Left me breathless!!!

This is the first that I ever bought from artist Kitaro...I have to say it left me breathless. He is a poet though music. Songs like "Theme from Silk road" and "shimmering Horizon", just to name a few . .. brillant and wonderful. If you like new age music, or atmospheric music...THIS IS A MUST!!! Worth the price.

great songs!

I always listen to this album when I get home from work.
It relax my mind.
