I haven't been exposed to much Asian music but one day I'll explore it!
According to the liner notes, Asian Lounge is "a collection of cross-cultural fusions and laid-back beats inspired by the musical traditions of Asia." It was released in November 2005. Though its my first cd of Asian music, the mellow groove got me from the first listen.
South Pacific Islands is an extraordinary collection of accessible contemporary music from the beautiful and isolated tropical islands of the South Pacific. It comes with a video clip of one of the songs that pops up when you put it in your computer. The liner notes include a recipe for Chicken in Coconut Cream. Great cd! Each song has a tropical beat with a gentle Asian touch. A fun listen all the way through.
