This show was 1st in the global world music chart, 2nd in the global chill chart, 3rd in the global chillout chart and 5th in the global ambient chart.
This mix is a breath of fresh air, going in a different direction than any of my recent mixes. Here's what Paul has to say about this excellent set:
“This mix features oud, sitar and koto, moving from the Near East, across South Asia to the Far East. This is not a Folkways sampler, but focuses on the rich tapestries created when Eastern and Western musical styles and instruments are blended together, with both traditions being equal participants, rather than one used merely as “exotic” embellishments for the other. While examples of such cross-cultural collaborations go back to the mid-20th century, I’ve highlighted more recent work, guided, as always, by the Low Lights leitmotif of gentle atmospheres, with a few mid-tempo gems snuck into the mix. ”
