In keeping with the "world" themes of this curation, Bliss hail from Denmark, though their collective owes as much to influences from Guinea and Sweden! They first appeared in the early 2000's which really was the halcyon period for ambient chill stuff it seems - a golden age? So. if you listen to Cafe Del Mar, Buddha Bar or Hotel Costes stuff then there's every chance you'll have picked up something by them. Subsequently disbanded, Bliss were in fact a quartet  anchored by Steffen Aaskoven and Marc-George Anderson, and including vocalists Alexandra Hamnede and co-writer Tchando,

"The Suns of Afterlife" is, by turns, a heavenly mix of violins, keyboard, accordian, pipes and brass with that oh so gentle percussion running through it. And then there's those breathy  Afro voices...reminiscent of Richard Bona who plays occasionally with Pat Metheny. It's uplifting, ethereal and melodic...what more could you want for those peaceful moments staring up at the ceiling or out of the window?
