Grammy winner American cellist Darling plans to record Hindu-themed album

Grammy winner American maverick cellist and composer David Darling (Buy CD / Download MP3 Online) plans to record a Hindu-themed album.

Titled “Everything Is Heart Breaking”, Darling reportedly wants to record this solo CD with meditation drones and singing in raga scales in collaboration with German producer Manfried Eicher of ECM Records and keyboardist Kit Walker.
