by Rachel Bagby

A fragrant world fusion of rhythmically-rich chants. Formerly of Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra, Rachel serves up chants as dance music, chants of the earth, chants for daughters, for healing, for birth, with virtuoso percussionists and vocalists.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"...powerful chants of praise and affirmation."-Ysaye M. Barnwell, Sweet Honey in the Rock

From the Artist...

The rhythmically rich, original chants on FULL were born in sacred places: redwood forests, Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, inside the hearts and minds of daughters learning to dance and give voice to Life's power...

"Vibralingual" is the word I coined for my living, composing and singing. My method and message: our voices have the power to help us amplify and embody wisdom. FULL contains 11 vibralingual chants of a lifetime that invite you to sing along and reclaim your voice.
--Rachel Bagby

"Most dramatically, the crisp and measured drumming on "How Do You Love?" highlights a question that, if asked repeatedly of ourselves, and answered honestly, might lead to the abolition of bigotry and violence worldwide."-LP, Sing Out

"No matter in what mood I come to this music, I am always uplifted, satisfied, thrilled and amazed, and remade, whole again. "Planetary" describes the varying flavors, though it steps beyond this too, in honoring life and all her visions."-Lina Goodyear, Reviewer

"Vocalist/composer Rachel Bagby is surely in league with the angels. Her debut album, Full, combines chant, African tribal rhythms, and jazz to create hymns of extraordinary power and beauty. You'll want to sing and stomp along-and you're supposed to. The album is a joyful celebration of life-don't miss it." ****-Susan A Segrest and Stephanie von Hirschberg, NEW WOMAN

FULL is filled with the generous and renowned talents of Voicestra's extended family: Producer Linda Tillery, Engineer Howard Johnston (of Different Fur and Windham Hill fame), percussionists John Santos and Peter Michael, cellist Joseph Hébert and vocalists Joey Blake, Darlene Coleman, Raz Kennedy, Melanie Rath, Linda Tillery, and David Worm.

Thanks be to Ned Hearn, Felicia Ward, and Bobby McFerrin for being the catalysts that brought us together.
--Rachel Bagby

"Describing Bagby's voice would tax a thesaurus; it's rich, mellow, fiery, limber, as resonant as a cello and sweet as a flute. It's the kind of voice that has brought [thousands of] people roaring to their feet; it's remarkable, and it's used to perfection to create music with roots reaching back to the ancient cultures of Asia, Africa, and North America."-NEW AGE RETAILER

Spirited and spritual at the same time.
There was not one selection on this CD that I did not like.
You could silently meditate on one cut, and listen to the next one while thoroughly cleaning your house. The spirits were definetly speaking through these voices.
Why haven't we heard more from her?

Original, moving, life affirming music--and it jams!
This is a beautiful and moving CD. What is great about Rachel Bagby's music is that it is vocal music that is simultaneously spriritual and contemplative AND deeply rhythmic and grounded. You want to pray and jam at the same time. It's hard to describe, but it's a musical experience that is incredibly unique. I also really like her voice, the complement of voices, and the light but cool instrumental backup on the different tracks. These people can sing! I think this is a great CD.
