Terry Oldfield & Soraya – Temple Moon


Terry Oldfield and Soraya’s new album is called “Temple Moon”. This music slows down the busy train of thoughts to reveal the always present sense of pure being. The chiming of temple bells and the soaring magic of the flute invite us to a peaceful and sacred space where ancient mantras soothe and calm the listener.

Soraya says: “Recording of our new mantra album Temple Moon has been quite an epic journey for Terry Oldfield and myself. This album of sacred chants with soaring flutes was recorded over the past year here in our Australian Studio with Terry’s genius ear for detail at the helm. It is designed as a perfect subliminal accompaniment for your yoga practice calling us to awaken to the truth of being. We have faced quite a few challenges during it’s recording with Terry losing an eye to Melanoma and my mothers passing from bowel cancer. We have become richer from both experiences as Terry shares in his recent blog: A Blessing in Diguise.”

“Terry and I both enjoy ancient languages. Sanskrit, meaning ‘perfected’ or ‘refined’, is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, of of all attested human languages, known as ‘the mother of all languages,’. It belongs to the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European family. The oldest form of Sanskrit is Vedic Sanskrit that dates back to the 2nd millennium BCE. This album is predominately in Sanskrit.”
