The Goddess

In the Vedic system Saraswati (Sanskrit: सरस्वती) is the goddess of knowledge, music and the arts.
As a river/water goddess, Saraswati symbolizes fertility and prosperity. She is associated with purity and creativity, especially in the context of communication, such as in literary and verbal skills. In the post-Vedic age, She began to lose her status as a river goddess and became increasingly associated with literature, arts, music, etc. Her name literally means "the one who flows", applied to thoughts, words and actions.

In the Hindu tradition, the Gandharvas are Celestial Musicians that act as a bridge between the Gods and Humans.
Gandharvas are mentioned extensively in the epic Mahabharata as associated with the Devas (as dancers and singers) and with the Yakshas, as formidable warriors. Gandharvas can fly through the air, and are known for their skill as musicians. They are connected with trees and flowers, and are described as dwelling in the scents of bark, sap, and blossom.

The Music: Contemplative Piano

Music in all its forms is an expression of consciousness, but when composed with the intention to connect with the inner realms of life, it acquires a deeper quality. Saraswati has inspired six albums for piano solo, each one dedicated to an element of nature and composed in a different country.

Circles and Spirals, decicated to Water, composed in the Pacific Ocean.
