Radiant Voyages (Amina 2009)

Michael Ormiston & Candida Valentino            

Tibetan Singing Bowl Elemental Meditations


Radiant Voyages contains five original compositions using Tibetan Singing Bowls based on the five elements, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. They can be used as a meditation reflecting upon the nature of these elements and as a deep listening connecting us to the amazing sonic qualities that   Singing Bowls possess. Tibetan singing bowls ring with an ancient power that is a mystery to most of us. They have their roots in the animistic or shamanic religions of the Nepalese and Tibetan border areas of the Himalayas, where master craftspeople fashioned the bowls from five or seven precious metals.
