Many people today realize that good health and relaxation go hand in hand. The growth of the relaxation music industry in the last 10 years has been remarkable. Healing of the body and mind can be facilitated by a calm environment, ritual, movement and music. Real Music has assembled a selection of healing tracks from their “best of” healing sounds. Musicians include pianist Kevin Kern, keyboardist Michael Hoppe, flautist Tim Wheater and the duo 2002. There are several tracks from harpist Hilary Stagg, including the all-favorite Pachelbel’s Canon. Excellent collection.
Trained as a classical musician, Buedi Siebert has traveled the world and connected with the music of Tibet on his way. This album was created for a multi-vision project, “Tibet Impressions”, in 1999-2000. The experience moved Buedi so much, he’s used the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra in his work and for this studio recording. It blends the voices of Tibetan monks and the Billafinger Madrigal Choir with bamboo flutes, clarinet, udu, frame drums, gongs, marimba and base guitars. An uplifting CD of ambient Tibetan music.
Fresh from two previous album successes with Sol Luna Tierra and Kiss the Earth, Johannes Linstead now has progressed to his third release. Guitarra del Fuego features flamenco/gypsy sounds with percussion back-up on several tracks. The album contains a number of faster-paced “nouveau flamenco” glory tracks and some beautifully tender, romantic pieces. Johannes is a celebrated and passionate player, expressing the joy of life in every track. Excellent album.
An album of just one single track of harmonious ambient music from Mark Ciaburri with the support of musicians Bruce Becvar on guitar, Daniel Paul on tablas, Ginny Morgan on harp and cello, Jazlyn Woods on oboe and John Zangrando on flutes. The musicians are accompanied by the Angels Choir of Maui with their gorgeous sound. This is one of those classic and beautiful albums of quality atmospheric music that will help you deal with stress and worry or maybe just relax you after a long and winding day.
