Quote by Jean Houston

Next is now, world music as the single most potent force in the culture of fusion ... World music-makers are like shamans, carrying us on magic carpets of riffs and melodies through states of consciousness that spin us out of time to lands not yet invented but glimpsed on the aural horizon ... And so we see that music brings us, in the jumping of our cells, from what is past to what is trying to become the future. lt expresses and fulfills our need to hear the spirit in the dark.
(Jean Houston in Jump Time, Sentient Publ. 2004)

Didgeridoo Groove reviewed by Music Design

Music Mosaic is uniting the Australian outback with club culture once again on DIDGERIDOO GROOVE. As can be expected from the title, the didgeridoo takes center stage on each of these eleven tracks, whose influences range from jazzy funk to the Asian Underground. This tribal adventure includes the likes of Steven Cragg, with his primordial-sounding "Little People" as well as Soulfood with the mysterious "Chamber 11" from their Wingmakers project. "Taralinga Lila" from Tarshito/Sangeet swirls a little Indian mysticism into the mix, while "Kokopelli Dreaming" from Kailash crosses the Pacific and provides a Native American/didgeridoo hybrid. The Outback never sounded so funky!

Didgeridoo Groove reviewed by Mara Applebaum: from Sounds From the Ground Up

On the compilation album Didgeridoo Groove, artists from all over the world offer tracks to create a funkadelic tribute to the ancient didgeridoo. Best among them are Gondwana's "Shade," a percussion-heavy piece with great programming, and the blissfully unadulterated "Crooked," featuring three didgeridoos in a match with three percussion instruments, by Orocol. Several of the artists use samples of indigenous vocals or the real thing.

From techno to aboriginal, listeners will find a full range of didgeridoo selections here. The didgeridoo undoubtedly is one of my favorite rhythmic instruments. If you cater to customers who appreciate world and electronica music, Didgeridoo Groove will be a good album to spotlight. The funky, colorful booklet cover art will grab attention, too!
