Tapping into the richness of Tibets meditation tradition, Nawang Khechog has created his most relaxing album yet - wholly focused on helping you experience inner stillness. On Tibetan Meditation Music, Nawang combines Tibetan spiritual chants with his own masterful flute compositions. The result is a soothing blend that has been embraced by many Tibetan and Korean monks, nuns, and people around the world from all walks of life - to enhance a meditative practice, or just to find a refreshing moment of pure serenity. In a unique approach on this recording, Nawang deemphasizes rhythm and uses subtle accents of vocals, bells, percussion, and Western classical instruments to enhance the calming and spacious sound of his meditative flute and Tibetan spiritual chants.
Tibetan Meditation Music has a timeless quality that evokes the feeling of sitting on a Himalayan mountain, gazing into the infinite space with natural freedom and eternal peace. This is the perfect musical accompaniment for meditation, yoga, taichi, healing - and complete relaxation.
Born in Tibet, Nawang Khechog spent his earliest years as the child of nomads. In his boyhood he first learned to play the bamboo flute, an ancient instrument popular in rural villages throughout Tibet. After the brutal subjugation of Tibet by Chinese Communists in 1949, Nawang and his family escaped to India. There he studied meditation and Buddhist philosophy, a path he followed as a monk for eleven years - four of them as a hermit.
