Singapore, templu hindus

Thank you!
This temple that was built in 1925 is located in the center of China Town at the junction of Keong Saik Road and Kreta Ayer Road. Nagarthars also called, Nattukottai Chettiars are famous money lending community from Southern part of Tamilnadu, India. In 1920, the government acquired the temple land as part of the hospital extension plan and gave a sum of money to the Nagarathars. The Nagarathars then bought the current land and built the temple grandly by spending a huge amount of money. During the construction of the new temple, the Nagarathars found the Vinayagar Idol at the old temple near the hospital in a dilapidated condition. So, they decided to bring a new Black Stone Vinayagar Idol from India. As per the religious agamas (Procedures), the dilapidated idol was to be immersed at sea. But, few Nagarathars felt that it would be a breach of promise made to Thiru Ponnambala Swamigal.

Powerful feelings varied and tender. 40 musicians from twelve different countries: Africa, Middle East, India, Europe and America are traveling with you through the musical cultures of their own countries.

  • "This prolific German composer, whose real name is Oliver Serano-Alve has produced numerous fantastic albums. He also created his own record company Sattva Records which initially was to release his own music, but has gone on to publish many other artists and showcase the talents of many traditional performers. The albums by Shanti that will be of most interest to Enigmatic fans are his more recent ones, all of which are amazing journeys. His albums are actually to be found under the artist heading 'Oliver Shanti and Friends' which gives credit to all the many artists who perform on his albums. "Well Balanced", published in 1995 (and republished in 1998), is a superb Native American Cross-over album for you to enjoy. Beautifully ambient, upbeat and emotional the songs mix the organic vocals and Native American vocals with synthesizers and drum loops.
  • The best song on this album is difficult to choose, but I'd end up going for the epic 6 minute "Fight Without Fear" with it's spoken vocals, traditional war drumming, plaintive flutes and an ever-increasing feeling of tension before the song explodes into a female-voiced choir. The only song not composed by Shanti on the album is You Can Hear Them Dancing which was written and performed by Joanne Shenandoah and arranged by Shanti -- it is a moving ballad with a very catchy chorus. "Water - Four Circles of Life" was the first single off the album and was made into a very impressive music video which is one of the best examples of Native American Cross-over music.
  • His follow-up album "Seven Times Seven" published in 1998, leaves behind the Native American style and embraces the music of the Middle East. This may be my favourite album of his to date, as it mixes traditional Indian and Middle Eastern singing with beautiful synths and instrumentation. More joyous than most of his other albums, Shanti has assembled for this album a group of distinctive voices. Songs like Onon Mweng featuring the velvety voice of Diana Isaac and an uplifting flute part. The title song is a rhythmic song with infectious melodies. The best song for me on this album though would have to be Al Atfaal with the gorgeous voice of Amal Morkus. The whole album is overall more electronic and features some truly beautiful themes. Yet Shanti's greatest power is his ability to multi-layer so many influences and chants into just one song, myriad of traditional and classical instruments, not to mention synthesizers and electronic bass lines.
