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)

Drum Trance reviewed by Music Design

A cross-cultural collage of tribal rhythms is served up in this homage to the intoxicating pulse of the drum from Music Mosaic. From clubby to organic, these infectious grooves will certainly get your adrenaline pumping. Beginning with a turbo-charged dose of electrified African rhythm and chant, the album propels you through some Mediterranean-flavored vibes from Arto Tuncboyaciyan, a walk on the shamanic side from Gabrielle Roth and the Mirrors, thunderous beats from pan-Asian percussionist Ruben Van Rompaey, some dramatic, ambient-flecked rhythms from Professor Trance and much more. Fueled with energy and destined to make you want to move, DRUM TRANCE takes you around the world and back, to the beat of a drum.
