CHANTS ENCOUNTER: Overtone Singing around the World

Standard

Ajoutée le 22 nov. 2014

CHANTS ENCOUNTER is an extraordinary journey of sight and sound to the world of Gregorian Chant, Tibetan monasteries, and the centuries-old Mongolian style of overtone singing. It demonstrates the powerful healing and meditative qualities of ritual chanting and overtone harmonics.

Host and producer, Don Hill captures a special “chants encounter” of the Ganden Jangtse monks of India. In exile since the invasion of their Tibetan homeland in 1959, the Ganden Jangtse monks perform sacred dances and ritual overtone chanting to raise money to sustain their transplanted monastery.

Outstanding location footage features the people and monasteries of Tibet; the construction of a beautiful sand mandala floor-painting by the Ganden Jangtse monks; Gregorian chant complimented by
glimpses of the harmonically stunning interior of Amien’s Notre Dame, a 13th century cathedral in northern France; the Slot Canyons of Arizona; as well as Canada’s breathtaking Rocky Mountains and scenic Pacific Coast.
