Album Notes
BEFORE YOU SEE Seven pieces, approximately 50 minutes; sitar, synthesizer, percussion, pan pipes, shakuhachi and bamboo flute. Some Latin rhythms, some Mideastern, one reggae. Generally mellow, soothing, relaxing.

Received a 5-star (highest rating) from JAM Magazine: "For fans of psychedelic world music, this one's a must."


"The sitar is back. And one of its new, contemporary masters is Stephan Mikés. . . . (He) has created a compelling East-meets-West musical fusion using the sitar and other Eastern instruments along with pedal steel guitar and synthesizers. The sounds may be foreign but the compositional structures are familiar and include pop-like melodic hooks you can hang your head and heart on."
-- Scott Benarde, Critics' Choice, The Palm Beach Post

". . . The result is a collection of accessible originals, featuring simple, appealing melodies and rhythms, which at turns produce meditative or uplifting feelings."

-- Laura Wilansky, Cafe Society, XS Magazine

Great, lively, uplifting- makes me happy!
I like to play it loudly tooling along in the car ( and I'm too old to do that! ) Unusual blend of sitar and other instruments, sitar played in a way I hadn't heard before...


Relaxing not boring!
I love this CD, it's very relaxing yet not boring or sleepy. It makes you feel good when you listen to it. It's very positive.
