Hosianna Mantra is the third album by German band Popol Vuh. It was originally released in 1972 on the German record label Pilz. The album saw the band blend elements of Western classical music, Asian music, and space rock.[1] For the release, bandleader Florian Fricke abandoned electronic synthesizers and instead employed acoustic instruments such as piano, oboe, and tambura. Prominently featured are Korean vocalist Djong Yun and electric guitarist Conny Veit.
Hosianna Mantra has garnered acclaim from English-language publications in recent years. Writing for The Sydney Morning Herald, Chris Johnston praised it as "bold, beautiful, and lying at the outer reaches even of krautrock, the German indie music of the 1970s." Wilson Neate of AllMusic remarked that the album has a "timeless, healing quality" that is "far removed from the everyday world and yet at one with it." Raul Stanciu of Sputnikmusic called the work "an overlooked masterpiece", and Gary Bearman of Perfect Sound Forever likewise described it as "majestic – a revelation, an epiphany, a high point in the history of music."
