This ethno-ambient hour-long album uses shamanic world percussion on top of a tapestry of shakuhachi and bansuri flutes, electric guitars, bass, and keyboards to create an immersive and delightful sonic experience. While these compositions were designed for meditation, their tempos are also suitable for a yoga practice.
