Hypnotic New Age Album: Bindu by Michael Brant Demaria
Grammy nominated sound healer Michael Brant DeMaria recently released Bindu (Ontos Music), a mesmerizing and soothing ambient album that is receiving well-earned praise from new age music lovers around the world.
“Bindu” is Sanskrit, meaning “moment of creation or awakening.” This latest release in his Healing Sound Project—following The River, Ocean, and Gaia—gives listeners the sounds and inspiration for inner exploration and reflection.
With a PhD in psychology, DeMaria creates for his audience music and sound conditions that promote healing of the body, mind, and soul. Bindu is an album that complements therapeutic healing practices—such as meditation, yoga, or even massage—as well as provides soothing ambient music for relaxing, quiet evenings.
Healing with Music

Skilled with the keyboard and as a percussionist, DeMaria is best known for his talent with the Native American flute. DeMaria notes that the flute is “uniquely capable of expressing the soulful and heartfelt qualities that are so often missing in our world today.”

Ocean earned DeMaria the ZMR Music Awards of Best Ambient Album and Best Relaxation/Meditation Album of 2009.
New Age Relaxation Album
Demaria’s Bindu is an ambient and hypnotic blend of flutes, synthesizers, bells, keyboards, and electronic sounds, accented with choir voices. “Anahata” is my favorite track on the Bindu album. It’s a soothing song that can easily accompany breathing and meditation practices. Title track “Bindu” has an exotic mystery about it, while “Journey to Nowhere” enchants listeners into a calm state of reflection with its gentle and flowing sound. The chimes and piano in “Twilight” are mesmerizing and gentle, making it the perfect relaxation song.
Demaria’s new age album Bindu is a highly recommended soundtrack for meditation, relaxation, and self-reflection. Demaria’s ability to engage listeners’ spirituality through music is remarkable.
