AllMusic Review by

This four-CD set has three advantages over other "relaxation" or "meditation" multi-disc collections. Four different artists gets an entire disc each to themselves, a nice way of sidestepping the "try this, try that" fragmentation of many collections. Second, the artists are to my knowledge first-timers, so the material is fresh rather than recycled. Finally, the set is priced low enough that even if you only enjoy half of the package (as in my case), you still come out ahead. (The CDs are also available individually.) The set consists of Erica Kundidzora Azim, Mbira Dreams (African "thumb piano" and vocals), G. S. Sachdev, Amar Sangit (Indian flute and percussion), Cesar Fornes Berlanga, Corazon Espanol (Spanish guitar and natural sounds), and Jorge Alfano, Noccan Kani (Meso-American flutes and percussion). See individual reviews for more details.
