Kalacakra was a 1970s German psychedelic underground band formed by the duo Claus Rauschenbach and Heinz Martin. Their sound carried a heavily eastern influence, with a lot of flute, sitar and percussions, and their style has been described as "mantric acid folk." "Kalacakra" refers to a Tibetan Buddhist concept of "time-cycles." The band released its only album, Crawling To Lhasa, in 1972. They recorded in German.
The album was re-released on CD in 2001 by Garden of Delights, featuring two bonus tracks absent from the 1972 release.
