Chakra (Full Instrumentation)
Style: Modern | Difficulty: Medium Difficult | Grade: 4
Chakra is based on the Hindu concept of seven main energy centers of the body with each spinning area ascending from the base of the spine. The seven segments are based on each ascending musical mode creating a unique harmonic character to every chakra. The modern approach to harmony and a fresh twist in interpretation departs from an obvious ethnic flavor than one might expect.
