Inner Journeys: Myth + Legends is an album by German cross-cultural new-age band Cusco, released in 2003. The album peaked at #6 on the Billboard Top New Age albums chart.[2]

With this album, the band simultaneously explores new territory by covering Greek Mythology with its musical concepts, and also revisits a more classic Cusco sound by reintroducing the flute sounds of the early years (Water Stories) and the strings, guitars, and atmospheres of their mid-career commercial high points of Cusco 2000 and Apurimac II. Sonically, this album does continue to develop a very natural-sounding instrumentation that began to appear with Ancient Journeys, though it uses them to create a more mysterious vibe than that of the previous album. Also, Inner Journeys utilizes occasional backing vocals in a style previously unexplored by the band, giving this album a unique flavor among Cusco albums.
