2015 two CD set. Buddha-Bar has set itself as a Lounge music pioneer since the 90's. Known and recognized in France and internationally, Buddha-Bar is the lounge music reference of talent spotters in lounge and electronic music. With a subtle mix of chill, deep and electronic music influences, Buddha-Bar XVII is no exception to the savoir-faire of the little Parisian label, George V Records. Drawing inspiration from Morocco, this opus promises warmth and sensuality to take you to an enchanting dream world. Bold mixes, hypnotic compositions and aesthetic arrangements are the key components of this new selection filled with emotions. Travel from the coasts to the middle of the desert and let yourself be carried away by the warm and soothing melodies that are the signature of the very first opus of the music collection.
Following the success of the first 'Buddha-Bar Beach' the series now moves to the luxury Santa Marina Hotel, located in Ornos, Mykonos. Still in association with FG Radio, this new CD promises warmth and sensuality and journeys to the most beautiful beaches and clubs worldwide. On the turntables, DJ Ravin (Buddha-Bar) and Camilo Franco (Space Ibiza and FG Radio) mix enchanting tracks that emulate the rhythm of the waves. The first part has been carefully selected by Ravin to end your beach day with style. Unwind on the biggest sofa on the beach and allow yourself to be carried away by exciting and deep tracks and melodies.
The Buddha Bar compilation albums are a widely acclaimed series of compilation albums issued by the Buddha Bar bar, restaurant, and hotel franchise created by restaurateur Raymond Visan and DJ and interior designer Claude Challe in Paris, France. Following its establishment, the Buddha Bar "became a reference among foreign yuppies and wealthy tourists visiting the city", and "has spawned numerous imitators", becoming popular in part because of the DJ's choice of eclectic, avant-garde music. It became known internationally for issuing popular compilations of lounge, chill-out music and world music, also under the Buddha Bar brand, released by George V Records. Buddha Bar began issuing compilations in 1999, and has since "made a name for itself with its Zen lounge music CDs and remains a hit – especially with tourists".
