The shehnai, an Indian classical wind instrument similar to an oboe, has the rich sound of bagpipes, but with more nuances. Shehnai music is known for its unique quality of producing an atmosphere of purity and sacredness and is often used in India during auspicious ceremonies. Like most of the Indian classical instruments, shehnai music replicates sounds from the spiritual planes and is said to be very healing to body, mind, and spirit. The ragas on this album are uplifting and joyful, as well as soothing to the heart and soul.
