"Meant to be listened to with an open mind and an open heart, this is rewarding music with a singular theme...unity of mind, body, and spirit. At times transcendental and other times dancefloor-hypnotic, Soulfood is aptly named. Maybe not the best thing for your next party, but certainly the best thing for the next rainy night when all you want to do is stare out the window. Or the next sunny day when all you want to do is bask in the glory of a beautiful day."

"This gets classified as "world music" in most places, but BREATHE is an attempt to synthesize most of the musics of old aboriginal cultures and dig up the common root of human music. What results is a compelling, hypnotic force that reminds you of many "primitive" musics but isn't exactly like any of them. This is music for dreaming, meditating, altering your consciousness thru sound, time travel and astral projection, and the suspension of reality. Simple power, powerful simplicity. Drums and chants and drones and exotic things that will transport you if you let them."

"When I first played this CD, I thought it would just be another one to add to my "one play wonders" shelf. You know the shelf I mean. The one full of CD's that you bought without really listening to them, only to realize that you actually would rather break them over your knee than listen to them again, but you just paid 17.00 for it so you show restraint.
Surprisingly, this CD has now moved to my top shelf. This is now my favorite CD. The chants are haunting. The drum beats and dance tracks get into your bones and the music awakens something in your soul. I play it every chance I get and everyone who hears it comments on how unique the music is. If you don't like it the first couple of times, don't give up. I promise you, this one is a keeper!"
