Love it
This is great music, once you play it you will have to have it playing at all times...It’s soothing, mysterious and transcending. Don’t miss out take a shot of Sahara and throw your bottle of Zanex out.

A Masterpiece of Musical Art
From the opening track "Abyssinian Autumn", prepare to be taken on a journey of the mind, spirit and the heart.

As I listened to this fantastic album I had visions of an ancient past along with an exploration of exotic cultures, peoples and lands. Not to mention the great desert, Sahara.

Along with most of the songs that evoke the wonder and essence of North Africa, there are a few songs that give off a hautning and beautifully sorrowful vibe, such as "The Sacrifice of Queen Elissa" and "Tears of Beauty, Cries of Sorrow". The album concludes on a fun uplifting note with "Mur-akush". A perfect ending to top off this extraordinary experience.

If I could only describe Spirits in Ambience "Sahara", in a few words, I'd use...sensory, imaginative and addictive! I have listened to it non-stop whenever I get the chance, ever since I have gotten it.

I highly reccomend fans of ambient music, and to fans of good music in general, to pick up this album. It is definately worth it! Get the album, turn down the lights, relax and be inspired by the scenarios in your mind and the feelings in your heart and soul created by this masterpiece of musical art.

Two Hundred Miles to Dakar
WOW! what an intro. Pure gold to the ears and then onto the mind. Sit or recline comfortably; hit 'play' The man from Uncle is alive and treating us to real music.


Sahara...Arabian heartbeat!
Sahara ...by far the best work of Spirits in Ambience.This whole album is amazing... straight to the heart !! At this very moment thousand of words are spinning round and round .I would like to be able to find the right words through which all these thoughts make their way .Really you make an awesome work ...you have excelled yourself with this album ...
At least for me it's less dark than others but more sensual,mysterious and spiritual...these suggestive and sensual arabian textures make it very mystic .It's like an introspective travel to our deep within . The first song is just the open door to the exotic world where you will be carried alone by a tide of pleasant sensations and a scent of Arabian Musk ...just a delight of senses..To listen to " Abyssinian Autumn " is like you touched a smooth skin ...like a warm dawn painted an ocher-colored scene while in a lazy mood the Egyptian cat stretches itself getting ready to adopt its sphinx presence.

The Arabian music is as a heartbeat...just having a look at the arabian art makes you summerge in a mysteryous ,exotic and introspective world where the inside is more important than the exterior .You can picture what you may see inside a Gothic church but after seeing the facade of Alhambra,you wouldn't be able to predict what it lies hidden from inside .What I mean "Sahara" is like the mysterious Alhambra...you only need to let your mind and senses explore every corner hidden behind all these sensual ,exotic,and warm sounds full of north African textures" ..."Two Hundred miles to Dakar " ,"Makeda ""The Great Sand Sea" ,"Sahara","Sacrifice of Queen Elisa"
"Salome","Lament de mon coeur" ...only one word springs to my mind ...breathtaking .These sounds remember me of the movie "The English Patient"...to listen to them is as if you were going by this old airplane...feeling the warm wind on your face...glanceing down the winding sand dunes ...I only need to take my time to go through this album and find out all those secrets that lie hidden...
