New Age fusion at its finest.

The man behind the curtain (and in some cases, kirtan) of Tulku is musician/producer Jim Wilson. On previous efforts, he's enlisted the aid of Jai Uttal and others. On Season of Souls, Wilson calls upon the likes of vocalist Krishna Das, peyote singer Mike Primeaux and seventh generation Mayan medicine man Don Alejandro. This is new age fusion at its finest, synthesizing beats and voices from around the planet, epitomized by "Cold Mountain Meltdown," a haunting epic driven by Das 'rumbling baritone.
