Music As Medicine CD
Like a master calligrapher, Tibetan flutist Nawang Khechog deploys his flute with an economy of line and texture. On Music As Medicine, he sets his flute up in gentle duets with Nakai and violinist Sandra Wong. Nawang and Nakai have been working together for years and their rapport is a study in nuance as they intertwine lines and play with space on “Harmony in Balance” and “Zen Blues.” Music as Medicine is destined for your neighborhood yoga and massage studios, but listen a little deeper. There’s more here than soothing sounds and gentle ministrations. In a more innocent manner, Khechog is sculpting a profound psychological landscape similar to those of Stephan Micus and Meredith Monk. Like those artists, he has a sound that cuts directly to the source. –John Diliberto
Two Grammy Nominees and Internationally renowned flutists offer a gift of healing music to the world!
Ancient Tibetan teachings tell us that merely seeing an image of the Medicine Buddha or even hearing his name holds the power to heal. Now, acclaimed muscian and former Buddhist monk, Nawang Khechog shares the blessings of this potent deity on his new recording, Music As Medicine. Here, he is joined by premier native American musician R. Carlos Nakai to create a cross-cultural “apothecary” of soothing melodies and curative chants to infuse this universal healing energy within you.

Nawang Khecog and R. Carlos Nakai offer eleven original songs created from ancient flute, ritual chants, angelic voices, and sounds highlighted by marimba, drums, cello, and violin, to summon the power of healing and send a compassionate call to humanity for peace.
