” Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” -Red Auerbach

You hardly need a news report to tell you about the healing power of music.  Many studies over the years have confirmed our own personal experiences:  music can positively affect our moods.  Like purposely turning your mouth into a smile, you can immediately feel happier, more inspired and even relaxed when you listen to your favorite songs.

Any music will do, but doctors and healing professionals often recommend ambient music therapy for therapeutic purposes.  Can you just imagine getting this advice?  “Listen to these two CDs, and then call me in the morning!

What comes to mind when you consider New Age artists?  Let me tell you that its probably not what you might have heard 10-20 years ago!  These days, “new age” can include several other music genres that are exciting, inspiring and make you want to dance!   Ambient music, world music, alternative music and much more, are often mistakenly grouped together, even though they all have a unique sound.  Type in any one of the phrases into Google, and you’ll likely find all of these sounds.

With New Age radio stations and music online, it is easy and convenient to enjoy the best New Age music…. even if you might call it something other than New Age!

Chilling with Ambient New Age Music

Sometimes, I wonder if “New Age” has passed its prime, and we should just refer to the genre as ambient or new world.  But, then I think that new age music still holds special qualities that should be celebrated and honored.  Even though there may be some preconceptions with the term “New Age,” the style has evolved quite a bit since the 1960s when it first emerged on the scene.

To recognize the maturity of this genre and honor its roots,  I believe that “ambient new age music” accurately describes today’s sounds.  Yes, you’ll still hear experimental sounds and textures featuring synthesizers, acoustic and electric instruments.  But listening to this music is not the same as it was 30 or 40 years ago.
