Journey: Calm 4
Meditation and Relaxation music in popular culture are mainly connected with Yoga and the Far East traditions. However, there is another great School of Meditation: the spiritual experience of the Eastern Christian (Orthodox) Church. The soothing and melodic music of the Balkan Traditional songs are some of the fruits of this ancient hesychastic (calming oneself) tradition. Now Calm takes a step further: taking the contemplative Eastern European Roots as it's basis, it creates & develops a very subtle Mediterranean Meditation Music, as opposed to New Age. Music for concentration and inner search in essence, it creates airy, weightless soundscapes. Not at all wishy-washy, but rather strong but unimposed compositions which take your mind and heart and lead them to a sort of freedom that only warm and gentle music could create. It features ethnic string instruments, especially the Tamboura - an instrument known to be inductive to meditation. Smooth and tranquil, wrapped in sunshine, Calm offers simple, intuitive music for contemplation.
