Flautist Nawang Khechog plays achingly lovely music that blends New Age synthesizer with flute timbres that evoke his native Tibet. His work with R. Carlos Nakai and Kitaro show the musician's range and willingness to experiment, yet at the center of MUSIC FOR MEDICINE is a deep stillness and expansive spirit, gesturing to the natural wonders of the Himalayas and the spiritual practices associated with the Zen tradition of the region. The titles of the album's compositions--"Healing Through Kindness;" "Harmony in Balance;" "Calls of Compassion to Humanity"--reinforce the spiritual consciousness at the center of MUSIC AS MEDICINE. Likewise, the music feels deeply considered and benevolent, with Khechog's perfectly executed flute lines soaring through the atmosphere like birds on the wind. MUSIC AS MEDICINE makes good on its title, and is as beautiful and deeply healing an album of instrumental music as one is likely to find.
