Overview

Yanni's 13th album, Ethnicity, explores its multi-cultural theme in classic Yanni fashion. Layering delicate vocals, exotic instrumental sounds, world beats, and the Greek idol's signature keyboard style, Yanni conjures an optimistic musical tapestry with a global reach. From the anthem-like "Rites of Passage" to the upbeat "For All Seasons" to the poignant "Almost a Whisper" the album moves through a variety of moods. Vocals are a prominent ingredient -- singing out full force ("The Promise"), adding an ethereal touch ("Written on the Wind"), or evoking primeval chant ("Rainmaker"). Colorful instruments, too, like the didgeridoo on "Rainmaker," add to the album's international feel. But, ultimately, it's Yanni's eloquently lyrical melodies that captivate most on this album in celebration of universal harmony.
