    "Above the Treetops" is a cover of an ancient traditional Cambodian chant "Buong Suong".

    From someone who is an Atheist, I must say, to deny the spiritual vibrations of this song is to deny the human in you. Everyone who listens carefully has a soulful experience. It simply means that it allows you to get in touch with something meaningful in your core... I know that every time I listen to it, my blood pressure goes down.

    Couldn't care less about the so called "spiritual" aspect of such songs. This song, regardless of the origin or intent is still magnificent.

    Enchanting is a good word to describe this music. I find it completely engaging and relaxing.
