Tao of Healing is an "exquisite collaboration between sound healing pioneer Dean Evenson and Chinese gugin master Li Xiangting." (A gugin is a seven-stringed zither.) These like-minded spirits join their musical healing powers to create a joyous new age masterpiece. The atmospheres and sound design are largely acoustic. The very subtle synth adds an aura to the set. Evenson's flute goes to a higher plane and takes listeners along for the ride. Xiangting's zither is mesmerizing; it has qualities of a sitar with a much broader range. Scott Huckabay contributes a gentle guitar to the proceedings. This is great alternative minimalism from two musical wizards. It essential holistic new age music. This CD will appeal to fans of Steven Halpern, Lisa Lynne, Constance Demby, and Tingstad & Rumbel.
