Soundings of the Planet celebrates 40 years of creating Peace Through Music. In 1979 when Dean Evenson first added the sounds of dawn birdsong to the peaceful music of flute and harp he and his wife Dudley were creating, he had no idea he was starting a new genre of music. People had never heard such relaxing music. Over the years, the Evensons have collaborated with outstanding musicians including Scott Huckabay, Li Xiangting, Tom Barabas, d’Rachael, Tim Alexander, and Peter Ali. In addition to their award-winning CDs and DVDs, Dean and Dudley have written their first book Quieting the Monkey Mind: How to Meditate with Music which brings together what they have learned in over four decades of practicing and teaching meditation and making music. Recently, their Soundings Podcast won COVR Visionary Awards Electronic Media of the Year and their Healthy Living Dreams Blog won COVR Visionary Awards Best Blog.
