Parijat’s musical background includes a mix of formal and explorative training. He spent a period of time learning the classical fundamentals of guitar and mandolin, then moved to India where he learned to “think-outside-the-box” and develop a more nuanced signature sound. With Parijat’s second release for New Earth Records, he takes a sonically different but tonally similar approach to his composing. The music is less Asian influenced than BUDDHA GARDEN, instead favoring soft, pleasant new age music comprised of guitar, keyboards and piano. REIKI HEALING WAVES is similar to his former album in the mood it creates—the music is light and soothing and ideal for healing work. As a bonus for practitioners, Parijat includes chime sounds and regular intervals to signal hard position changes.
