With orchestrations to match the majesty of the spectacular Olympic National Park, Mars Lasar's musical panoramas sweep across glacial valleys, through lyrical alpine meadows, and into the secret shaded worlds of the moss-draped Northwest rainforest. The music moves effortlessly from grand, inspired vistas to details of delicate beauty. It celebrates the area’s earliest Native American settlers and, earlier still, the primal forces that originally shaped this ice-hewn land. This is the finest album yet from Lasar, whose heroic melodies were used for the televised 1992 Olympic Games in Albertville, France.
Lush and bountiful, the sacred pulse of the earth resounds richly with gentle rhythms and melodies played by Mike Hamilton on his acoustic guitar, Richard Hardy on a variety of flutes and, of course, Grammy-nominated Peter Kater on piano.
With Richard Hardy’s bamboo and silver flutes and Grammy-nominated Paul McCandless playing penny whistles, oboe, bass clarinet and soprano saxophone. Patient, poignant and very present, this music was created for our times of need and our times of expansion and relaxation. Let it carry you home.
Music to ease stress away and promote peace of mind. Ideal for yoga, meditation, healing. whenever the attention is directed inward toward that dynamic place of stillness.
