Samantha’s Compositions

“From My Heart to Yours”, a cello relaxation CD composed and performed by Samantha

Ordering “From My Heart to Yours”
You can order in one of two ways:

  2. Send me a check by mail. E-mail me at samanthasinai@gmail.com for my address.

More about the CD: From My Heart to Yours was composed to create a space for listeners to experience deep relaxation. I invite you to experiment with using this CD as a part of a daily meditation practice. I also encourage you to find ways to use this CD that make the most sense for you.

With the intent to create a space for listeners to fall deeper and deeper into relaxation, From My Heart to Yours was composed utilizing drones, simple harmonies and repetitive themes. The order of pieces was also intentionally chosen to create an approximately 30 minute relaxation/meditation experience. From the first piece to the last, the music slows down gradually to facilitate relaxation and then speeds up at the end to awaken the listener. The CD was composed to be listened all the way through, but it can also have a relaxing effect if the listener only listens to one piece at a time.

To contact Samantha, please feel free to e-mail her: samanthasinai@gmail.com

    I heard your music at my church (Unity of Madison) one Sunday and bought your CD. Your performance was beautiful and your CD is amazing. Thank you for blessing us with your music and your light.
