Visit Zazen CD-coversWith Zazen, Rama established a successful creative precedent: the band traveled to beautiful, pristine "places of power," such as the American Southwest, the Caribbean, and the Himalayas. In these places of power, they worked together to evoke the musical feeling and energy of each place.

"There are special places on our planet," says Rama, "places of power, healing and renewal; places where the mind-body connection is enhanced and that enable us to get back in touch with our deepest innermost feelings.

Cayman Blue "The music of Zazen on the albums Enlightenment, Canyons of Light, Surfing the Himalayas, Ecologie, and the new album Cayman Blue is written, produced and played to bring the listener in touch with the healing and empowering energies of these very special locations.
"We need to preserve these sacred locations for ourselves, for the species of plants and animals that coexist in harmony there, and for the future generations of humankind that will need to be refreshed, renewed and healed by them."
- Rama
