All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The dhol is a large hand-held drum that's deep, ringing tone is a key component of bhangra, a traditional Punjabi folk music that has itself grown and mutated into one of the key elements of London's Asian underground dance music scene. You hear the dhol thundering and rippling beneath singles by such eminent Asian underground artists as Talvin Singh, Joi, and the Asian Dub Foundation, and also in the music of the Afro Celt Sound System, whose drummer moonlights as a master teacher of the dhol and runs a school called the Dhol Foundation. Recording here for the first time under that moniker, Johnny Kalsi delivers a fascinating and funky program of modern dance music that ...

The dhol is a large hand-held drum that's deep, ringing tone is a key component of bhangra, a traditional Punjabi folk music that has itself grown and mutated into one of the key elements of London's Asian underground dance music scene. You hear the dhol thundering and rippling beneath singles by such eminent Asian underground artists as Talvin Singh, Joi, and the Asian Dub Foundation, and also in the music of the Afro Celt Sound System, whose drummer moonlights as a master teacher of the dhol and runs a school called the Dhol Foundation. Recording here for the first time under that moniker, Johnny Kalsi delivers a fascinating and funky program of modern dance music that draws heavily on bhangra and other Indian influences while at the same time keeping the ambience pleasant and dreamy. Occasionally things get just a little bit too pleasant and a little too dreamy, and the music teeters dangerously on the edge of soporific new age-ism. But that happens rarely, and just when you think you're going to fall asleep -- during the first two and a half minutes of "Iridian," for example -- Kalsi snaps you back to attention with a funky breakbeat or a bracing splash of frantic drum'n'bass. If you're an Asian Dub Foundation fan, you might find Big Drum: Small World a bit on the tame side; but if you love Afro Celt Sound System and Joi, this album will stay in your CD player for days.

    The Transcendental Beat of a Drum....

    No matter where on earth you come from, this instrument (the dhol) will make you want to move every inch of your body. The people of the northern Indian state of Punjab have long enjoyed its mesmerizing and entrancing rhythms, but now, thanks to the hard work of Johnny Khalsi and The Dhol Foundation, more people across the globe have a chance to experience the extremely powerful effect of this instrument. The dhol drum forms the backbone of Bhangra music and is one of the key reasons for the genre's success on the dancefloors of the UK, Canada and the US. This album celebrates the instrument by staying true to its vibrant and robust energy but also demonstrates its versatility, by incorporating transient and "New Age" sounds.
