CD Reviews

Native cultures celebrated where their heartbeats overlap.
Alison Andrews | Manhattan | 12/23/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Indigineous music is hard to listen to sometimes because it is, by definition, specific to a native culture. Imagine, then, blending two radically different cultures' music together. Irish and Tibetan. Hopi and Polish. The combinations are bizarre. But the effect is a musical education of the best kind: With each song, I hear something more than just sound... I hear the celebration of diversity. None of that "he doesn't love me" junk lyrics -- this music captures the heartbeat of cultures. The Anglo-centrism of American music is ended. The world is merging, and this music gives us a clue to how beautiful it can be."
Vibrant world fusion
Terry Dolorosa | Concord, CA USA | 12/19/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Superbly conceived and vibrant. All God's children contribute. Everything from Norwegians a capella through Afro-Latin and German techno to.... gulp.... Tibetan throat music. The world at your feet... er... ears."
