Gaya Of Wisdom - Guy Sweens
Guy was born in the South-East of the Netherlands. As a child, Guy showed much interest in music and was spending time listening to pop and classical music. His grandparents, who had an excellent sounding piano, inspired Guy to play. It was at this time he discovered how he enjoyed composing music by himself, and although Guy could not read music, he managed to compose simple musical pieces by himself. Guy's music can best be defined as vibrant, passionate, spiritual, and saturated with melodic warmth and gentle rhythm. A fusion of western and exotic styles is present with a clear Indian influence. In order to create these textures, Guy uses many different instruments from all over the world, combined with modern synthesis and technology.
Telling the story of Buddha through musical expression creates a beautifully descriptive album for the senses. Exotic flutes, vocal textures, and the sounds of India guide the listener to spiritual enlightenment.
