Art combines electronic production, live instrumentation, and a variety of Western and Eastern cultural influences to craft his uniquely relaxing and soul-searching sounds.Tawanghar released his spiritually searching album “Soul of the Earth” in 2016. A year later he dropped “Buddha Lounge”, the instrumental album charted on Billboard #1 for 13+ weeks in the New Age Chart. This was followed by “Buddha Lounge 2” which won many accolades, and was also considered for the 61st Grammy Awards. June 2019 sees Art Tawanghar raise the bar even higher, with the releases of “Buddha Lounge 3 Chill – New Age California” – containing 7 deeply meditative and life-affirming songs. Everything within its leaps and bounds is quite remarkable on this album, either through pure musicality, or the immense emotional basis that Tawanghar’s arrangements thrive on. None more so than the surprising opening track.
