Imagine you are in the midst of a Zen garden. Mist is floating around you and only the gentle sound of bamboo flute, harp and choir breaks the silence, reminding you of the moment. You feel relaxed and at complete peace within. This is the best way to put into words what are hearing.
First released in 2004, Blowing Zen is still one of Devakant's most popular albums. There is something special about the way it makes you feel when you listen to it. It is almost like being transcended into another world. The perfect mix of melody, ambiance & silence creates space within the music as one drifts off into another time and place...
Inspired by the Sound of Teachings of the Far East
Blowing Zen is inspired in both thought & spirit by Buddhist teachings. There are elements of Japanese, Tibetan and other musical styles from the Far East within the music. The Bamboo Flute leads the way, supported by Bansuri, Transverse Flute, Kyotaku, Keyboards, Harp, Koto, Zither and sections of majestic vocal choir. Best listened to from start to finish, each song simply forms a component in the overall journey.
The Perfect Soundscape for Meditating & Relaxing
We highly recommend using this music played quietly in the background when you meditate. It is also useful for activities like reiki, yoga, energy work, massage, or simply to help you relax after a busy day. This also lends itself well to being played in the background while you work or 'potter' around the house on a lazy Sunday morning.
"I discovered this music during my tai chi / qi gong class. Close your eyes and you are high up on top of a Japanese mountain at dawn, mists rising, smell of pine, deep silence. Spacious and grounded at the same time. This is a beautiful CD. Perfect for quiet, grounded movement...energy work, massage, yoga. Turn it on and the atmosphere will change." - Peggy M.
