As part one of a series using the ancient Sanskrit texts of the Mandukya Upanishads, this opening verse is dedicated to the sound of creation, the vibration of 'Aum' (commonly known as ‘Om’). Listening to ‘Aum” will align every cell of your body with that of the universe, simultaneously healing, grounding and invigorating you. This is a track to relax and wind-down to which will also leave you feeling more inspired and consciously aware.
Ch'Lu's vision is to transmit the healing and calming vibrations of Sanskrit and other beautiful languages to a wider and contemporary audience in a unique and engaging way.

Ch'Lu features in new German book...

German climber and author Tanja Weidner has now published her latest non-fiction book Zwei Kartoffeln in Laos, in which she talks about her time in Laos and meeting Ch'Lu, discovering her music, hosting her concerts, and how it then led to the penning of the confessional and hilarious song Learning To Rock-climb, which Ch'Lu then shot using the local climbing and Laos community. Many happy memories are shared in this moving and astounding book, ( I am under the name Camilla Mathias) which you can buy here on Amazon
