A mix of Santana and Yanni (and likely some Pink Floyd in there, too), Kitaro was a random pick of mine when I was recently browsing the popular music section in our audio-visual department at Central library. He is touted as a master of the New Age music movement, but I simply appreciate the music as being a combination of sounds and styles. It isnt the space music/under the sea sound of something like Paul Winters Callings, but is instead a nice melding of all sorts of things right about music: orchestral flow, digital sound, traditional instrumentation, and long blues-based guitar strains. 

A winner of numerous Grammy Awards, Kitaros music will be on my MP3 player for a long time to come.  Downloads are available on his personal website

Shame on me for discovering Kitaro's music just now. His music can be use as good soundtrack. I agree with what you said about the combination of sounds and styles. Kitaro indeed is a very intelligent artist. Count me in as a fan from now on.

I really enjoy Kitaro music, especially when meditating, I find his music very peaceful and relaxing. One of my favourite songs is The Silk Road, I absolute love the violin solo at the beginning of the track.
