"I don't know why Amazon or Brent Lewis don't put little samples of any of these incredible ORGANICALLY WELL-PRODUCED CDs for people to listen to; they'd sure sell a lot more copies that way! Anyway, if anyone out there reading this trusts the taste of yours truly in all the other shinola I've recommended, this is pretty much a RISK-FREE recording, very few people dislike it (none that I know of under 40) and most people are quite blown away by its absorbing 'environment' (and for any crafty bachelors out there trying to impress their new girlfriends, yes, this is one of them records!). What is it? It's an excellent totally ambient, and believe it or not incredibly relaxing, DRUM record of world and African rhythms! Anyone who's read my reviews knows that i hate yuppie-world-music of any kind, that is watered down semi-ethnic (and quite often disco) music that's like conveniently packaged tourism on plastic to make a yuppie feel well-travelled and above 'the vulgar rabble' without actually disturbing yuppie pre-rogatives of money-making-function in any way. Well, this is one of those rare yuppie-crossover records that unfortunately yuppies may also like, and won't get you any points for being a rebel, but which is nevertheless DEFINITELY HIP enough to pass my test of what I will allow in my CD player. I first heard this guy's music a couple of summers ago pumping out of some weird store on Venice Beach, and it made such an instant impression on me that I bought it and another (even more impressive but not available for some reason) called "Jungle Moon" right on the spot. Anyway, I just wanted to make all the media-hypnotized drones out there who still have a brain cell or two that thinks on its own aware of this guy, he makes damn good friggin' records!"

"This is the music you hear in episode 2 of the series. If this doesn't make you want to get up and move then you need a rythum transplant."
Good beats, okay for dancing

"I purchased this CD for belly dancing. The beats are good, easy to dance to, and provide something different than the average doumbec drumming. This has different sounds in it - all percussion - which provide some variety. I found some of the beats a little too juvenile sounding, though, to do a provocative dance like belly dance to ALL the numbers on this album. But I think there are three or four that are good to dance to."
