Underground Sounds

Reissue. Purple LP. To hear Sheila Chandra's work is to realise that the voice is the purest expression of human emotion; the closest instrumental connection to our bodies. The compositions on The Zen Kiss have an added poignance when encountered today. They are both a snapshot of an innovative singer at her highest performative power, as well as a record of an ineffable sound that has yet to be replicated, and likely never will. When we drop the needle on The Zen Kiss we reach ever-closer to that special moment of Chandra giving voice to her innermost music, to her communion between the singer and those of us being sung to. This reissue features updated artwork and new sleeve notes.
