Meira Warshauer: Living Breathing Earth. © 2011 Navona Records LLC

The motivation for Meira Warshauer's music is entirely an expression of a love for the earth and its Creator, and her strong Jewish faith -- something she returned to strongly after what she describes as a spiritual journey through Eastern mysticism and meditation.
