Myo Edizioni, A Little indipendent Buddhist music label & publishing house has released “Horai – Shin Buddhist Chants”, a new album by Massimo Claus.
The tracks gathered in this album are ancient sacred chants belonging to a tradition of Pure Land Buddhism known as Jōdo Shinshū, of which the Horai school comprises an important spiritual lineage. Some of these chants (like the Shoshinge or Junirai) are performed as part of the daily liturgy by devotees of this Buddhist school.
“Horai” represents a profound synthesis where spirituality meets electronic music and electronic music becomes spirituality, recorded at the frequency 432 Hz.
Massimo Claus has not resurrected these ancient chants purely for entertainment, but has done so with a spiritual and cultural purpose in mind: to make these chants better known, not only to other Buddhists, but to all seekers.
Massimo Claus also released a two-part short video interview on his latest work:
