NADA, Meditation & New Age Sounds by Eduardo Tarilonte
Nada is the primal sound or the first vibration out of which the whole creation has sprung
NADA is a fascinating collection of sounds for Meditation, New Age, and Relaxation Music.

NADA also offers mesmerizing overtone Singing Voices and an alluring and charming Female Solo Voice as well as deep, peaceful, and warm Meditations Pads.
Nada is the Sanskrit word for “sound” or “tone.” Many yogis believe that nada is the hidden energy that connects the outer and inner cosmos. Nada yoga, or nada philosophy, is based on the premise that the entire universe consists of sound vibrations called nadas. The words, nada yoga, can be translated to mean “union through sound.” This ancient Indian system follows a science of inner transformation through sound and tone.
“After a whole life having gone through many musical styles, there is one that has always been in my heart. Because, deep inside, is a significant part of my soul and my essence from which I cannot let go: New Age music – to which I owe it all; what I am and what I feel. I have gone from ethnic, folk, antique to soundtrack music, and every single note I composed or sampled was imbued with it in some way. Sometimes I thought it had left, never to return, but it was always there, dormant and feeding from those new styles and, at the same time, providing them with all its spirit. Now it has returned and more beautiful than ever. NADA is a spiritual travel through the sounds of my soul.” EDUARDO TARILONTE
