One of the greatest albums I've Heard
This is one of the greatest albums I've heard. And I like (or liked at different times) a lot - from Andrea Bocelli to AC/DC to Deep Purple to to Rihanna to Tiesto to Shpongle).
Very simplistic, very "basic" - only background "buzzing" and flute/violin/both, but one more instrument would spoil it. Musicians are real virtuoso, the tune gently floats, creating unique atmosphere great for relaxing, sleeping or simply as background. I don't know whether they improvise or it is the script, but the patterns morph as composition progresses, feels very natural.
Definitely worth the money.
What is also good - you can buy it in DRM-free MP4 format - reward the musician without wasting plastic (CD).
The music, the cover all well done
Warm organic pure sounds that are so rare in todays over synth derived music. Anyone interested in eastern practice and philosophy will enjoy this very much, not to mention its purpose to help one relax.
My favorite track is Saraswati Raga and Sarasangi-Relaxing into the Breath, but all tracks are good. The music is played with feeling and depth, again something missing in so called relaxation music today which is synth derived. A particular surprise was the interpretation of the violin player, soulful but powerful and soothing at the same time. You can feel the passion and the dedication in the playing. I look forward to recordings like this in the near future.
Fantastic for Chill time and Yoga
My yoga teacher played it in my Vinyasa Folw class and I was blown away. My entire body was moving through the music like never before. It was a liberating experience. Thank You!
Good concept, bad execution
Creating soft instrumentals for relaxation is a good concept that this album is based on. The flute player does touch us deeply. However, this album has many drawbacks which could have been avoided: there is too much synth / echo in some tracks (in fact, synth could have been fully avoided, without losing the impact), some places flute and violin do not blend well - flute is very soft but the violin is too exuberant. Some ragas seem to end too soon, creating a feeling a discomforting feeling of "dropping off the cliff". Suggestion: how about making another relaxation album just with the flute, probably with longer tracks?
Simplicity and Elegance
By MD Contentment
Sometimes less is more and I love how this recording does not have any percussions and table. Just the pure, uplifting vibration of the flute and violin. I laid down and listened to this and I immediately relaxed. Bravo!
Destined to be A CLASSIC
By Julie Torres Alonso
This is destined to become a classic. I love the production value of the project, while preserving the integrity and beauty of Indian music. The combination of flute and violin is unorthodox but exiting, calming and it somehow works. Looking forward to their working together again and producing more exiting content. Congratulations!
Exiting and Peaceful
By Ms Sue Pritchard
I love when people get out of their comfort zones and produces something classical but also unique at the same time. I find the combination of flute and violin without any percussion very interesting and effective. The music reminds me of my time in India but at the same time has a subtle but wonderful western production value. Calming and beautiful. Congrats!
Doesn't grow on me
This album appeared to be quite soothing in the first few listens but started appearing incomplete over a period of time. I prefer outright Indian classical music over these short pieces. Some great ragas I find good for relaxation are: Yaman, Bhoopali, Ahir Bhairav, Kedar, Puriya Dhanashree, Malkauns, Manjh Khamaj, Pahadi, Jog.
A descent instrumental album.
