Tibetan Horn

After working on the album 'Initiation' with Steven Cragg, I was inspired by the musical possibilities that were opening up. As we were both keen to try a full scale collaboration and he had acquired a Tibetan horn this became a natural starting point.

In the end the album was 2 years in the making! No stone was left unturned in finding the right path for the music to follow.

I have a particular passion for albums with a 'journey' theme and this album remains a firm favourite.

~ Original sleeve notes by Carmen Willcox ~

A kaleidescope of incredible musical invention that compels the listener along an inner and outer journey of spiritual awakening and attainment, across the 'roof of the world' - the Himalayan 'abode of the snows'.

From the primal initiations of Shamanic and Buddhist rites, be guided to the inaccessible summits, plateaus and glaciers of mountain Ashrams, following the ravines down to the sub-tropical jungles and holy lands of India.

An authentic, outstanding experience of pure artistry, insight and deep, universal harmony.
