As you know...music has always been a wonderful tool for traveling on the inner journey. Music from the 'East Edge' is just the vehicle to take you to new and spacious inner vistas. Kim Merlino, a multi-instrumentalist, began his musical journey in the early 1960's training in classical piano. In the late 60's he began playing guitar and experimenting with electronic music in rock bands. Since then his training and experiences have led him to study a variety of instruments including piano, banjo, mandolin, sitar and guitar. His current favorite instrument is his sampling keyboard. In 2008 Kim released '5 Buddhas Full Moon' which is a meditative CD written in the 'Ethno Asian' ambient style.
