This album is a selection of songs by Anugama that were chosen to enhance relaxation. At 74 minutes long, this stout CD makes use of classical guitar, flamenco guitar, steelstring guitar, Hawaiian slide guitar, recorder flute, electronic flutes, traverse flute, native American flutes, shakuhaji flute, keyboards and native American drums. The songs vary quite a bit in sound & style, so it's never boring. Yet it's always relaxing. I'm a massage therapist, and this is one of my favorite CD's to use in the office.

This is a wonderful collection of exotic and other worldly instrumentals which seems to take you on a meditative journey to other lands and who knows where! I use it alot while teaching yoga. Seems to fit that blend of slow movement, breathwork, and meditation that my students need.

My first Anagama CD The Lightness of Being was an excellent introduction to this soothing music. I have since purchased several other albums and find each one to be better than the last.

Listening to this album is pure pleasure, a journey to a heavenly place far from the maddening rush of Western society. Paradise in a small plastic disc. A collection of instrumental compositions written specifically for relaxation or meditation, all performed by Werner Hagen better known as Anugama , a superbly talented instrumentalist who plays guitar, keyboard, synthesizer, recorder, flute, slide guitar, and hand drums. The rear cover liner notes say he is "magically talented" and that is not hyperbole. Don't overlook or procratinate buying this or other albums by Anugama. The price you pay is tiny compared to the joy you will receive.

I ask myself how I neglected listening to such a talented musician who has released at least 12 albums for the Nightingale label in Germany which has an office in Tucson AZ.

Musicians and audiophiles who desire specific information, will be impressed to learn that Werner plays classical guitar built by Joaquin Garcia of Valencia, Spain; Flamenco guitar by Kenny Hill of the United States; steelstring guitar by James Godall of Hawaii; Hawaiian slide guitar by National; electronic flute by Akai; silver flute by Gemeinhardt; Native American flutes by Larry Spieler; Shakuhacki flute by Ken La Cosse; Recorder flute by Moek and Mollenhauer; and Native American Indian drums by Joe Roberts. Also, he plays various Roland and Korg synthesizers plus variouus Lexicon and Roland effects keyboards.

If you seek a sanctuary then this is a great album. Metalheads need not bother.

beautiful relaxing music to sleep to. maybe some night I'll have insomnia, and be able to listen to the whole record, but when I put it on as I head off to sleep, I hear maybe 1 or 3 songs... then drift off to la la land. This is good, that's why I bought it!

This piece is gorgeous. I first heard it at a museum, and asked the receptionist what they were playing. Thus, my introduction to Anugama. This would be great for at home or at a business--e.g., spa, salon or any other environment where relaxation is the objective.

This is my forth CD by Anugama. I love this one the most. While I appreciate the long lenth of the tracks on the Shamanic cd's, this beautiful mix of music can not be beat.

I carry alot of stress in my shoulders, thus I get massages a few times a month. I have started bringing this cd in with me and asking they play this rather than the spa's regular music. Its THAT wonderful.

I love this CD. I love the space it creates, which is transcendant, peaceful, cosmic and moving. Its a space we all would want if we knew about it, and its as simple as playing this CD by Anugama. I highly recommend it to you who are seeking an alternative type of music that can stir the deepest parts of our soul.
