On the seventh volume of the Buddha-Bar series, the mixing duties are split between DJs Ravin and David Visan – the latter a protégé of Buddha-Bar founder Claude Challe. Disc one is highlighted by the Charles Webster remix of Salif Keita's “Moussoulou,” Federico Aubele's “Postales,” and My Phuong Nguyen & Thierry David's "Huong Viêtnam," while the second disc is led by Ryukyu Underground's "Mo Ashibi" [Jason Bentley Remix] and Les Négresses Vertes' "Sous le Soleil de Bodega (Bodega Di Moko)."

Incredibly, the quality of the Buddha Bar series is holding steady, which is good given that the quality level is about as good as it gets. I have all six Buddha Bar CDs (as well as a growing collection of other "chill out" CDs). On most of the Buddha Bar CD collections, I tend to favor the CD with with the uptempo beats.

The mystique of Paris's trendy Buddha-Bar exists largely due to its enthralling background music, as exemplified by the venue's highly successful series of compilations. The two discs of this fifth installment are filled with a diverse selection of artists from around the world.

This CD is a wonderful blend of music from several countries, mostly Asian or with an Asian flavor (hence Buddha bar), yielding my favorite background music. Many of the tracks feature familiar beats or songs in a form likely new to the listener. The flow of each CD, Dinner and Drink, captures a delightfully relaxed atmosphere and happy vibe rarely found with compilations of such variety. They truly make a meal in music form.

The third issue in a series from the infamous Buddha Bar in Paris, this two-CD set diverges from the "Dinner"/"Party" split that Buddha Bar owner Claude Challe had used on the series' first two installments. DJ Ravin, who is at the helm for this issue, splits it instead into two discs entitled "Dream" and "Joy."

Claude Challe's Buddha-Bar, Vol. II compilation has elements of Far Eastern spirituality, African song, European electronica, and Spanish spice. The first album, Buddha-Bar, is very mellow for the most part. Deepak Chopra and Demi Moore, far and away the most recognizable names on the album, do a spoken word ditty on love and self-worth.

The Buddha-Bar restaurants were born from Raymond Visan’s imagination. Greatly passionate about cinema, Visan envisaged the Buddha-Bar experience as something to be lived as if in a motion picture - carefully decorated down to the last detail with an immersive soundtrack, a bold scenario and famous actors: The keys to the concept and its success. The Buddha-Bar CD box set, The Ultimate Experience, offers 10 hours of Buddha-Bar music that take you on a journey to the heart of contemporary lounge and electronic music. Through their musical selections Ravin and Mario Chaviaras take you on a worldwide tour, from the wide open spaces of North America to the highlands of Asia and the deserts of Africa.

September 2016 will be the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Buddha-Bar Paris. The famous story began in September 1996, a few steps away from Place de la Concorde, when a gigantic Buddha shook up Paris nightlife. The outstanding place serving fusion cuisine coming straight from California and playing lounge, world and electronic music quickly turned into a Parisian institution - a true must-see venue where A-list celebrities enjoy the most fabulous parties in Paris. The George V Records music label release an anthology set to celebrate the amazing success story.
