This album has a variety of pieces with drone backgrounds, from East Indian to Persian sounds. The Eastern music is meditative, contemplative, inward-seeking.
The drone in its many forms reminds us of the humming of bees, suggesting the mysteries of the Sarmoung Brotherhood and other ancient paths. The haunting chant, the winding notes of the flute, and the life-supporting rhythms of the tablas reconstruct the dance of worker bees in their search for nectar to make honey.
One's attention dips in and out, but the drone is always there—like the endless flow of Being.
