Yuval Ron - Ancient Wisdom & Modern Sounds for Health and Healing
Metta Mindfulness Music
This seven-CD box set may not be what you'd expect from musician-composer Yuval Ron, who is perhaps best know for his Yuval Ron Ensemble, which focuses on peace issues and interfaith dialogue though Middle-Eastern music flavors. And his musical political comedy West Bank Story.
Here he turns his sights toward meditational healing sounds, or perhaps soundscapes, with each CD providing a single 45-minute track to which you might mediate, receive a massage, or do whatever it is that people who aren't listening to raucous Balkan brass bands (like, yes, me) generally do. Each CD has its own flavor supplied by different instrumentation: bass, oud, and didgeridoo on "Earth"; Guzheng harp on "Water" ; bamboo flute on "Fire"; all accompanied by Ron's keyboards and electronics. And breathing sounds by co-Producer Richard Gold.
