The British musician Hilary Robertson has a wonderful podcast, talking to musicians of every genre from all over the world. I was honored to be interviewed by her, talking about the importance of music, and especially lullabies, for healing during stressful times.
Dennis Raimondi hosts a radio program on KRUU that covers all topics. In this segment we talk about the fun and interesting stories behind some well known lullabies, and share experiences of music and parenting.
This program, hosted by Mario Orsatti, features people from all walks of life who incorporate meditation into their life and their work. Mario and I talked about how my music is influenced by my role as a teacher of meditation, the connection between meditation and music, and of course some points about the power of the gentle music of lullabies!
