This romantic music is the most celebrated of all the Michael & Mead albums. Called “a milestone of World Fusion music,” the Celtic harp and flute weave a timeless story through the ages and around the globe. Benjy Wertheimer joins them with exotic stringed and percussion instruments from India, Africa and the Middle East. Joe Euro's Spanish guitar adds a touch of passion.

This record received heavy rotation from the nationally syndicated radio broadcast Echoes (Public Radio International) for many months running. The Michael & Mead duo were twice featured in the Echoes Living Room Concert series.

Reviews

Michael and Mead are overlooked gems of new acoustic music...Their compositions rise out of the daily noise like a soothing balm, delivering a more serene state of mind. ”

— Billboard Magazine

This music is too pretty to exist in these angst-ridden times. It seems to come from a gentler era, perhaps Elizabethan. But these are no Renaissance revivalists, the blend is thoroughly modern, mixing in percussion from the Middle East and India with searing melodies. ”

— John Diliberto, producer and host of “Echoes” (PRI syndicated broadcast)

A milestone of world fusion music... The Eastern and Western instruments share musical dialogue so effectively they seem to eliminate such distinction. Seductively romantic, haunting and elegant... Pure music! ”

— Chris Lunn, Victory Review

Flights of fantasy effortlessly ignite as the mysterious and intriguing sounds take hold of the imagination for an unforgettable magic carpet ride. Truly lovely music for those who dare to dream.”

— P.J. Birosik, Monthly Aspectarian
