"Not since the days of the Singing Nun has Gospel music seen the likes of Rev. Yolanda."-Len Rogers, Stonewall Society. Volume 2 from the acclaimed Rev. Yolanda's Country Gospel Kirtan series.Country Gospel, Brazilian,& Hindu sounds with Interfaith lyrics.
This is volume 2 of the critically acclaimed series Rev. Yolanda's Country Gospel Kirtan.
Following Review by Bill Turner (former lead guitarist for Bill Haley and The comets):
"Rev. Yolanda's voice is expressive, believable...and just plain great!....cleverly weaving elements of the traditional eastern tabla, combining it with gentle bluegrass instrumentation, superb vocal harmonies, stark bare-bones electric guitar...and making it ALL work! All 12 songs on this CD are "A" material...there is not a weak cut on this whole album. Rev Yolanda is the best "Contemporary Christian" songwriter I've heard in decades!"
This comment from a fan:
"Dear Reverend Yolanda. I was the security guard who bought your CD. I am really enjoying your music although I am an atheist. I listen to it several times a day. All the best. Cheers. jms"
