ELEVATION
Karuna/Triloka

By STACY MEYN

Published April 19, 2006

The Sanskrit word “Karuna” references a concept wielded by Hindus and Buddhists alike in the war against suffering; it loosely translates to “compassionate action.” The term “Triloka” has been affiliated with such tools as incense, world beat music and bathrooms. The Elevation collection is yet another uplifting installment from the label, with 11 tracks culled from previous releases by the label’s “trance-chant” fixtures. Indian and Middle Eastern influences make for serpentine effects in contributions by Krishna Das, Ali Akbar Khan, Jai Uttal and M Path. Native American rumination checks in with Spirit Nation, Little Wolf and the Walela ensemble (featuring songstress Rita Coolidge, drawing on her related roots). From as far as Madagascar, international faves Tarika harmonize peacefully. If you enjoy a mellow mix of wind instruments, soothing strings and many an item emitting tinkling noises, Elevation is your answer.
