Karunesh (Hindi: करुणेश, "God of Compassion"; born Bruno Reuter in 1956) is a German-born new-age and ambient musician. His music has strong Indian, African, Australian, Native American/Aboriginal music of Canada, and Middle Eastern influences prevalent throughout with liberal use of Indian instruments such as the violin, sitar, didgeridoo, bouzuki, Native American flute, Chinese temple flutes, tamboura, bamboo flute, and various world percussion instruments.

Karunesh was born in Cologne, Germany in 1956. Although he had been drawn to music as a child and played in bands as a teenager, he chose to study graphic design as a career. However, after obtaining his degree, Karunesh was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. His brush with death prompted him to choose music as a career instead of graphic design. He rethought his life and traveled in 1979 to India, where he met Osho in his ashram in Pune. He became initiated and took on a new spiritual name, Karunesh (meaning "compassion" in Sanskrit).

Back in Germany, Karunesh lived in the Rajneesh commune of Hamburg for five years. There he came in contact with musicians from all over the world and developed an eclectic style of music.

In 1984, Karunesh released his first album, entitled Sounds of the Heart. His next albums were Colors Of Light (1987) and Sky's Beyond (1989).

Karunesh has lived on Maui, in the U.S. state of Hawaii, since 1992.

Karunesh is an artist that received a lot of play during this past and miserable winter along with a couple of bottles of single malt.

Very relaxing and soothing New Age harmonies with an East Indian/Tibetan flavor. Highly recommended for content and mastering.
