Susan Deikman writes the Jewish-Music mailing list:
I'm pleased and excited to announce the release of my new CD!
Kiss the Beloved: Kabbalistic Kirtan
Talented musicians on the recording include:
Lenny Seidman (tabla, frame drum)

KABBALISTIC KIRTAN is a new Jewish musical experience, a fusion of East and West inspired by chant from India (kirtan) and music of the Middle East. Blending inspiring melodies, driving drum beats, and call and response chanting of short Hebrew prayers and names of God, Kabbalistic kirtan inspires a sense of Oneness and unity with all, marked by deep joy and even ecstasy.
