THE RIVER is one of those exquisite meditation and healing albums that is so peaceful, yet inspiring. The music is both Western and Asian in style, yet the feel of the compositions is pure, clear and ever flowing. THE RIVER is scored for harps and the Japanese Bamboo Flute known as the SHAKUHACHI. The music was composed and recorded as a meditation.Paul Lloyd Warner visited a private Asian style garden at a home in Southern California. It was such a beautiful location with a small pond surrounded by rare sub-tropical trees and flowers. This CD re-creates that experience.
