about

Walk the path of the mystic through medieval landscapes expertly crafted in this powerful album from Grammy® nominee Al Conti.

A new album by Grammy-nominee Al Conti holds the promise of transporting us to another place and time. With this artful, sweeping blend, Conti leads us to explore the eternal, while inspiring the mystic within us all to embrace our surroundings and live a conscious life. Ideal for creating a relaxing and meditative space, MYSTIC begins with the tolling of distant bells calling us to introspection. In addition to this dramatic title track, another eight compositions feature the captivating medieval sounds of chant, udu, hurdy gurdy, cittern, lutes, violins, lush electric guitars by Jeff Pearce, haunting harps by Pamela Copus (2002) and alluring ambient vocals from Charlee Brooks (David Arkenstone).
