'Didgeridoo Groove' is the latest album to be released by world music label 'Music Mosaic' and with the emphasis this time on our national instrument - the didgeridoo, this album will make you sit up and take notice.
Having put together a collection of rhythmic workouts, Didgeridoo players Ariel Kalma, Ed Dury, Gary Cannell, Charlie McMahon, Steven Cragg, Adam Henwood, Jimmy, Alastair Black, Simon 7 and Kailash are joined by tribal drummers, percussionists, keyboardists and captivating vocalists to celebrate tradition, the modern day and mother nature.
With a booming bass here and an acidic tweak there, each track on this album grows to reveal more of the diversity and the mystery that surrounds the didgeridoo. As eye opening as it is hugely inspiring, 'Didgeridoo Groove' will engage all of your senses from beginning to end and as difficult as it may be to choose a stand out track 'Intuvalation' by Didjworks found me experiencing electronica in a whole new light.
Ironically, as artists today struggle to discover new sounds and re-captivate a disgruntled audience, Music Mosaic has done so with the oldest instrument in the world, and they have never sounded better.
