Some “Shambhala Dance” reviews:
RJ Lannan, New Age Reporter, March 10, 2005 “Barbara Markay taps into the pulse of the planet and …Shambhala to bring you an album of upbeat dance grooves, sultry Spanish percussion and ethnic-tinged instrumentals…music that will escort you to a mystical place of relaxation and “dreamthought”….Markay’s warm organic voice balances well with the Middle Eastern rhythm and Mediterranean guitar…dramatic…guaranteed to get your pulse going…”
Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire magazine, April 2005 “…slinky and sexy…a tasty and spicy amalgam that is the aural equivalent of exotic cuisine!......a true “global stew” of sultry melodies and sensual beats…puts a fresh spin on a tired genre…she could stand toe-to-toe with James Asher…inspired!”
