In turns contemplative and drowsy, this album, subtitled The Musical Journey of a Tibetan Nomad, was previously released as Sounds of Inner Peace. Nawang Khechog here plays multiple wind instruments, most notably the Tibetan bamboo flute (a very large flute — maybe three feet or so), but also the didgeridoo (he spent some time in Australia), the Incan panpipes, and a silver flute. The music verges on new age at many times (he has been noted for his work with Kitaro), which can be either a plus or a minus, depending on the listener. For something with a thicker tone, perhaps some music for the shakuhachi from the Fuke Zen sect in Japan would be a good choice. Otherwise, this is a nice album of clear tones on pretty good compositions.
