Himalaya is a re - release of an album that was recorded in 1997 by Blue Star. Each track of the album is related to an aspect of tibetan mythology and spirituality:
Dawatschen - The Land of bliss, a station on the way to enlightenment.
Greetings From The Top Of The World - Just some meditative music
Gyayum Tschenmo - The supreme mother.
Lung Gom - The ancient technique of walking in trance without the need for food or sleep enabled Tibetan Lamas to cross the large desert in short time.
Tschenresi’s Vow - Tschenresi is the Tibetan god of compassion. He promised to liberate all beings that are able to feel. As this task is far to much for an ordinary body, Amithaba - the Buddha gave Tschenresi 1000 arms and 11 heads to fulfill his mission.
Dakini Dance - Dakinis are the female expression of the
inner self and can give guidance along the way.
Tumo - The inner fire that is created in meditation heats up the body. This enabled buddhist monks to survive in their cold himalayan caves. It is said they can melt the snow with their inner heat.
Blue Lotus - The Lotus is a symbol for spiritual
transformation. It starts its life in the mud and turns into a beautiful flower.
Compassion for all living creatures and the desire for peace and oneness are reflected in these instrumentals, that combine ethnic instruments with electric and acoustic guitars, hammond organ, electric pianos and many more instruments.
The Blue Star Story
One evenig Elizabeth said: „What about recording some music that is exactly what we like, a record we would buy for ourselves?“ That was way back in 1985, when Peter and Elizabeth started to create some music without vocals in their then still small studio.
Instrumental music with lots of guitars was way uncool in those days. But it felt right for the artists and set the course for their future work.
10 CDs, more than 100 000 downloads and 700 produced tracks later, Blue Star are successful independent Artists with an own label.
„Hot Interaction of Mr. Guitar and Lady Hammond“, wrote a critic.
Stellar guitar, melodic like Santana / Peter Green plus a touch of U.S. - Soulblues a‘ la Larry Carlton meet groovy Hammond lines in the style of Jimmy McGriff but also Gegg Rolie (Ex Santana) Emotion and playfulness are the main ingredients. Live drums live peacefully beneath loops and samples.
Peters Les Paul, ES 335 und Gretsch White Falcon are the main guitars. Elizabeth plays a 1963 Hammond C3 with Leslie, Rhodes and Wurlitzer Pianos.
Atmosphere is the keyword that makes this music interesting for musicians and non musicians as well.
Listening to Blue Star for the first time, it takes a while until you notice that nobody is singing. The instruments tell their stories and nobody misses vocals.
The more quiet albums like Himalaya (1997 / 2008) and Zen Blues (2003) are relaxed, almost meditative, but without the new age grease.
Cds like Ritual are more on the hot https://www.tradebit.comh live drums and percussion really cooking, this studio album has an almost live https://www.tradebit.comtever album you listen to, it will always sound like Blue Star
Since February 2005, Blue Star live and play in a small village near the Bavarian lake Chiemsee. Peter and Elizabeth are fascinated by the beautiful scenery, the mountains and lakes and the gentle people.
This definately influences the music: "Looking out of my studio window lets the creative juices flow"; says Peter."I''m hit by new melodies and ideas at an almost insane pace."
