"Sacred Love feels beautiful, wonderful, healing, uplifting and refreshing, all at the same time and there is something wonderful here for everyone," said Shambhu. "My collaboration with producer Will Ackerman, mixer/engineer Corin Nelsen and incredible artists like George Brooks, Tony Levin, Ravichandra Kulur, Eugene Friesen and Jeff Haynes, brought such diversity to my music, creating a really exciting-to-hear afro-latino-jazz-indian fusion. There are songs here that might make you feel like dancing, meditating, reflecting, singing, smiling and crying."
