The Music of Anugama
Anugama is a gifted multi-instrumentalist who has been publishing his music for the last 20 years. His music covers a wide spectrum of expression: from tribal rhythmical Dance music, to shamanistic music of power and peace, to uplifting, lyrical melodies that make the spirit soar, to flute music derived from a wide variety of cultures of the world.
He creates the ethereal music of vastness and silence that let the listener explore their own inner expansion and stillness. His special strength lies in the exceptional feeling, sensitivity and skill which pervade his compelling and alive rhythms that are the heart of his music. AnugamaÕs music creates an environment of uplifting support, confirmation and nourishment for heart and soul.
Anugama was born in Cologne, Germany. It became apparent early on that he had inherited his family’s musical talents. At age 8 he began playing the recorder flute. A few years later he took up the guitar with great enthusiasm. The flow of musical creativity continued in his teens through drums, a perfect milieu for the rock and soul music of the time. At age 19 he started playing drum set with a number of soul groups.
Around this time he also worked in a music shop in Hamburg Germany. Surrounded by all kinds of musical instruments he was free to experiment. Although he had no formal training, the music flowed through him with a natural ease. During this time many talented musicians visited and performed in Hamburg. This provided a wonderful opportunity for exposure to music of many influences and impressions.
A strong pull led him to travel extensively in his twenties. This expanded further the variety of instruments and musical styles available to him. A strong interest in spiritual philosophies and meditation also developed, and this led him to Asia. The 5 years he spent there proved to be a time of profound transformation.
Being inspired by so many different cultures, Anugama has become a skillful multi-instrumentalist. He loves to create all kinds of music and his vast repetoire ranges from the zesty beats of African and Caribbean sounds, to the flowing rhythms of Hawaii and the meditative spirit of India and Japan.
He is fascinated by the way in which different frequencies create music and the way these frequencies can affect our whole being. To this end he has become well recognized for his achievements in healing music. His intention, through all of his music, is to support a healing of the spirit and a greater universal harmony.
He has the rare gift of being not only a brilliant musician, but of also being able to compose, arrange and produce his own recordings. Over the last 10 years he has created 16 recordings.
Now, residing on the island of Maui, Hawaii, he receives great inspiration from the intensely beautiful surroundings. What radiates through his music is a joyous love of life and a deep sense of peace. To this end, he continues to create and share his love of music with us.
