Welcome to Soundings of the Planet!

Dean and Dudley Evenson founded Soundings of the Planet in 1979 to be a voice of the planet and to support their vision of ‘Peace Through Music.’ They created one of the first musical recordings to include the sounds of nature and in the process helped launch a whole new genre of relaxation music.  Since then, they have produced over 80 albums and videos and their award-winning music supports meditation, yoga and healing. The Evensons have collaborated with outstanding musicians from around the world including Scott Huckabay, Tom Barabas, Li Xiangting, d’Rachael, Cha-das-ska-dum, Singh Kaur, Daniel Paul and even the Dalai Lama of Tibet. They also produce nature music videos and documentaries on sound healing, environmental issues and travel in Tibet, India, Nepal, and Native American cultures.
