The Emerald Way
Label: Real Music
For a follow-up to This Moment Now, awarded Best New Age Album of the Year in 2004 by the Coalition of Visionary Retailers, 2002 turn to the ancient Hindu text known as Mahabharata for inspiration. Randy and Pamela Copus strike gold yet again; The Emerald Way is a shining collection of ambient soundscapes, celestial prayers and angelic atmospheres. Taken as a whole, the tracks are a touching meditation upon the tale of Savitri and Satyavan, one of Sanskrit's great love stories -- and there are many.
