All Is Forgiven blends sacred chant, mantra, crystal singing bowls and Ashana’s incomparable vocal improvisations. Called “a gift from heaven” by New Age Retailer, All Is Forgiven features one of the most exquisitely beautiful interpretations of the Ave Maria ever to be recorded.

“The first thing you notice about the amazing voice of Ashana is her radiance. An entire children’s chorale seems to dwell within this one female voice-timeless, ethereal, and-in its egoless way-powerful. Her voice stays so still and centered that one becomes cognizant of the world turning around it, the music playing, the time passing, but Ashana is outside it all. Her stunner of an album, All Is Forgiven, is perfectly suited in length and tonality for a short meditation. A blissful rendition of “Ave Maria,” opens with a slow three-note-chime series over which her vocals slowly coalesce, surging to operatic highs or holding long, healing energy tones as the music dictates. The miraculous quality of Ashana’s voice, its power to soothe and heal as it soars up octaves and holds notes until they blend with chimes into infinity … comes to us like a message from beyond, bearing white radiance and creating the healing space with which we can remember true destinies and connect with the eternal grace of the present moment.” – Daily Om
