Bansuri Dreams is a set of acoustic atmospheres from John Wubbenhorst. It is a crossover of three styles -- new age, world, and meditative/healing. The main effects come from -- well -- the bansuri flute. There are other instruments that enhance the tone: sitars, kodos, and percussion. The recording and mixing techniques and the natural sonority of the flute give this disc electronic timbre. The organic textures will appeal to fans of Hariprasad Chaurasia, Steve Gorn and John McLaughlin's Shakti.
