CD Fusion 02: Whispers of the Mountain,: (Richard Kaal)
In the quest for a spiritual connection with nature, the evening sounds of a Balinese singer floating across the valley is a special moment.
Whispers of the Mountain tries to capture this moment and others for the power is in the spirit of the music given through Taksu.
This is an album written and
produced by Richard Kaal on Mt Batukaru, Tabanan, Bali.
The music is inspired by this spirit of the mountain and
the music of Bali.
