Wonderful drumming, makes your feet move and your spirit fly. Great for listening, dancing and meditating


A Must have
exellent music selections that inspire movement. Long tracks that work great for the dance class and evokes the feeling of live accompaniment. A must have for all dancers, dance teachers and music lovers.


Tribalistic Treasure
Powerful rhythms that bring to life the beauty of this garden of percussion. My favorite cut is Seasonal Fire. It\'s amazing interwoven polyrhythms are hypnotic. Great Drumming!!
