Overview

A splendid album from Robert Mirabal, here devoting himself to the traditional in terms of performance -- the focus is less on flute than on drum and voice, pulling the voice up out of the earth to draw the pictures that Mirabal wants you to see (this is particularly effective in "Extinction," where the destruction of a great herd of buffalo is painted in thundering sound.) Working in real time with Mirabal are drummer Reynaldo Lujan and tribal dancers Matt Andes and Mark Andes. Well worth finding just for the sheer sonic force Mirabal creates here.
