Songs of Compassion (2004)

Evocative recitations of the mantras of Padmasambhava and Avalokiteshvara

Sonia Loinsworth performs her own compositions over two of the Tibetan mantras in this heart spelling album. The beautfiful combination of contemplative compositions with Loinsworth's clear, yet very powerful vocals, gives this album a rich variety and intensity.

Guru Rinpoche Mantra (2007)

This album revolves around the Mantra which invokes the blessings and sacred energies of Guru Rinpoche, the enlightened Indian master who was among the first to bring Buddhism to Tibet.
In five new compositions, drawing inspiration from female Tibetan as well as Gregorian chanting, Sonia Loinsworth's rich, warm and subtle voice expresses the multidimensional qualities of Guru Rinpoche's heart essence in a haunting and timeless way that supports and enhances contemplative practices such as meditation, T'ai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga, and many other forms of healing.

Live from Tomba Emmanuelle (2012)

Over the past twenty years Sonia Loinsworth has offered many concerts/recitals at the legendary Tomba Emmanuelle in Oslo, and we felt it was time to share this extraordinary and unique musical atmosphere that reflects the deep spirit from whence it emerges so amazingly.

This recording is as close as it gets to being there. The pure sound of Sonia singing Tibetan Buddhist mantras in a state of contemplation is lent wings with subtle drone instrumentation on three crystal quartz singing bowls, all enhanced by the acoustic soundscape of the Tomba.

A tribute to Billie Holiday (2015)

A hundred years after Billie Holiday was born, we are celebrating her musical life.

She paved the path for female singers within the genres of blues and jazz, and portrayed through a long career the hard life available for women of color at the time.

Billie Holiday recorded a wide range of classics and her music is still played widely throughout the world. The songs she sang have been reproduced in hundreds of new recordings by other artists over the past century.
