GAIA Prime Internet Radio plays commercial free, uninterrupted music, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, via the Internet only, at 128 kbps and 44.1 kHz. We feature an eclectic mix of classic New Age Contemporary Instrumental music, as well as significant New Age / Celtic Fusion music and New Age / World Fusion music selections from the past 25 or so years.
The majority of the music that we play can be described as calm, peaceful, spiritual, contemplative, soothing, mellow, tranquil, and serene, but with occasional surprises. The music is also primarily acoustic instrumental, with some vocals, and minimal synthesizer or other electronics. The music also has distinctly international qualities, including music influenced by Native American, Mexican, Brazilian, Argentinian, Peruvian, Colombian, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Irish, British, Welsh, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Turkish, Russian, Middle Eastern, Asian Indian, African, Chinese, Japanese, Australian Aboriginal, and of course, American cultures. Similarly, the artists currently featured on our station are from all around the world, including from the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Norway, Finland, Holland, Belgium, Ireland, England, Wales, Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Iran, China, South Korea, Japan, Australia, and India.

All of the music we play has been carefully chosen to represent the best of the best of what this type of music has to offer. We choose music based on a variety of criteria, including creativity, distinctiveness, complexity, performance quality, completeness, style, seriousness, significance, and production quality. We only play the highest quality digital recordings, and although we feature musical selections from over 150 CDs, we seldom include every song from a given CD on our playlist. In fact, for most of them, we include only the best two or three selections. Each work we present has been carefully curated to provide the listener with a continuous stream of refined, outstanding, stimulating, emotionally satisfying, and memorable musical experiences.
GAIA Prime Radio is privately owned and operates on a very tight budget. Consequently, we rely largely on donations from listeners to help us cover the expenses involved in keeping our station online, purchasing new music, paying appropriate royalties to performers, etc. And because our format is totally commercial free, we do not receive any revenue from on air advertising. We believe that the music we play sells itself, and so we prefer to let the music speak for us. And we very much would like to keep it that way. Therefore, any financial assistance provided by our listeners is always gratefully appreciated.
Even if you are not able to make a donation, please help us out by giving us a “Like” on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter or TuneIn Radio.
