A student came across a sage in the forest. 'Let us share some tea,' said the wise elder. And as they sat together, he began pouring. Between rapid-fire questions, the student began to notice that his cup had filled and yet the sage continued pouring, threatening to soak his robes. 'Why do you keep pouring when my cup and saucer are full?' inquired the student. Came the reply, 'Why keep asking questions when your head is full?'
Weaving exotic voices and cross-cultural elements through his sparkling tapestry, Karunesh finds that perfect balance point where classical, world and healing music join, carefully coaxing loves caress from every note.
Zen Breakfast is sacred music from far-off visionary places that touch the heart ever so close to home.

It was during five years that Karunesh lived in an ashram in Germany that he had the opportunity to learn from and play together with musicians from cultures around the world. Music was a vital part of the mystical experience being pursued and where Karunesh (Sanskrit for compassion) says he developed the ability to weave different styles and feelings together into a living symbiosis - a symbiosis carried by his own very unique and personal melodies from the heart.
Karunesh was born in 1956 in Cologne, Germany. Although he had been drawn to music as a child and played in bands as a teen, he chose to study graphic design as a career. After attaining his degree, the path did not feel right for him and as sometimes happens to prompt us of a critical need for a change in direction, Karunesh was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. For two weeks, he was suspended between life and death and this experience sparked the beginning of his spiritual path. In 1979 he made his first journey to India and began to follow his heart.
In 1984 Karunesh released his first album Sounds of the Heart, an album that quickly became a classic in the new age genre. More albums followed. With 450,000 albums sold to date, Karunesh has become established as one of the best-known artists in the genre.
Karunesh has lived in Maui, Hawaii, since 1992, bathed in the healing warmth and fragrances of the tropics. From this island's feminine embrace, he creates music that holds a beautiful, sacred and healing resonance for those who listen.
