Love's Gift: Harp Music for Healing & Meditation
- (Duplicated CD)
- Artist: Leela
- Format: CD
- Release Date:4/2/2009
This music was composed for meditation, yoga and the healing arts. Approximately one hour (58:46) in length, it is perfect for massage therapy and energetic healing, Hatha Yoga, meditation and pure relaxation. Leela is a Nada Yogini, tuning and uplifting the energies of the body, mind and spirit with her harp music. She is also an intuitive body-energy worker and a retired massage therapist. Leela does all the traditional harp stuff like weddings, elegant dinners, cigar tastings and dog funerals, but on Love's Gift, she allows her passionate heart to flow through the strings, weaving together colorful threads of improvisation and composition, inspired by her long-time practices of meditation and healing. Unconventional and yet traditional in her approach to Life, Yoga and Music, Leela is perfectly matched to her instrument, the Paraguayan Harp. The art of playing this beautiful instrument is taught in the old way,individually from teacher to student, rather than in the setting of a college or university. One such Maestro, Jorge Gurascier (d), delighted in passing along instruction in how to break all the rules, maneuver around the limitations of the instrument and perform awesome, dazzling acoustic special effects. "The last track of this album, Sweet Harp's Lullaby, expresses my wish to all for peace, love and joy through harp music- it is sort of the musical equivalent of a whipped cream and cherry topping decorating this sweet offering of harp music. It is my sincere wish that the listener may taste of this sweetness and follow it deep within where Love's Gift resides, unconditionally and forever." Leela.
