Parijat (classical guitar, electric sitar, piano, percussion, keyboards, and synth programming) takes the listener on a supremely relaxing voyage down The Healing Path, another excellent recording from New Earth Records. The artist has become one of the most consistently reliable in the New Age genre for soothing soundscapes ideally suited for massage, spa, and other contemplative exercises. Luxuriously indul¬gent in its cocoon-like ambience, the soothing melodies of the six tracks (each clocking in at 10 minutes exactly) envelop the listener in waves of warmth and serenity. “Traveling East” introduces some world-beat influences but not in a distracting way.
