Be the Light
An alluring compilation of some of Shastro’s most mystical music, featuring the sounds that through the years became his trademark, like his Spanish guitar, ethnic flutes and hypnotic vocals. Infused by the many years of meditation and search for the divine, this music will lead you on a magical journey from the depth of your Being to the stars. Over an hour of music to create a deep, relaxed and harmonious ambiance.
"Culled from five previous releases of ace multi-instrumentalist Shastro (guitar, flute, kora, clarinet, percussion, santoor, synth programming), these nine tracks represent (per the liner notes) "…some of Shastro's most mystical music." I would add that it also amply demonstrates his versatility at and talent for melding New Age and world beat music in a variety of ways, displaying an affinity for numerous influences, including Mediterranean, Indian, Middle Eastern, and Native American, as well as some pop/folk flavors sprinkled here and there which only adds to the accessibility quotient. All but one song feature pleasantly languid rhythms, some with a strong sensual allure."
