Featured Track: No. 3 Rising Sun
The waves of a seemingly boundless ocean pound in a clear rhythm on the cliffs of a small island. The vastness of the sea, the endless blue horizon, warming rays of the sun, calm and relaxation, clarity and clearness of the senses: all of this we long for. It brings forth in us a deep sense of well-being: the feeling of unity in a hectic world.
This CD transports you to that world: to a deep and calm unity within yourself. Relax, listen, and let your thoughts meander: The New Flamenco music of the group “Luna Blanca” of the German guitarist Richard Hecks will transport you with pleasant new sounds from your everyday life to the “Island of the Guitars”.
The song “Rising Sun” appeared together with Nelly Furtado and Neneh Cherry on the compilation CD: “Café World Lounge” (Universal Music Australia, release date: Jan 17, 2009) and on the "Goa Chillout Zone, Vol. 1" (W.O.A Records, release date: Jan 25, 2008).
