The actual title, as printed on the CD case is: inhale s l o w l y, and that is just what the artists have invited you to do. Slow down, take a breath, and relax into this supremely calming album.

There is a strong Indian flavor to the music, coming mostly from White's use of traditional instruments like the esraj and sitar. But Paulino uses his synthesizers to great effect, supporting the melodies and providing excellent accompaniment.

There are only five songs on this album, ranging in length from 8:42 (Island Pulse) to 17:02 (in-joy).

If you hate the sound of sitar, you won't like this album, but everyone else will likely enjoy its calming sounds. Recommended.
