too much airplay. There\'s lots of stuff that could and should be played, but isn\'t. :frustrated:
grr! This is so monotonous... I feel like screaming. completely boring when all the elements are there for a good song.
I have to admit that I am very happy that I bought their CD. It is all very cool.
Sitar sounds like it was sampled from elsewhere. Ok tune.

Yes, a sitar and a bit of harp and a triangle too. The sitar playing sounds somewhat like a rehersal, without really connecting to the song.

Sounds very much like Delerium to me. Pretty good, though.
I'm not a big dance/trance music fan, but I had to check out this CD after the couple of tracks I heard on RP. I really dig this album. I love the mix of Native American, Middle Eastern and techno music. Plus, the lady's got an awesome voice. It's a great CD to play while at work.
