a soothing soundtrack to accompany your bodywork exploration? SoundPath,
with its rising and falling vocals and chimes, puts you on the crest
of a tranquil wave. Naaz Hosseini's voice slips from a serene hum
to a full-throated wail to a sweet high-pitched lilt, flavored by
her roots in Armenia and Persia. Bill Ruyle's marimba sounds like
pebbles in a clear running brook, and his dulcimer is as delicate
as lace. Together they connect you with your own breathing and with
the ebb and flow of nature. Picture yourself swaying in a hammock
or riding a camel on the dunes.

music falls into the New Age category, but it doesn't have the slick
production values that often make such CDs annoying. You can hear
each note and each shift of tone, and it leaves you the space to
tune in or tune out as you please. Treat yourself to the pleasure
of doing bodywork or yoga in a calming, enriching aural environment.
