Ban Sabai Records latest release ‘Waves of the Winds’ is the fourth co production of producer Thomas van Nes (Studio THomasso) and Ban Sabai Spa. They have set out to create music to rejuvenate and soothe soul, body and mind.
The musical base for most compositions is provided by Steev Kindwald’s unusual and extra ordinary flute playing. The concept of this music is for the harmonic and breath-based drones to act as a sound driver to take the listener on an auditive journey where he experiences an individual story. The creations are driven by the continuous sounds which are based on the varied traditions Steev has encountered on his travels seeking perfection. His music is often compared to a full band due to the many rhythmic variations, backbeats and melodic permutations he creates on these instruments in concerts and recordings. The main focus is to create timeless and beautiful music that respects the knowledge of the traditional form but creates for the future; to create a current mood using ancient sounds inherent to many cultures.

Multi instrumentalist Peter Lee plays the bansuri (bamboo flute) on two tracks. He says of himself: “I’m still living in dreams, but coming into reality often enough to remember where it is even if I still don’t quite know what it is.” Four vocalists put down their interpretations of ancient Hindu and in two cases improvisational chanting. Thomas gave vocalist Toi San as instruction for the improvisational ‘Poki Sai’ to imagine a language that could be ours if we imagine the earth as an experiment of all civilizations in the universe learning to coexist in peace and harmony. Lauren Brown added several chants, among them the healing mantra ‘Bekhadze’ or The Medicine Buddha Mantra and the powerful ‘Om Namah Shivaya’. Together with Oliver Kroll she wishes all to be happy and healthy, for all to experience what is good and to let no one suffer in ‘Sarve Shaam’. Oliver uses his four octave vocal range on the improvised ‘Om Guru’ and on ‘Prabhujee’. Annie Frances, with a voice critically acclaimed internationally as one of the best of her type (see her website), ventured into unknown territory with her rendition
