Galway plays with his usual sensitivity, combining the fluid voice of his golden flute with Fujikake's lush synthesizer colorings to produce this lyrical and enchanting tribute to the Melodies of Japan. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats

    The most beautiful flute music in the world!

    So beautiful that words cannot describe the beauty of this album. It is not to be missed. The melodies are beautiful, enchanting, melodious, just touching. The music is relaxing, but not boring. Each song keeps you listening and stress just disappears as you become engulfed in the melodies of japan!
