Any clue about this song?

Since the last question of On Golden Pond (thanks jeanmari), I have been working on another mystery yet unidentified music:


After some investigations, I learned that it could be categorized as newage instrumental, and that harp is played in the middle of the song, along with drum or percussion, synthesizer, and apparently male humming.

I also learned that there are websites in which one can find a song by humming or manually playing virtual piano keyboard on page. I tested them by myself with Greenday's Basket Ball. Some of the online music finders showed their results correctly. Okay they did work at least for well-known music. But none of them could detect mine, which was well expected, though...

It was recorded at least ten years ago. Now I almost give up hope. But it will be bugging me. So much desire of identifying. Things have to be identified. Obsession one might call it.

Anyone please give me any clue about the song. Like artists who would likely perform this kind of music. Just name one and I'll go on searching.

It reminds me a bit of Andreas Vollendweider, though the tune doesn't sound familiar to me (I'm only familiar with White Winds and Caverna Magica).

Bah, that should be Vollenweider

It reminds me of Mike Oldfield, who does play the harp. Vollenweider seems like a good guess too.

You know, I bet Oldfield is closer - it has that sort of peppiness that showed up on Tubular Bells 2.

Reminds me a lot of Enya.
