Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Just another chillout CD? Perhaps not. Although on first listen there are no obvious standouts, Nirvana Lounge 2 turns out to be a grower. Prem Joshua's "Secret Place" has a very catchy melody, along with some very soothing woodwind and sitar. "Kissing" by Bliss is certainly a highlight with the accordion adding a subtle touch that provides it with that something different, while the orchestration remains simple yet effective. There's a change of mood with Samcos's "El 68", the slow jazz/funk grove is mixing well with a nice downbeat rhythm. Ganga's "Hi Fi Love" continues the jazz theme, this time with a calypso rhythm thrown in for good measure which adds a nice summery sway to the track. CD2 "Ethnic lounge" opens with the trippy "We Enter" by Alladin, a refreshing upbeat change from CD1. The jazz theme dwindles and becomes more dance-based with Blue Planet's "Latin Masala" being the only possible exception. Mo'horizons' cover of "Hit The Road Jack" brings the set to an end on a high note, its hammond organ and brass section turn the track into something that could have fitted in nicely on an Austin Powers soundtrack. --Jamie Clarke

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better - it does.
As an owner of all Buddha Bar series, all Claude Challe work, and Nirvana Lounge vol 1, plus many other works in and around this genre, I can honestly say I was blown away by Nirvana Lounge vol 2.
The flow on each disc is great, and the separation of the content for each, perfect: disk 1 - subtle, at times haunting, always interesting, never annoying; disk 2 - interesting, plenty of original ethnic percussion - definitely the party disc.
An up to date compilation with hitherto almost completely unique content: buy this one now, before 10 other labels copy parts of it and you end up with 5 or 6 CDs called Karma this, Buddha that, priced slightly less than Nirvana Lounge, whose content overlap by 50% and none completely satisfy. This one does.
This album has just overtaken Claude Challe's Sun as my favourite.

Nirvana lounge vol:2 is a great combination of the downbeat, the chill, and the down right funky. I'm not sure how Claude Challe constantly surpasses himself with every new cd that he compiles. This is a truly great mixture of world music with that eastern slant. I loved vol 1 and vol2 is just a good.
Cd1:Promenade Nirvanesque, has some great tranquil themes from 'window of dreams' by Nash Didan to 'sonhar' by Praful, it is very well mixed to form a pure blend of sounds and rhythms.
Cd2: Ethnic Lounge is a more up piece personal favourite include 'humanity' by a Guy called Gerald and 'Latin masala' by Blue Planet, my one and it is only a very mild 'not sure' is the inclusion of Faithless but I think that's just me. Claude Challe hasn't disappointed true disciples to his music, it also, as with all the 'Buddha Bar' series or 'Sun' easily accessible to all listeners who like to kick back and enjoy 2 great cd's of mind enhancing music.
From the sleeve notes 'Nirvana is born in a whirlwind of passion and excitement', quite.
It truly is a Chall' O World

After the relative disappointment of the last one in the "series"- Buddha Bar IV - I wondered if this genre had really burnt out...... but no!...... to my delight this is a wonderfully original and flowing compilation.

Claude "The Master" is back - hurrah!

Enlightening Music 9 Jan 2003
By Melinda R. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While out shopping one day (in Japan), I happened into a very hip & modern looking shop with the most grooviest, exotic music I've heard in a long time, playing on their system. I had to have it...and now I use it all the time while teaching Yoga. My students are always asking about it...and since I bought the last one in the store here, I was really happy to see that Amazon is also selling it. I'm going to be sure and let everyone know where to get it now.

Infectious Melodies that captivate the ethnic mood 18 July 2003
By Sajid Khan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a compilation that is ChillOut at its best. The ethnic touch is amazing and vivid, trust me, as a Pakistani, the fusion of Indian tuneage is flawless and appropriate. Even my American wifey has proceeded to monopolize the disc. Additionally, my four year old explicitly asks for it to be played as a lullaby.

Unique, Fresh, Excellent! 26 Feb 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this on a whim, never had heard of it. I'm very glad I did! Unpretentious electronic grooves, that actually have a groove! Very cool chill out with friends music. Whenever someone hears it, they always ask excitedly "Who is this?!"
I highly recommend it!

Namaste 21 Feb 2005
By W. Lehman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although Nirvana Lounge I was tough to follow, Claude Challe succeeds once again with Nirvana Lounge II. His addictive music choices are carefully chosen to create yet another masterpiece that simply transcends human life. I often wander off while listening to his music. Although not fully intended for meditation, Claude Challe does set a meditative environment that simply awakens the mind allowing you to enjoy your life free from any disturbing events. As far as I can tell no one can equal his musical choices. Just listen to the first disk and ask yourself, "Why didn't I get this CD long time ago?" If you enjoy writing, this CD is perfect for opening your creative mind. For an added bonus, visit the Nirvana Lounge restaurant is Paris (3, Avenue Matignon, Paris, 75008 France).
