Instruments & Styles

Pete Namlook & Burhan Öçal – Sultan Osman

That turned out to be the most suitable disc – Sultan Osman, which is a very interesting symbiosis from different genres, where the advantage without a doubt can be given to ethnic and electronics. However, among other things, there is also some special mysticism in this album, especially when the texts are scanned in a monotonous voice under strange rhythms that seem to be approaching, then they are being deleted.… Read more

Brian Culbertson – Dreams

In the gentle lull of sleep, we re often enraptured in a vivid sequence of thoughts, images, and sensations. A lifelike realm where radiant colors, sounds, and illusions intersect, creating the most vibrant experience. This spring, prolific R&B/Jazz musician Brian Culbertson invites you to close your eyes, open your ears, and fall deep into a lush world of musical fantasy with his breathtaking thirteenth album Dreams. … Read more

Martian – Flying in Love

Overall this album has no lyrics and has a very relaxing atmosphere. The piano and rhythmic beat is a little overplayed, and in my honest opinion a few too many of its rehashes were made in this album. That being said, however, certain tracks here were stunning masterpieces of composed synthetic music, using a variety of synthetic instruments to create never before heard sounds that trigger deep emotions when heard. The fact that there are no lyrics means that emotions are universal, absolutely amazing album!… Read more

Orbis Mundi – Adia

Orbis Mundi – Adia escapes from the stylised, national illustration, listening to the massive loudspeakers of the large cars that contain middle-aged micro-chambers, trying to impress their dog’s surroundings, but it does not convince you of its authenticity. He basically lacks this thing that stays when everything else collapses. And this is the quintessence of art.… Read more

Existence – Mantras of the World (Margot Reisinger)

This album explores this essence of Mantra and prayer on a journey through the world. Om Mani Padme Hum (Buddhism), Gayatri Mantra (Hinduism), Sancta Maria (Christianism), Hevenu Shalom Aleichem (Judaism), Allah Hay (Islam) – familiar phrases performed in a new, deeply touching way that stay in the mind and in the heart, even when the CD has stopped playing long ago.… Read more

Thomas Barquee – Missa (2002)

Awesome album. Its powerful energy is due to the fact that each track unites two religious musical cultures – Western and Eastern, in particular the hymns of the Catholic church (16-17 cc) and the famous mantras of India and Tibet.… Read more

Ulla Pirttijarvi – Traditional Saami music

The music of this disc is not “yoik” in its pure form. These are beautiful ballads, performed in their native language, in the national style. Among the instruments accompanying her singing, of course, is the shaman’s tambourine of the Saami.… Read more

Phil Thornton – Initiation

Authentic and powerful, Initiation weaves the haunting voice of whales and birds into the strong, mellow Dreamworld of the didgeridoo. From the fascinating and earthy sounds of this most basic of natural instruments to the superb complexity of modern keyboards, we are enmeshed in a world of compelling imagination. This is a genuinely unforgettable venture deep into the realm of a spiritual initiation.… Read more

The greatest success was the collaboration of Phil Thornton with the Egyptian musician percussionist Hossam Ramzy. Their joint album “Immortal Egypt” released in 1998, won first place on the results of the awarding of annual awards by the respectable American magazine New Age Voice.… Read more
