Waves of Love

Waves of Love

Nadama

Malimba Records

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 10 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, such as harp, flute, and oboe, as well as the way these are mixed in the end product. Attention to detail is readily apparent in every note.
