A truly global effort, Winds of Samsara is the dream of Wouter Kellerman and Ricky Kej, an unlikely but star matched collaborative duo. Drawing from disparate cultures, the pair has melted their creative influences into the strange and wonderful sonic gumbo contained within Winds of Samsara. The album speaks to themes of peace and positivity, spinning together forward-moving harmony, progressive composition, and technical prowess with a verve and passion never before attempted in the New Age/ World genre. Making this album has challenged us as artists to push borders aside and have the one common thread through the universal language of music. We ve recorded in L.A., Seattle, Melbourne, Johannesburg, Bangalore, Bulgaria, full orchestras on most of the tracks, choirs in Australia, India and the U.S., and we ve used instruments in unexpected ways such as a Dobra, pedal steel guitar and complete string sections playing in Classical Indian styles. The album s messages of world peace and positivity ring true from the core of the collaborative process and the authenticity of the talented musicians who transcended borders and cultural barriers. What bound us all together was the desire to create music that could help affect positive change in the world, and we hope people are moved by the end result. Quote Wouter Kellerman. The album was mastered by 3-time GRAMMY winner Gavin Lurssen (including 2001 Album of the Year for O, Brother Where Art Thou? and 2008 Album of the Year for Alison Krauss & Robert Plant s Raising Sand). A deluxe edition of Winds of Samsara will be released later this year and includes a 5.1 HD Surround Sound mix by GRAMMY -winner P.A. Deepak (2009 Best Sound Track Album Compilation from Best Picture Oscar Winner Slumdog Millionaire).
