A sensitive combination of musical influences, beginning with the lamellophone (saron preset) layered with one of Ethno Instrument's world voice pads. Jordan then brings in the shakuhuchi, Middle Eastern voices, a veena loop from India and a tambura instrument preset (also from India). By melding them together, Jordan creates a world instrument potpourri that transcends musical styles and geographic regions. It's amazing how simple layering can evoke such a transcendent sound. Jordan then ends with a tasteful combination of saron and tambura. This is a great example of how the Ethno Instrument not only lets you recreate music from specific regions or styles, but also to create your own unique pan-ethnic sounds and music.
