The calming sounds of bansuri flute, piano and subtle guitar strumming lie at the heart of this meditative endeavor from multi-instrumentalist Shastro. EARTH SUTRAS is comprised of four instrumental pieces. "Walk Gently" and "Dikara," the two middle tracks, are a pair of long-form pieces that incorporate delicate rhythms and soft flowing instrumentation into a mellow, atmospheric backdrop. The bookend tracks are shorter in length - the first, titled "Frog Sutras" is a quiet opening selection that features an ambient backdrop of frog sounds, while the "Gaia," the closing tune, offers a laid-back groove comprised of guitar strumming and light Asian instrumentation. All four pieces have a certain "natural" quality to them, which falls in line with the album's sub-title "Walk Gently On the Earth."
