Download of my solo album 'Lusitana'.

This album was recorded mostly outdoors in a woodland in Northern Portugal. The compositions and improvisations subtly combine Indian and Western musical elements. The environmental sounds as a result of it being recorded outdoors are also part of the music. Lusitana is the old name of Portugal and to me it represents the gentle, slow pace of life that can still be felt there. This environment is what really made this album what it is.
