THE SPIRITUAL HAVEN ALBUM
Relaxing ethnic instruments and rhythms.
Blended with modern sounds.
A spiritual journey.
Sounds from inside Spiritual Haven
Spiritual Haven is fused with a variety of sounds. The foundation is based on Western acoustic instruments — piano, oboe, bassoon, guitar, viola, cello and French horn. These are augmented by ancient instrumentation from around the world — duduk, guzheng, grand marimba, koto, oud, krin and ethnic frame drums.
Outstanding reviews and honored distinctions.
The Journey Inside Spiritual Haven
One of my goals was to create a story for my listeners, so as they go through the songs they travel a path, and in the end they find themselves in a place that is far different from where they began.
