Finnish Inner Peace

Sanaton, Music for inner Peace, Vol. 1 (Aito Records, 2006)

The Helsinki Day Spa and Aito Records have teamed up and put the sounds of inner peace on CD with the release of "Sanaton." Compiling some of the biggest names in Finnish music, "Sanaton" is a serene journey intended to ease you through the "gentle and relaxing moods of the Finnish summer – all the way from the velvety waters of the Baltic to the silent tundra of Lapland."

You’ll wind your way through the tranquil spaces created by such artists as Pauliina Lerche, Pekka Lehti, Markku Lepistö and Janne Lappalainen. The only thing to do is get the cucumber slices and the mud mask, listen and relax.

Set in Pineboro, North Carolina, Chasing Athena’s Shadow follows the adventures of Grace, an adult literacy teacher, as she seeks to solve a long forgotten family mystery. Her charmingly dysfunctional family is of little help in her quest. Along with her best friends, an attractive Mexican teacher and an amiable gay chef, Grace must find the one fading memory that holds the key to why Grace’s great-grandmother, Athena, shot her husband on the courthouse steps in 1931.

Traversing the line between the Old South and New South, Grace will have to dig into the past to uncover Athena’s true crime.
