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)

Tribal Rocks! reviewed on iTunes Australia:

Highly recommended! Tribal music at its best in a dance party. The tracks flow into each other seamlessly and create a journey to trance on. I recognised rhythms and melodies from several countries but the modern production could be from anywhere. What a great CD!
