This song has a FANTASTIC beat. I picture sand in Egypt, even though that's the wrong influence for this piece.

When I hear this song... My body starts to move to a slow spiritual dance and then my mind drifts away to a place of total peace of mind, body and soul. I have all of her albums, except this one... will be buying it!!! God Bless her, I love music so much!!!

My soul is dancing as the sitar plays, my body also in rhythm. .. My mind and spirit drifts off to faraway lands of yore, as the melodic flow smokes and trails into, through, and all around who I am.. Loreena imbibe me.. create my recreated being.. my incarnated she from so long before....

I have yet to listen to one of loreena's songs and be disappointed . She has an angelic voice that brings out the soul.

@ThePen Here is the nearest relationship I can come up with (the same happens to me) The Star Wars score is 'similar' to the Lord of the Rings score, which featured the vocal talents of Enya many times, who co-leads the same genre as Loreena McKennitt.

What on earth is this doing on my Star Wars station?!?

Loreena so masterfully weaves mideastern themes into the strong Celtic core of her music. She is a very rare, gifted beauty who brings profound meaning and joy of Celtic music to so many fans.

Transcendent beauty with soulful rising rhythm and melody.

You're awfully hostile, debra.

are you of celtic origin ? If not - shut the pie hole. You wouldn't know good music if it hit you in the head !

Good song. Tries to mask the Celtic roots with mid-eastern influence... f a i l s .
