Waves of Love is a stunningly serene and lovely album from pianist/keyboard artist, Nadama, even by the high standards of the Malimba Records label. While the ten tracks are rooted in sublime piano melodies, Nadama's use of an assortment of digital and sampled instruments is absolutely textbook in execution and they help fashion these songs into relaxation masterpieces. There are some moments of gentle playfulness, but even then the overall mood is blissfully mellow. Worthy of mention are the high quality of his sampled instruments, e.g. harp, flute, oboe, as well as the way these are mixed in the end product. Attention to detail is readily apparent in every note. - Bill Binkelman - Retailing Insight Delicate and soulful, the melodies on Healing Touch reflect the sensitivity of their creator.

Waves of Love- On this lovely new recording by Nadama, acoustic piano melodies wash over you like warm ocean waves.

The result is a recording that is profoundly peaceful in both heart and mind. - Bette Timm - Music Reviewer
Simply Beautiful -
Nadama drew inspiration from Hawaii, where he resides, for this
lovely collection of eight lush, calming soundscapes. With the main
melody played on piano and featuring high quality sampled instruments
(string orchestrations, flute, oboe, and harp), Nadama’s compositions
gently wash over the listener, carrying a hint of a tropical breeze,
enticing one to relax, slow down, and enjoy the here-and-now beauty that
surrounds us in the world. Some tracks introduce slow tempo rhythms
(“Fly High” and “Whale Song”) while others flow with a romantic,
neoclassical influence. The CD’s title is a most apt description, as the
disc is “simply beautiful,” indeed. - Retailing Insight Magazine
Healing Touch is the perfect musical suite for massage, reiki. or other therapeutic practices.The spacious calm within this gorgeous recording stands as a serene testimony to the connection between healing practices (like yoga) and healing music. It's not something that can be artificially engineered --- it either comes from the heart or it's not there at all. Nadama delivers the goods! - New Age Voice Magazine
Is there a more archetypal version of New Age music than
piano with orchestral keyboard accompaniment? Nadama’s Touch of Spirit proves there is a lot of life left in this
particular subgenre as he weaves a warm, soothing tapestry of instrumentals
(piano, orchestral accompaniment, chorals, and shimmering bell tones) that will
cushion the vagaries of everyday life, restoring balance to the battered soul.
By the way, the keyboard embellishments are among the best I’ve heard.

Piano-centered music needs a certain special something to stand from the crowd.
Healing Touch by Nadama has that unique feeling, with the heartfelt and deeply personal expression of poignant emotions. Remember the quieter, sacred sound of "Music to Disappear In" ? That is what this is reminiscent of, with its romantic elegance. - Heartbeats Catalog For those who work in the healing arts, Healing Touch II is a perfect accompaniment and a valuable aid. For gentle yoga, it can leave the yogi in a state of euphoria and deep relaxation. For everyday listening, it can open the heart and calm the spirit. - Yoga Journal Reiki Offering

instantly brings one to a place of deep peace and centered relaxation. Shastro's lush clarinet melodies meld with Nadama's brilliant piano strokes to form an exquisite alchemy. Indeed, the two instrumentalists seem to be in perfect synchronicity with each other, with mother nature and with the profound spiritual force that inspired this music. - Napra Review
