Buddha-Lounge is a fun, playful, and eclectic collection of moderate to up-tempo songs reflecting many different cultures and languages. It is a combination of musical styles including New Age, World Pop, Club Dance, Jazz, and even monks singing Gregorian Chants accompanied by percussion. All of these songs are well done and worth a listen. My personal favorite is track seven, titled "In The Move" by Svensson. It is a kind of mellow, jazzy dance club number with 80s synthesizer bass rhythms and clarinet and oboe leads that carries the listener from soulful to joyful with a very sweet melody. Buddha-Lounge would be great music to start your morning with, up-tempo enough to help you get going but mellow enough to be non-intrusive.

Backroads Music
This superb collection of tracks, mostly from Europe, really plays well. It is surprising that it comes from the Sequoia Label, and includes tracks by label artists Zingaia, Dave & Steve Gordon and Gary Stadler with Stephannie. Additionally, there are choice cuts from Peter Mergener, Roedelius, Alquimia, Drum N Space, Althea W., Opera to Relax and more. Punchy ambient rhythms and dream worlds of textured beats make for a winning blend of healing grooves to hang with.

New Witch Magazine
Buddha-Lounge, a best selling record in Europe, uses multi-cultural rhythms to create an intriguing album from various international new-age artists. At the beginning it was difficult to tell one song from the other because the rhythms appeared to be the same. Towards the middle of the album it really picked up, and I found that the best songs on were found here. "Dona crei tun" is a very calming melody, sung ever so softly and purely, perfect for meditation work as well as soothing relaxation. Stephannie is the voice behind this moving song. This was by far my personal favorite of all the songs featured. "Divine Flame" included brilliant drumming to entice the listener into getting onto the floor and perform a stomping dance. Performed by Alquimia, "Night of the Alebrijes" was outstanding with its subtle tones and perfectly in-sync vocals to create an enchanting, healing experience. I also enjoyed the track "Glass from Jasper," which I found useful for inducing trance. Overall this record was enjoyable. The good tracks definitely outweighed the average ones; it's worth a listen. A portion of all proceeds go to the Rainforest Action Network and the United Nations Indigenous Peoples Fund.

NAPRA ReView
This artfully arranged sequence of slow trance and multicultural beats creates a special atmosphere that claims its "Buddha" appellation by virtue of creating a "magical universe" that transcends ordinary time and space. Featured artists include Roedelius, Gary Stadler and Stephannie, Zingaia, Alquimia, and Peter Mergener There are striking contrasts -the melodic Old World folk sound of "Dona Crei Tun" followed by the Down Under world sound of "Abo Daylight," for example -but an underlying continuity of beat holds it all together. The DJs of this virtual lounge eschew the raucous rhythms and machine-noise type of techno beat which characterize some lounge music; their atmosphere is more in favor of relaxation and "smooth" moves. Modern, hip-yet-mellow -a "destination for rejuvenation.

New Age Retailer
A strong seller in Europe, Buddha-Lounge has been repackaged, remastered and remixed by Sequoia Records for release in the United States. The fantasy of Buddha-Lounge is that of a dance club lost in the realm of universal dreams. Eclectic world-beat rhythms gently soothe and entrance creating an atmosphere conducive to movement, including yoga. Multicultural voices create fascinating vocal stylings, affording listeners a welcome respite from the cares of the day. This soothing and nurturing album is a destination resort for the soul.

Three of the generous 13 tracks providing more than 70 minutes of music - are by Sequoia Records Artists, including founders David and Steve Gordon, Gary Stadler and Stephannie, and Zingaia. Other artists include Roedelius, Drum N Space, Mergener and more. Synthesizers, wicked-cool percussion, guitars, bass, drums, and vocals are featured. For those customers who are interested in what's hot in Europe or who are simply into fresh music, Buddha-Lounge is the place to visit.


Global Rhythm Magazine
Sequoia Records celebrates 20 years of drums, gardens, fairies, serenity and sanctuary with Buddha Lounge. Gary Stadler and Stephannie offer Celtic crooning with sitar. There is Native American rhythm, trippy synth swirls, the potent vocals of Althea W., touches-o-funk and spare percussion. The relaxing Buddha Lounge is a meditative collection of Sequoia's own. A portion of the proceeds are earmarked for the Rainforest Action Network.
