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 Trance dance - DVD - reviewed by Melanie: Latenite
Nothing less than spectacular can be said for this pumpin visual music DVD from our friends at Music Mosiac. Kaleidoscopic images of the gorgeous Australian landscape and wildlife teamed with trance-E visuals of people at play (dancing, loving and trancing) make this DVD more than just a music video release. As a practising Remote Viewer, I find Didgeridoo Trance Dance a nice preparation tool engaging the theta and delta rhythms and the use of binaural beats to reach the right mind set prior to RV practise.
The mesmerizing tunes lend to a very handy music utility not only for dance but focusing disciplines, delta meditation practise and of course recreational or social gatherings.
Didgeridoo Trance Dance brings forth a superb representation of Australian culture and the mysterious powers of our indigenous peoples. Grab this CD ASAP!
