This week, we'll look at the Sun. The periodic table lists 117 elements in the universe yet the sun is mostly just hydrogen and helium. Its simplicity belies its enormous life giving value in both a physical and spiritual sense. Exploring this paradox for us on this edition of Idyllic Music are Cling, Omihoshbin, Subtronik, 2 Bone Giants, Vim Cortez and Amanda Jayne. I'm Jim Nye.
London-based Cling has a reputation for dreamtime elemental music. From their Sonic Spells CD, this is 'Slipping Away'.
