Album Notes
THE BEAT ... Vol. 25, No. 1, 2006 - March Issue

"The second album from New York multi-instrumentalist Anne Pollack, Diaspora Pulse (Magica Axe Music) is a very stimulating set of songs. Anne's connection to Brazilian music is very strong, through travel, study and collaboration with Brazilian musicians. Her reverent approach to Candomble rhythms weds nicely with her virtuoso performances on flutes, cello and vocals. A highly spiritual, free-form jazz excursion."
~ Mara Weiss and Nego Beto


Diaspora are considered to be peoples scattered from their homelands...which describes nearly all of human experience and ancestry.

In music we can find both the map and the voice of the human heart and soul.



"DIASPORA PULSE" tells a musical tale of people scattered from their homelands.

With cello, flutes (bamboo, ceramic, penny whistles, concert and alto flutes), percussion, keyboards, vocals and spoken word...there is a weaving together of the worlds of Haiti, Cuba, Brazil and the French West Indies...the the vast loom of Jazz grooves.

Touched by elements of Brazilian Samba, Haitian Vodou, Afro-Cuban Santeria Chants and Incantations of Guadeloupe, she has expressed the soul of those who suffered displacement...and made themselves whole again with music. And, in telling these musical tales, she tells her own story.

In the musical poetry of "Diaspora Pulse," Anne H. Pollack has let the songs play through her, as she participates in the process of this ever-emerging musical expression. An instrumentalist and songwriter with vast experience, her concept has been more deeply enhanced by her talent as a producer.

Lose yourself in these rich tracks. You might just, in the process, find yourself there.

** A portion of the proceeds of this CD will be donated to the to aid the victims of the hurricanes of 2005.**

Real World Music
Wow !! This is World Music at its finest. This music has to come from beautiful spirit, seeing all of the world as one. A must have. Good from the first note to the last.

D. Alexander

The inner soul of the sound of the spheres. Awesome!
Leonard Bernstein once said "In the beginning…was the note. And the note was God. And whosoever could reach for that note, reach high and bring it back to us on Earth…."

With Diaspora Pulse, Anne H. Pollack has certainly done her job! She shares with all of us, lucky enough to hear it, the inner soul of the sound of the spheres. Awesome!


Brilliant! A Celebration of the Soul!
In celebrating the souls of the diaspora, Anne H. Pollack, in this brilliant new CD, celebrates the soul of each of us... speaking to my heart and spirit on so many different levels, bringing joy and laughter as well as tears. The richness of this music inspires me to the depths of my being, drawing on that essential pulse we all share...
