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)

Drumming Planet reviewed by EDF: Phase9 Entertainment

Another 2003 release from the champion of all that is world music, Music Mosaic, who are back with a brave compilation that really captures their motto "the pulse of global harmony". For those who are not familiar with the Music Mosaic series, the compilers track down the best that world music artists have to offer.

This unique series aims to mix the traditional with the modern and the results have so far not been disappointing. Using beats as the main theme for this release DRUMMING PLANET could sound tribal and primitive but with a sprinkling of modern technology, we have another enjoyable set of tunes.

As always, a lot of work has been put in compiling these tracks and as with most compilations there will be some tracks that will disappoint but overall, this is another quality release from the Music Mosaic label.
