New Age Harp Music? Oh Yeah!

The first time I heard "new age" harp music must have been back in the late 1980's. The title was "Ocean Peace" I believe but the name of the artist eludes me.

Anyway, the harp is perfect for the New Age style. A beautiful and gentle tone that seems to go to the heart and spirit with ease.

I was looking for this particular artist when I stumbled upon this very evocative video. I love the sound she makes with her harp ... and it's original music.

Just wanted to let you know about this!

    Nice, but I have always liked the harp (upright piano not played with mallets).
    Being a musician from another era, I find the visuals distracting. Just let me watch the musician without scenes, lights, and other magic that pervades current popular music.

  2. Well, I think we have different opinions here.

    As a music teacher, I really enjoyed watching the video and listening to its music. Even though I do not know how to play the harp, I do love listening to the sound it makes.

    Thanks for sharing!
