AllMusic Review by

Asia is a thoughtful blend of the new and old, from musicians representing each major Eastern tradition, with the music of India, Japan, China and Tibet. Indian sitar, Chinese cheng and Japanese koto, as ancient as the cultures themselves, are heard side-by-side with contemporary Asian music and works that combine traditional Oriental sounds with electronic instruments and processing. These selections span the rich catalog of Celestial Harmonies -- you'll hear David Parsons, Paul Horn, Stomu Yamashta and Terry Riley as well as Sunazaki, Koga, Yas-Kaz, Asiabeat and the Monks of The Dip Tse Chok Ling Monastery.
