Coleman Barks the author of 'The Essential Rumi' describes the 'The Two Lovers' as 'pulsing, haunting and lively'. "The Two Lovers" is an album for lovers, romantics, yogis, poets, spiritualists, therapsists and all. The album contains long performances of meditative instrumental solos on the sarod, tabla, oud and rubab with spoken word poetry. The beautiful soothing and hypnotic melodies on the violin are performed by Master Carnatic violinist V.V. Murari from Chennai, India. The idea of the "the lover" and the "beloved" is central to many spiritual practices of this world. From Christianity, to Islamic Sufisim, to Yogic Hinduism, to Judaism and more. In many parts of the world, Christian spiritualists see themselves as brides of Chirst. In Sufism, love and God are the same as in the poems of Hafiz. In India you have the very deeply sensual spiritual poetry of Meera for her dark hued, flute playing lover "Krishna". The lover in all these traditions speak of the Divine, but the term also translates to ones own significant other, parents, children, nature or life itself.
