Been listening a lot to this lately:

https://youtu.be/z6BFNHX4FRc?t=973

Supposedly it's a "very rare archive record of Hindustani saint Shree Haidakhan Mahavatar Babaji made by officiary [sic] of Soviet Embrace [sic] in India." There's also a ton of stuff on YouTube sung by the guy's followers in the 70's and 80's, some of it a tad too fruity for my tastes but some of it almost horrifyingly catchy. Kinda hypnotising.

So anyway yeah whatcha got in terms of good non-Western devotional music, i.e. chanting and the like?

I already know Phurpa by the way, so need to mention 'em. Wink

I'd say a really obvious (although Western) entry would be Alice Coltrane - she did some amazing records on Impulse, and recently there was a 2xLP of her Ashram recordings - I love her 70's work with Pharaoh Sanders and the rest of the free jazz lads and would suggest those, but I also give this my highest possible endorsement:

I'd also put Don Cherry out there, especially Organic Music Society, Orient, Blue Lake, etc. That dude was out there.....

I've never really found anything of interest in Indian classical music, although I'm Indian myself, it's a little too exotic and out-there even for me.
Here's a little sample, sounds like noise to me.

Interesting, I have listening to some Indian music for more than a month or so, since I began to study Hinduism recently, but what exactly do you mean as non-Western devotional music?, does things like Gregorian chanting counts as well?

My go-tos for this sort of thing are Phurpa (Tibetan Bon ritual music) and more or less anything from the Canary Records canon, in particular their Southeast Asian and Usted Abdul Karim Khan releases.

Phurpa: https://phurpa.bandcamp.com/

Canary Records: https://canary-records.bandcamp.com/

Ustad Abdul Karim Khan: https://canary-records.bandcamp.com/album/ustad-abdul-karim-khan-1934-1935

Southeast Asian music: https://canary-records.bandcamp.com/album/deep-shadow-musics-of-indochina-indonesia-1920s-40s

Also, this record of East African ritual music is top-notch:

I was on a Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan kick for a while. Sufi devotional music, hypnotizing at times.
