Silence Flooded Trance Album Review Review By Grahak Cunningham. Monk Party has just released Silence Flooded Trance . Made up of father and son duo, Pragunya and Nelson Myers-Daly their influences include the kirtan devotional music scene, ancient Indian mantras, Moroccan and middle eastern music plus a wide range of world and spiritual music genres. The melodies of Sri Chinmoy, their meditation teacher, which Monk Party play, aim to uplift and inspire the audience. Sri Chinmoy once said that “music will play a most important role in bringing about world oneness.”  The music on the album is mesmerising, rhythmical, and mantric. The group uses a number of instruments darbuka, riq, frame drums, badhran, cajón, pennywhistle, nylon guitar, gongs, bansuri flute and Vocals. Pragunya has become an expert at the oud and it is heard in many of the songs. Nelson has been playing on world music instruments since he was four. “I was never pushed into to playing music but rather I learnt music like a language by always being around it and being absorbed in it,” he says. “Pragunya had a wide variety of types of music he played and listened to which has really helped colour my approach to creating art.” They have performed in North America and Australasia and collaborated with Krishna Das. Monk Party (and yes they are monks, practicing daily meditation to keep themselves in a creative flow) has emerged as one of the best outfits of their genre around, their tight nit sounds and love of music are obvious in their latest offering. Silence Flooded Trance follows on from their acclaimed debut CD Daily My Promise.   https://monkparty.bandcamp.com/album/silence-flooded-trance www.monkparty.com https://m.facebook.com/MonkParty/ more
