For The Heart of Reiki, Andreas Mock expanded Merlin's Magic to include Heidrun Menzel and Thomas Hirt on flutes and Günther Luderer on violin. Mock is on keyboards and guitars. He has fashioned a successful career by creating music to accompany the healing art of Reiki. This deep and smooth soundscape comes as one long-form composition (of about 60 minutes) with several atmospheres and high energy within. The light touches and easy arrangements will appeal to listeners on a higher plane. This is symphonic synthesizer music at its best.

The second day of the Auroville Singing Festival Day 2, attended by a packed audience, saw a slight mellowing down of the tone. The performances were divided into categories which began with traditional songs from different regions. Then came the 'family' category which saw some heart-warming connections on stage, and followed by performances from the youth of Auroville. The choir knitted the last knots of this colorful tapestry of music and we said goodbye to two days of swaying and clapping along. Here you can listen to different members of the very large family of Auroville mingle on stage through music. For more info: https://www.facebook.com/communityculturalcolors?ref=hl

Andreas Vollenweider was one of the few musicians to gain superstar status as a "new age artist" back when the term was first used as a marketing category in the mid-'80s. After becoming proficient on guitar, flute, and other instruments, the young Vollenweider developed a passion for the harp, which he modified to suit his needs. Over the years, Vollenweider has managed to maintain his artistic integrity and vision despite increasing commercial success.

The Auroville Singing Festival 2015 was organized through Community Cultural Colors. The first day saw the Masters of Ceremony, Jeremy and Amara, engage with the audience by introducing the musicians and reading out some haunting translations of song lyrics. The music flowed, moving through differing genres and languages and carrying the audience through varying terrain with the performers. The last song was a beautiful ode to Led Zeppelin and saw the event end on a high note. It was particularly enjoyable to shift from Odiya folk music to groovy Jazz from the 1930s. The lights dimmed and brightened according to the moods and the general energy was relaxed and stimulating. Here you can listen to Tamil song flute, some American song guitar and a whole lot of other tunes from the first day. For more info: https://www.facebook.com/communityculturalcolors?ref=hl
