Ananda Xenia Shakti Opens Minds And Ears With “Cosmic Quiver”

Ananda Xenia Shakti & Love Power the Band are back with their follow-up single to the highly successful mediation track, “I Am Love.” Cosmic Quiver is a fast-paced, inspirational dance-along track that Ananda Xenia Shakti professes is meant to “open the Third Eye and The Beyond. To help us all awaken our New Earth Consciousness, where illusion can gracefully and lovingly dance away… and Freedom Rise.” Following the trend of capturing the essence of sacred and heavenly locations, Ananda Xenia Shakti channels this energy into her music as she guides her listener into the trance-like state in which we can connect with our inner spirit, an awakening within ourselves while being entertained and challenged alike. As a professional Sananda Yoga coach, Ananda Xenia Shakti utilizes these practices in her music to form a connection with her students, yet she leaves us with a stand-alone musical score as well. Coupled with Love Power the Band, these charismatic and inspirational chants are rhythmically delivered in an enjoyable and delightful manner, eliciting a dance response from their audience. Of course, this journey is only complete with the stunning visual performance Ananda Xenia Shakti delivers in her video accompaniment. The classical dance majestically channels the power of the deep metaphorical rhythmic passages captivates, and entrances the viewer, making it impossible not to feel that spiritual and karmic connection with the song.

Although Cosmic Quiver is not produced to attract a pop music following, this track should be added to any easy listening, meditation, or spiritual connection playlist. The mature and professional package expertly delivers on its intended demographic, yet leaves room for newcomers to fall in love with the dance, the chant, the thematic nature of the lyrics, and the peace of mind which Cosmic Quiver supplies. I found this track to be very enjoyable, the articulations and phrasing in the vocals attached themselves to my first impressions, making it a joy to attempt to anticipate the next syncopation and resolution. This reviewer highly recommends that interested parties consume the translation passage, and the personal reflection Ananda Xenia Shakti has provided with the video for Cosmic Quiver.
