The Bodhi Mantra by Howard Givens and Craig Padilla is a formative work of deeply immersive music, harmonic, somewhat melodic, and occasionally rhythmic, that shares the idea of an individual looking within one’s identity to recognize the power of the soul - the true self, and to continuously reach above and beyond the limitations that we have come to believe in, recognizing the greatness of that existence.
On their third collaboration, Givens and Padilla continue a musical journey that follows the concepts introduced in their previous album, “Being of Light”. Using pure organic tones within their many analog, digital, and modular synthesizers, this duo has created hypnotic and meditative music to stir the heart, embrace the soul, and free the mind; music that is based on their appreciation of experiencing the perception of consciousness. Bodhi is a Sanskrit word translated as “enlightenment” or “awakening” which relates to a Buddhist concept of spiritual awareness, wherein Bodhi is synonymous with the state of nirvana - being freed from hate, greed and ego or the unenlightened identity. The Mantra is the musical expression of this serene offering. Delicate, breath-like pulses set an intention of mindful solemnity, punctuated by moments of fulfillment and enlightenment, and underlining discovery of the ultimate relationship with the one true self. This is The Bodhi Mantra.
