Biography

Upon hearing the sacred qualities in “Zen Breakfast”, it comes as no surprise that Karunesh’s natural talent for musical expression was initially nurtured in a spiritual environment. The music of Zen Breakfast draws upon sounds from ancient spiritual and religious traditions in ways that speak to the deep-felt longing in each of us for spiritual connection.

Product Description

Product Description

Karunesh's latest world fusion album captures the magic and wonders of India, as he experienced life there during his many visits. Enter into a world of mysticism and spirituality and experience a musical journey through the timeless dessert sands to the modern day India of Bollywood. Colors of the East features authentic instruments such as bansuri, duduk, sitar, dobro, and tambura in a wonderful mix of traditional and modern Indian songs to help you relax and rejuvenate.

About the Artist

It was during five years that Karunesh lived in an ashram in Germany that he had the opportunity to learn from and play together with musicians from cultures around the world. Music was a vital part of the mystical experience being pursued and where Karunesh (Sanskrit for 'compassion') says he developed the ability to weave different styles and feelings together into a living symbiosis - a symbiosis carried by his own very unique and personal 'melodies from the heart.' Karunesh was born in 1956 in Cologne, Germany. Although he had been drawn to music as a child and played in bands as a teen, he chose to study graphic design as a career. After attaining his degree, the path did not feel right for him and as sometimes happens to prompt us of a critical need for a change in direction, Karunesh was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. For two weeks, he was suspended between life and death and this experience sparked the beginning of his spiritual path. In 1979 he made his first journey to India and began to follow his heart. In 1984 Karunesh released his first album 'Sounds of the Heart,' an album that quickly became a classic in the new age genre. More albums followed. With 450,000 albums sold to date, Karunesh has become established as one of the best-known artists in the genre. Karunesh has lived in Maui, Hawaii, since 1992, bathed in the healing warmth and fragrances of the tropics. From this island's feminine embrace, he creates music that holds a beautiful, sacred and healing resonance for those who listen.

I was lucky enough to have a Massage to this music, it is brilliant, I really felt I was transported to warmth, spice and calm. The singing in it is beautiful and this CD had a real 'feel good' factor to it for me.

Wonderful 29 Mar. 2014
By roberta peck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great state of mind type of music. I was so surprised to come across such excellence in what I will describe as an exotic enchanted relaxing sound with enough rhythm to enmesh the body and mind into what feels like a flowing dance. Perfect to cut vegetables to and move about the kitchen making something which takes time to enjoy the whole process of.

Very relaxing 14 Mar. 2014

Format: Audio CD
I really love this CD. This was my first introduction to Karunesh, and I like the instrumental journey the listener goes through with each song. I also rather like the vocal and thought it meshes well with the sound.

Different - Very nice! 4 Jun. 2013
By redbull21 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I found this disc to be mesmerizing - with the Indian styled instrumentation and vocals, and particularly the percussion is very catching. That this is a European (German) individual who has been heavily influenced by the far eastern melodies and sound is what sets this apart from recordings by artists originating from the region itself.

I really like this, and will explore other offerings from Karunesh.

Update 6/8/13: I listened to this 3 times yesterday while working from my office at home. The more I hear it the more I like it! Really infectious rhythms, and also calming. Changing my review from 4 to 5 stars. I highly recommend this recording!
