Kitaro credits powers beyond himself for his music, which focuses on peace and spirituality. He first became known in the 1970s as a New Age musician, using a synthesizer to create the sounds of many instruments. His most famous work was the soundtrack for the NHK series, The Silk Road.
Heaven and Earth received a Golden Globe award for Best Original Score. The title track is here paired with evocative imagery, much of it pictures on or around the Li River in China. The pictures are lovely though I donít care for many of the transitions. Nevertheless, watch it full screen.
