Ariel Kalma is the kind of musician that collectors live their lives to find at the bottom of a dollar record bin, and the kind who fellow musicians hope to become. He is a composer who worked on the periphery of a fringe movement, whose early adherents have recently seen an explosion in popularity...- Vivian Hua, redefinemag.com

Eternalia has a way of centering itself—like a laser beam straight through the center of the head.
A lotus flower, a babbling brook and a palatial arch ensconced in light are things we see pretty often on new age album covers. A skeleton isn’t, and the one on the cover of Ariel Kalma’s Eternalia seems to beckon us into the depths of one of the headiest and most enjoyable new albums from the old guard of new age—an album to be mentioned in the same breath as Laraaji’s Bring on the Sun/Sun Gong and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith & Suzanne Ciani’s Sunergy.
Kalma is a French-born, Australia-based new age musician who’s been recording since the early 1970s. Despite being the subject of An Evolutionary Music, a wonderful 2014 compilation from RVNG Intl., he’s been largely passed over in the new age revival. Blame the fact that most of his music wasn’t available for years; blame the massive Bandcamp dump that made it accessible to the masses but not in chronological or even remotely coherent order. He’s obscure, and Eternalia probably won’t change this. It should.
Kalma’s voluminous Bandcamp describes Eternalia as a “saga,” giving listeners detailed descriptions on how to approach it. He recommends humming along. He also advises listeners to go in drug-free, which might sink the hearts of some listeners hoping for a psychedelic experience. Whether you follow Kalma’s word in listening to the album depends on how much you buy into his new-age philosophy—this is not an album that makes concessions for the jean-jacket crowd—but its structure as an album in the classic-rock sense means it flows seamlessly and has a clear beginning and end.
