World Music Video – Indian Raga Inspired Instrumental – ‘The Marketplace’

I am in love with Indian ragas and the timeless, unique colours and the powerful thread of sound that they create. It’s also ancient and somehow taps into a deep part of us that is looking for reunification with our higher, more connected selves.

Here I explore what it might feel like to be in a bustling marketplace with all the smells and sounds that come with it. I use the power of contemporary elements like keyboards and subtle beats to complement the traditional Indian inspired music.

This song is from the album ‘Travelling Light’ and is currently only available as part of The Ultimate Yoga Music Bundle.

INSTRUMENTS:

  • Tablas and Dholak – traditional Indian percussion
  • Tambura – the thin high drone sound
  • Strings – To thicken out the drone
  • Vibraphone – Electric keyboard with bells
  • Vocals (with heavy autotune) – Inspired by Sheila Chandra (look her up she’s amazing)
  • Beats – Subtle drum patterns to make it gently danceable

Macchu Picchu Music Video in 4K Ultra HD with Instrumental “Cloud Forest”

Macchu Picchi Music VideoThis Macchu Picchu music video was created by my friend Milosh on his YouTube channel, Amazing Places on our Planet.

He was kind enough to ask me to create some music for this epic video showing this incredible site in Peru. It’s an awe-inspiring place and one that you need to climb up to see which makes it a kind of achievement as well.

I wanted the music to have some of the feel and tone of the area while still being an original theme that feels universal in its appeal.

Angels of Peace – Shalom Alacheim

The lyrics of this song are from a traditional Hebrew song that calls in Shabbat often as the family is around the table for food. It is believed to come from the 17th century and is inspired by a Rabbi Yehuda that told the story of how we are accompanied on our life journey by two angels, one good the other evil.

The calling of the right one seems to depend on whether the food is prepared and the candles are lit in preparation for the passing. In essence, Order vs Chaos and the value we put in the family and how it can determine the balance of our lives.

The song is from the album Akash Vani.

INSTRUMENTS:

  • Electric Guitar – Herrin
  • Keyboards – Herrin
  • Vocals – Isa Pfluger
  • Violin – Yan Van Dyke
