There are so many good artists in new age, chillout, ambient, lounge, electronica, world music and fusion categories whose music I like that it's virtually impossible to name all of them at one point. Some artists are quite famous, while some not so. Here are some of my favourites:
- German duo Schiller's music combines dance with chill-out leading to an emotional dreamy kind of feel to it. Favourite albums are Zeitgeist (1999) and Weltreise (Voyage) (2001). Favourite tracks include Die Wirklichkeit, Das Glockenspiel, Die Nacht... Du Bist Nicht Allein, and many others.
2) Secret Garden
- Irish violinist Fionnuala Sherry and Norwegian pianist/keyboardist Rolf Lovland's collaboration produced their debut album 'Songs from a Secret Garden' in 1995. Ever since I've become a big fan of their sweet, melancholic instrumental music. Nocturne is my favourite track (which btw also appears in Schiller's 'Voyage' album, with their own electronic touch).
