CD Reviews

Sweet , poetic guitar and lovely vocals
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD was, and still is, profoundly influential on me, especially my acoustic guitar playing. I bought the CD a couple of years ago while visiting relatives for Christmas. A CD player wasn't available where I was staying, so I had to make do looking at the booklet and liner notes. Inside was listed the guitar tunings that were used. Without having heard the CD, I decided to try the tunings on an old guitar that was lurking in a corner. MY WHOLE WORLD AND HEART OPENED UP! Right then, I found my voice on guitar. Within half an hour I wrote two instrumental pieces. Returning home a week later, I finally heard this CD and realized how deeply I was touched by this music. All the players on this CD have brought me great joy. A beautiful compilation ranging from sweet, fingerpicked Malagasy guitar to classical influence to etoufee style electric guitar. JOHNNY's solo pieces on electric bass are really cool! This CD is wonderful for blissful late-night listening with the volume low."
An admittedly biased commentary...

"I produced this album in Madagascar and remain in contact with the artists, including the musicians on other albums from that expedition: Tarika Sammy's "Beneath Southern Skies," and "Resting Place of the Mists," a compilation focused on the valiha. I invite people to contact me directly about the project and the musicians."
