As one of Tibet?s foremost contemporary musicians, Nawang celebrates life each day through the creation of his very personal music, culminating in the release of his first recording, produced by Kitaro. On Karuna, Nawang makes full use of his newest innovation, the Universal Horn. It?s a combination of Tibetan long horn and Australian Aboriginal Didgeridoo. Combining Japanese Taiko drums, Tibetan long horns, cymbals, bells, Indian drums, South American rain sticks, flutes and Tibetan chanting, Nawang shares his experience with ancient sounds and the spirituality of Tibet.

"I have never been to Tibet (at least as of this writing), but having listened to this CD I can say that I have journeyed there in spirit. Karuna is the Sanskrit word for compassion and that is the essence of this music. Playing Tibetan flutes and various instruments from cultures outside of Tibet (African, Native American)Nawang Khechog creates a powerful yet serene aural experience, augmented with authentic nature sounds and, ocassionally, the chanting of Tibetan Monks. Synthesizers - played by Kitaro on a couple of tracks - do not intrude upon the "real" feel of this music. If my description raises flags of New Age cheesiness in your mind, relax - this is (to use the word again) real music with real heart. As this disc spins just close your eyes and I swear you will feel the cool breezes blowing down from the Himalayas to kiss your face."

"In my world, we do a lot of energy work without trying to fall into more popular trends within the New Age movement. Nawang Kechog, much like Nakai, exudes inspiration without having to force anything. He is already connected and channeling. This particular album can literally transport you to faraway lands whether you are on a massage table or in the bathtub. It is also the album that receives the greatest amount of comments from visitors. If you are looking for music 'from the source' that can 'take you away from it all,' this would be the album."
