the Himalayas and trekked through Nepal and Tibet. They returned
with sounds and images of the landscape and religion and forged
it into a new CD called TIBET. Martin and Gallagher talk about
their journey and the music it inspired.

who've been bringing Celtic music across the country for 25 years.

Pam is a denizen of the hammered dulcimer. Together they weave
an enchanting sound, mixing original music with traditional Celtic
themes. Their latest album is WHERE DRAGONS DANCE (Alula Records).

DONNA DELORY: FROM MADONNA TO MANTRAS Donna DeLory has been singing professionally since she was
8 years old. She has several solo albums out, although she's
best known as a back-up singer for Madonna and has been in the
choruses of Madonna songs since the mid 1980s. On her own, DeLory
tends towards more mystical fare on CDs like IN THE GLOW and BLISS
(Secret Road Records). Her new CD, THE LOVER AND THE BELOVED (Ajna
Music) takes her on a Mantric journey, singing chants in sanskrit
in elaborately produced arrangements that recall Rasa. In her
Los Angeles home, in the midst of rehearsing for Madonna's summer
tour, Donna DeLory talks about her mystic music.
MICHAEL WHALEN'S FETAL HEARTBEAT Michael Whalen is a veteran composer whose work in soundtracks
includes numerous scores for Discovery Channel and National Geographic
productions, jingles, and films directed by Rob Lowe and Vincent
Gallo. His latest albums include an ambient CD called LIKE RAIN
THROUGH MY HANDS and a soundtrack for a book called From Conception
To Birth: A Life Unfolds (Cherry Lane Records). It's a mesmerizing
journey that accompanies artfully manipulated photos of the birthing
process. In the womb of his studio, Michael Whalen talks about
music being born.
