Overview

Global Beat Fusion

The History of the Future of Music

Words & Pix by Derek Beres

Foreword by Ajay Naidu

"Derek Beres is part reporter and part prophet standing in the middle of the eye of the World Music storm that is raining new musical genres on the Earth today, each one fused by the love of song and spirit."

--Krishna Das, kirtan artist

"I met Derek Beres as a writer interested in shedding light on what was happening in the world of future music. I know him now as a major force pushing this scene in all directions. He has gone so far deep inside that he has become exactly what he writes about. He will forget to write one chapter of this book and that is the one about himself."

--Karsh Kale, tabla player/DJ/producer

"Derek Beres is a modern-day shaman. He knows new hybrids of electronic and non-Western music deliver the same ecstatic release as ancient tribal rituals of so-called primitive societies, and that the implications go far beyond an ambient groove. For Beres, the fusion of technology and ritual, the reconciliation of mind, body and spirit that electronic world music represents, is not just the cutting edge of modern entertainment but the early stages of a numinous revolution in American culture. In Global Beat Fusion he explains why music is the new religion, and how, in one sense or another, we are all destined to become believers."

--Guy Garcia, author of The New Mainstream: How the Multicultural Consumer is Transforming American Business

    Outstanding, Informative and Comprehensive

    Talk about having your finger on the pulse! Derek Beres has both hands and feet on it. Beres dives deep into the world music world and makes a compelling case for his thesis that the music we will be listening to in the future (and many of us are already listening--and dancing--to) will belong to no single national or culture but instead will be a true global fusion of influences, styles, attitudes and, of course, sounds. Beres explains the relationship of the traditional to the progressive, puts the music into its proper spiritual and cultural perspective and, most of all, brings it to life with vivid descriptions and poignant insights. No dry hype-filled treatise on the latest pop trends, Global Beat Fusion is a living, breathing guide to a place we haven't yet been but will be visiting very soon.
