Beautiful wedding of Hindi Ragas and modular ambient music. Jain weaves her influences together seamlessly, making music that sounds like it has always existed. The album is warm, soothing, and detailed enough to keep you interested on repeated listens.


Ethereal and other worldly blend of ambient electronica and classical Indian ragas

Standouts: Look How Far We've Come, The Sun Swirls Within You, Cultivating Self Love

Dropouts: none
