Essence of Well-Being Review

by AllMusic

Bodyworkers will be thrilled by this three-disc set, which brings together cherished New Earth Records artists and some of their best healing work from the albums SHAMANIC HEALING by Kamal, REIKI: TOUCH OF LOVE by Anuvida and Nik Tyndall, and MONSOON POINT by Al Gromer Khan and Amelia Cuni.

On Kamal's best-selling album, earthy chants and synthesizer drones cavort with flutes that mimic exotic bird songs. Tribal percussion moves things along without disrupting the soothing quality of the sound. This aborigine-inspired trance music is an enlivening backdrop for conscious movement, meditation, relaxation, or the healing arts.

The follow-up album to the much-beloved REIKI: HEALING HANDS finds Nik Tyndall and Anuvida respectively playing synthesizer and kiboe (a harp-like instrument invented by Anuvida). They wrote these five ethereal tracks specifically to accompany a Reiki healing session; there is even a gentle chime at three-minute intervals to remind the Reiki practitioner to change hand positions. However, the flowing music also suits a yoga practice or any other meditative endeavor.

MONSOON POINT is a deeply relaxing meditation on timelessness that pairs Gromer Khan's ethereal synthesizer washes with Amelia Cuni's classical Indian vocals.
