For this late 1980s recording, Australian composer Kamal incorporates not only his trademark array of keyboards, but also a cornucopia of guitar and percussion effects. Also, on certain tracks, listeners will notice the use of animal sounds such as crickets and fluttering birds. This is used primarily on "All the Cuckoos Dancing in the Mango Trees." This dreamy composition overflows with cascading keyboards and pastoral nature effects. This piece is also marked by a soft drum backbeat and keyboard simulated double bass.Other compositions such as "The Wind and the Sea" and "Monsoon Over Babaluma" are entrancing works that feature, not surprisingly, water and wind effects. The latter begins with thunder, rain, and distant keyboard rumbles. A bleak offering, this piece evokes the harshness of a storm. Yet, it ultimately illuminates the splendor of nature (even when nature is at its most turbulent). Indeed, BLUE DAWN is a meditation on the earth itself. This album brings to life the magnificence of this planet and encourages listeners to reconnect with their terrestrial roots.
Travelling through Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia, movies, the Internet, TV, friends, teachers, Gurus, madmen and women: it's all like the mysterious weaving of countless roads that merge inside of me. Something resonates, and is expressed in sound: a journey on the 'Mystery Road'!
Multi-instrumentalist Kamal has been on the New Age scene for more than a decade. He has catalogue-sales of 300,000 to his credit and last year won Australia's coveted 'Dolphin Award' for excellence in music. He also won the American NAV Music Award. A critic reviewing Kamal's music says: "This is a gentle way of escape, as Kamal insinuates us into his 'Enchanted Worlds' where nothing is threatened, and sound becomes an older world, before man screwed up the lot." Wonderful music for the natural healing of Universal Life Force Energy.
Healing songs of these gentle giants of the deep echo throughout this newest release from Kamal. The musician blends the sounds of whales with flute and soft synthesizer to create an atmosphere supportive of the healing energies of reiki.
