Relaxace was established in 1979 and retains its original personnel. The most important inspiration was from the beginning found in Indian classical music. Each of the members took their own stimuli, or learned to play some Indian instrument. Their music is characterised by a meditative component, a "mutually receptive and joyful communication between the players which should also become transmitted to the listeners. Therefore the goal of all concerts is to awaken the heart and shart a common path to the Kingdom of Love."
