This album, containing melodious instrumental music, sets an inspiring ambience to relax meditate, practice yoga or simply to traverse across the inner self. The three
extended-playing tracks in the album, have been specially composed to accompany and enjoy the transcendental state of mind. The music, based on carnatic ragas of India,
were created and rendered on veena by Nivedita ShivRaj.
The ancient multi-string instrument veena produces melodic curves, just like a gifted human voice, and is a perfect instrument to play enchanting and elaborate gamakams (musical curves).
