Surfing the Himalayas, A Musical Inspiration... features the fine works of Zazen (Enlightenment, Canyons of Light) and Joaquin Lievano (Ecologie). This is the music that accompanies the book Surfing the Himalayas about an American snowboarder who travels to the Himalayas seeking the ultimate rush - but "surfs" into an encounter that frees his mind and challenges his soul. The music is very enlightening, restful, yet contemplative. I haven't read the book yet, but the music has inspired me to go get it.
Ecologie is Joaquin Lievano's first solo album and is truly a must for guitar lovers. A combination of acoustic and light electric guitar pieces with a blend of jazz, rock, New Age and Latin. Full of emotion, Ecologie is one of those CDs that you never tire of and just keeps getting better and better every time you play it.
