New age master multi-instrumentalist Hans Christian has a spiritually-powerful new album, NANDA DEVI, named after the tall, sacred peak in India, and the music is an ode to this special place on our planet. His main instrument is cello, but he also plays a large group of real ethnic world music instruments such as sitara, sarangi, nyckelharpa, dhilruba, swaramandala, psaltery, bamboo flute, udu, tampura, frame drums, Tibetan bowls and many more.
This gentle world-fusion recording captures the pristine loveliness and majestic grandeur of the world’s highest mountains in the region of Northern India and Tibet. Nanda Devi, as one of the tallest peaks in the world, symbolizes the beauty of nature, spiritual power and a place of quiet serenity outside the reach of modern civilization (no one is allowed on the mountain). Hans Christian takes us on a musical journey to this mountain, but the music can also serve as a tribute to all of nature and any trip we take into the wilderness.
In addition to his successful solo career, Christian has been a sought-after studio session musician (Robbie Robertson, Sparks, members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Amoeba, Vas, Krishna Das, Robert Rich), a recording engineer and producer (Jai Uttal, Ancient Future, Silvia Nakkach), co-founder of the popular world-music group RASA with Sanskrit-bhajans vocalist Kim Waters, and a member of the touring GuruGanesha Band.
Now with his NANDA DEVI album, Hans Christian shows he is in the top echelon of new age and world-fusion musicians creating magical, mystical, mesmerizing contemporary music that hints at ancient traditions and ancestral feelings. Experience the soul-caressing music of Hans Christian. Seek it out.
