This morning I decided to go to Zone Music Reporter to find some music to listen to while I was doing my morning yoga routine. The first album that caught my attention was Reiki Hands of Love from Deuter. It sounded like the perfect album to go with yoga and it was.! But who is this Deuter? Wikipedia tells us that… Deuter (born Georg Deuter in 1945) is a German new age instrumentalist and recording artist known for his meditative style that blends Eastern and Western musical styles.
Since the early 70s, Deuter has released over 60 albums, most of them intended to accompany various healing and spiritual practices such as Reiki, massage and meditation. Deuter is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist. He taught himself the guitar, flute, harmonica and “just about every instrument I could get my hands on,” at an early age. Through the years Deuter has continued to learn to play and master a wide variety of instruments, including the drums, the shakuhachi flute, the koto, sitar, Tibetan singling bowls, and beyond.
Reiki Hands of Love is a great album for both meditation and just relaxing, It’s oh so quiet and serene… The album is designed to gently help this process by being a friendly energy in the background. It is a harmonious flow of sounds and melodies, compassionately supporting the act of calming and healing. Since 1995 Deuter has released his recordings on New Earth Records. I do believe I have to go to their website and check out the other artists who record on New Earth Records. But in the meantime I have a lot of Deuter’s music to explore!
