In her first CD recording, ENTER THE LIGHT, Angela Fischetti offers songs of joy and devotion.
Angela selects classic Sanskrit chants interpreted with chill, lounge music instrumentation. She also sings "Yemaya Assessu" in African and the traditional song "Amazing Grace." The album features Angela's own composition "Enter The Light," sung in both English and Sanskrit.
Angela's inspiration for the title song of the album came when she saw a shimmering light entering her Miami Beach apartment - a subtle glimmer that landed on a framed photograph of Judy Garland standing under a spotlight. She knew then that her father had passed away, or rather, had entered the light.
At the time, Angela was studying to become a yoga teacher, a path that led her to bhakti yoga -- the yoga of devotion through chanting. ENTER THE LIGHT is an exploration of bhakti yoga and the art of healing. The album marks Angela's return to singing thirty-six years after having first heard Judy Garland's voice. Dedicated to Judy Garland, the album also expresses reverence to those loved ones Angela has lost in her own life, as well as to the victims of 9/11.
Hugh Martin has praised Angela and ENTER THE LIGHT: "Your voice your face, your form and your spirit are all beautiful. What an oasis your music is. . . I yearn for serenity and your lovely album is the answer to my prayer. . . . I love your musicians also. They give a new meaning to the world percussion. . . . I knew Judy so well that I think it's safe to say I am sensitive to what she would have loved; I think she would've loved you a lot."
