Asia Music

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Asia is a thoughtful blend of the new and old, from musicians representing each major Eastern tradition, with the music of India, Japan, China and Tibet. Indian sitar, Chinese cheng and Japanese koto, as ancient as the cultures themselves, are heard side-by-side with contemporary Asian music and works that combine traditional Oriental sounds with electronic instruments and processing. These selections span the rich catalog of Celestial Harmonies -- you'll hear David Parsons, Paul Horn, Stomu Yamashta and Terry Riley as well as Sunazaki, Koga, Yas-Kaz, Asiabeat and the Monks of The Dip Tse Chok Ling Monastery. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats

    mystical and inspiring

    you might be inclined to think that two discs of eclectic asian music is one disc too many but I assure you this is not the case. The selection is seamless and timeless and only leaves you wishing for more. A wonderful introduction to the classical musical styles of asia.
