New age music on the radio

New age music is a genre that emerged in the 1970s and is characterized by its relaxing, meditative, and often spiritual qualities. It incorporates elements of traditional world music, ambient music, and electronic music. Some of the most popular new age artists include Enya, Yanni, Kitaro, and Vangelis.

Enya is perhaps the most famous new age artist, known for her ethereal vocals and lush, layered soundscapes. Yanni is known for his blend of new age music with classical and world music influences, and has sold over 25 million records worldwide. Kitaro is a Japanese musician who has won multiple Grammy awards for his new age and world music compositions. Vangelis is a Greek musician who is best known for his electronic new age music, as well as his film scores for movies like "Blade Runner" and "Chariots of Fire".

There are several radio stations that focus on new age music, such as "Echoes" and "Hearts of Space."
