Music Design In Review
With YOGA SALON, Sequoia continues their streak of releasing mesmerizing compilations that seamlessly blend groove with ethnic color. This time around, David & Steve Gordon's enchanting musical brew features contemporary chill tunes with a decidedly Indian spin. This means that mantras, sitar and the low thump of the tabla are deftly fused to mid-tempo beats, dreamy synthesizer backdrops and a plethora of techno samples. If you enjoyed Sequoia's "Buddha-Lounge" albums you will be right at home here - both feature a non-stop mix of mystically-minded tunes perfect for a lounge atmosphere. Among some of the artists on this outing are Jaya Lakshmi, Artemisia, Sophia, TYA, the Gordon brothers and more. Great for relaxing, entertaining and especially yoga and bodywork.

All Music Guide
Compiled and mixed by Steve and David Gordon, Yoga Salon follows in the meditative footsteps of the duo's successful Buddha-Lounge and Caf de Luna series. Contributions from the Gordons, Sophia , Karmacosmic and others reveal a rich tapestry of sound that relies heavily on ethnic instrumentation and atmospheric programming. Yoga Salon is an effective companion to casual dinners and its ethereal worldbeat rhythms, chants, and deep pulses of electronica provide the background for what promises to be a real hot time on the old yoga mat.
   — James Christopher Monger


Articmist.org
Sequoia Grooves Yoga Salon contains themes compiled by brothers Steve and David Gordon that continue to open the road to musicians and composers outside as well as within the U.S, with a combination of hypnotic themes clearly and directly. Skillfully mixing original and exotic Hindu music with modern electronica, this CD is especially good for yoga sessions. Certainly the main thing is that the general tone of these twelve tracks is relaxation with an invitation to meditation.
   — Jorge Sergio


Muze
Assembled and mixed by Steve and David Gordon, this compilation features various artists blending contemporary electronic technology with Eastern musical styles. The result is an absorbing body of music designed to enhance the yoga experience. Of course, this album can also be used to complement meditation practices, massage therapy, martial arts exercises, and other likeminded activities.

Artemisia's Perfumed Garden is a delightfully tranquil composition. This piece hypnotizes with its repetitive percussion patterns and aromatic flute playing. Steve Gordon's Holding the Vision exacts a similar musical vibe. Employing tribal rhythms, exotic flute trills, and a distant vocal choir, Gordon invokes the feel of far-off safaris and pastoral landscapes. Another track, Bolo Shri Krsna by Jaya Lakshmi features flowing vocals, droning keyboards, and throbbing tabla drums. The album's closer Tempel der Stille by Tau is a contemplative track that focuses on a plaintive female vocal melody; Tau's use of exotic strings also adds to the composition's overall mood. In general, YOGA SALON is a transfixing set of music that encourages inner peace and spiritual health.


Prudence
With Yoga Salon Sequoia continues their winning series of releasing amazing compilations (especially the successful Buddha Lounge and Cafe de Luna series) that seamlessly blend electronica with world flavors. This time around, David & Steve Gordon's enchanting musical brew features contemporary chill tunes with a decidedly Indian spin. The brothers, who in recent years have created a great stir with their own albums in the New Instrumental Music scene, have assembled an amazing line-up of the leading edge of the nu-India groove - Ghandharva Cafe, Jaya Lakshmi, KarmaCosmic, Wynne Paris, Artemisia, TAU, Althea W., Sophia, David & Steve Gordon and more exotic lounge luminaries.

Ancient chants from India, a multi-cultural array of ethnic instruments, hypnotic world rhythms and a spicy mix of modern electronica weave seamlessly together, creating an elegantly divine mood. De-stress and relax with this definitive hip soundtrack perfectly suited for everything from enhancing your Yoga sessions to unwinding after work, dinner with friends or just any time you want to kick back and slow down.


Amazing Sounds Magazine
Although the styles of the different compositions are quite varied, this compilation tends towards a rhythmic style and range between Atmospheric Pop and World Music.
   — Hector Gordon


Creation Magazine
As the types and genres of music being 'fused' increase, so do the termsused to describe the resulting music. Eventually, categorization rationale goes out the window- this CD has been described in a press release as world chant meets chill-out and in another source as accessible worldbeat pop: It has Indian influences wedded to an upbeat pop sound. It successfully merges the old with the new; the past with the present. For example. sitars, wooden flutes and percussives meld with thoughtfully svnthesized elements. It is an enjoyable CD and a good introduction to the individual artists, including TYA. Althea W, Sophia. Artemesia.Karma Cosmic. David & Steve Gordon, Jaya Lakshimi. Win Meyersan. Wynne Paris and TAU.
