Tea House Rain

Tea House Rain, 60 minutes stereo, recorded by Billy Martin

Step into my Tea House. Relax, get some solitude and leave the busy tumultuous world behind for a while. The purpose of my Tea House is to leave all things outside like the samurai did with their swords in ancient Japan. This recording will help you “wash it away” and find peace. – Billy Martin aka illy B
