Shiro Fujioka The Rings of Shani by Shiro Fujioka (DJ Shiro) published on 2010/12/09 02:40:23 +0000 This composition is based on the Hindu deity/ energy channel of Shani also known as Saturn. Shani is one of the Navagraha which are the nine primary celestial beings in Hindu astrology.He is known as the greatest teacher who represents patience, effort and endurance. Shani is also known as the greatest trouble giver as well as the greatest well wisher. He is depicted dark in color, clothed in black; holding a sword, arrows and two daggers and variously mounted on a black crow. This composition was created with the following instruments: Hang Drum An instrument created in Switzerland around 2000 it sounds similar to a steel drum but it’s played with the hands and produces a warmer sound than it’s distant cousin the steel drum. Manjeera An ancient instrument that is in the cymbal family used in devotional music of India. Gong An East Asian musical instrument that takes the form of a flat metal disc which is hit with a mallet. The sound it emits creates pressure waves that vibrate the energy meridians in the body and brings them into balance. The sound of the gong is know for pulling negative energy out of you like a vacuum. I highly recommend experiencing a Deep Gong Meditation your body will thank you for it. Harp A stringed instrument that has been used as early as 4000 BC in Egypt to heal. The vibrations emitted by the harp possesses unusual power both to calm and to energize humans and animals. Other instruments: Acoustic Guitar, Upright Bass, synths and drum machine were also used.
