Chinmaya on Nightingale Records
In 1992 Chinmaya got together with Persian musician Sangit Sirus (violin, oud, sitar and percussion) and producer Sangit Om (flute) in north Germany to make a whirling CD for Nightingale Records. Bengali Babu (also featured on Terra Incognita ‘No Goal but the Path’) played tabla and hand percussion.

From 1995 to 1996 Chinmaya released three CDs on the now-defunct Nightingale Records label in Germany. Re-mixed and mastered tracks from these found their way, under new titles, on to Chinmaya’s later CDs ‘Yoga on Sacred Ground’ and ‘Sacred Temples of India’. Several compositions were contributed by Sadhu Bolland (accordion and voice), Manish Vyas (tabla and santoor) and Nandin Baker (flute). Other musicians involved were: Sangit Om (flutes and keyboards), Henrik Gumoes (percussion), Andreas Bother (clarinet), Naman M.Leuschner (trumpet), Patra Buunk (violin and voice) and Friedmar Hitzer (violin).
