Gyuto Monks

Gyuto Monks


The powerful Gyuto monks chants on this album had never been recorded until 2001, when Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart brought The Gyuto Monks Tantric Choir to his California studio to record the incredible multiphonics of their sacred rituals. The Gyuto monks gave Hart permission to overdub their voices, achieving the huge sound of the 100-voice choir as one might hear at their mountain monastery in India or Tibet. Gyuto monks prayers for healing, compassion and peace.

Gyuto Monks : Tibetan Tantric Choir

Review: We remember when the prayer chants of the Guyoto Monks were first released in 1986. Micky Hart, one of the drummers of the Grateful Dead, was the producer and the weight of his name was enough to make us sit up and listen. Then the chanting itself captured our undivided attentions. It was the first time many of us had heard overtone singing, which is to say when a person is able to sing a primary note and the harmonic overtone at the same time. It was an illuminating experience! Please note, that the chanting on this recording is not performance, for the prayers are said anew each time the recording is played. Their power and effectiveness depends, of course, on the degree of attention and compassion which one brings to bear on the experience. The positive effects can therefore vary from merely an illuminating understanding of a vocal technique right on up to a moment of spiritual enlightenment.
