Spirit Travelers is a duo of seasoned musicians from Canada.
Eric Mandala practice world music and the sacred singing for the past twenty years and Joseph A. Ruel is the owner of the Lynxpoint Studio and producer of the sound frames of Spirit travelers.
The 2 companions united to bring the old wisdom from the Hindu Gods into psychedelic music, mixing complex digital sound-shaping to analog growling bass-lines with a huge place left for old ethnic instruments.
Together they have revived the roots of psychedelic music (psychedelic means 'manifestation of the soul') by mixing several styles with sacred chants a little everywhere on the planet.
Their musical style is similar to Chill Step / Psy Step type with an ethnic twist.This is a premiere for Altar Records to release a full album of this style. You know you can count on the full quality of our releases, so we hope you enjoy rediscovering Mantras of the Hindu Gods through their music!
