chinmaya dunster

 
chinmaya dunster Chinmaya was born in Kent, England in 1954.  His father was an accomplished artist who made his living renovating old houses and Chinmaya grew up in a rambling sixteenth-century farmhouse set amid apple orchards, wheat fields, woods and streams.

After attending Art College, Chinmaya traveled through Afghanistan to India.  There he heard a performance by the world-famous sarodist Amjad Ali Khan and instantly fell in love with the sarod (a nineteen-stringed, banjo-like Indian classical instrument.)  Three years later, while teaching art at a school in London, he became a student of Amjad Ali Khan's leading disciple.  Chinmaya dedicated the next thirteen years to the study of Indian classical music on the sarod, both in London and at the Osho Commune in Pune, India.

deuter

 
deuter An internationally acclaimed musician/composer, Deuter has become known as a pioneer, combining contemporary and traditional musical forms.  He has created music that is at once meditative and inspiring.

A product of both  East and West, he was born in 1945, in a small village of post–war Germany.  As a child, he learned flute and taught himself guitar and harmonica.  As a young adult, he worked as a graphic designer and newspaper columnist in Munich, but the musical drive within him persisted.  Eckart Rahn, a young record producer at that time, recognized Deuter’s talents, and in 1971 released Deuter’s first recording, D, on the then fledgling Kuckuck label.

Deuter began to go into the mountains to record birds, water and wind to accompany his music.  He was one of the first artists to do so, and his deep relationship with nature persists to this day.  He also began his spiritual search, spending much of his time at the Osho ashram in Poona, India.  Deuter was also one of the first artists to blend that Eastern influence into his music.  He did that blending in such a gentle fashion that it never jarred Western ears, unaccustomed to Eastern rhythms and tonalities.

Today, he lives in New Mexico, deep in a forest he shares with birds, deer, roadrunners, snakes and coyotes.  He keeps bees, crafts zen-like wood furniture, and continues to experiment with instruments from all over the world: Shakuhachi flutes, sitars, tablas, santoors, a Turkish sasz, and a Persian tar; Chimes, bowls and Tibetan bells and of course, keyboards, guitars, and synthesizers.

kamal

 
kamal As a classical guitarist studying at the Robert Schuhmann Conservatory in Dusseldorf, Germany, Kamal soon felt constricted by the limitations of classical music.  He took up bass guitar and played in a variety of jazz and rock bands, always aware that he had yet to develop his unique style and sound.

After years of band work, in 1984 Kamal discovered synthesisers and sequencers.  His experiments excited him as he realized that he could develop complex instrumentation and arrangements using this new technology.  The first album created like that, Silhouette, was published with Nightingale Records and became an instant "New Age Classic."  The music that followed this success, like all innovative art forms, is difficult to categorize.  It is both dynamic and soothing, celebrative and reflective.

It can however be divided into two broad styles.  One is ranging from slow instrumental ballads to more lively, celebrating moods and world music.  Most arrangements are with drums and percussion and are strongly melody oriented.   The other style is more quiet and meditative. It creates an atmosphere of relaxation and healing and has become well known with healers and therapists.

parijat

 
parijat At ten years old, German born Parijat began music school to play the guitar.  He was told that his fingers were too small and that he would be more suited for the mandolin.  So, he played mandolin until the age of fourteen when he bought his first guitar and began taking serious classical guitar lessons. 

The technical nature and complicated sophistication of his training began to frustrate him because he felt the pressure to become a virtuoso made the music lose its spontaneity.  Many years later on a spiritual quest in India, Parijat began to find his joy and creativity in playing again and realized that the true spirit and nature of his creativity came from a more simple, innocent place.

Parijat continues to create his music out of this simple joy and says that, “when I play out of the moment, I have the feeling that everything works and that everything is all right.”
