Raphael & Shakya
As in a nomadic journey, Raphael & Shakya's talent has been influenced by a rich array of musical cultures. In this poetic and heartfelt release they achieved a masterful balance, seamlessly weaving together Eastern and new age music, classical, Celtic and jazz. Harp, cello, flute, strings and ethnic percussions shine together like different facets of a jewel while the presence of Jai Uttal on dotar and Praful on soprano sax highlight its luminescence.
The music has a spacious, warm and gentle pace, making it ideal for unwinding and relaxed listening as well as massage and healing practices or whenever one wants to create a serene yet deep environment.
