A Retrospective Collection:
For two decades, as one of the pioneers of "ambient" and East/West fusion, Raymond Powers has been exploring his unique blend of multi-cultural music, using both traditional instruments and modern technology to accompany his passionate, exotic vocal stylings and instrumental music. He has studied with Western, African, Native American and East Indian music masters. Inspiring audiences, his performances offer the message of global unity, social responsibility and sustainable lifestyles.

Immersed in the cutting edge of music as a transformational tool, he has also collaborated in the creation of sound environments for theater, ceremony, ritual and rites of passage for all ages. He is also a researcher and practitioner of alternative therapies that utilize music, sound and light as healing modalities.
