Overview

Not exactly the most radio-friendly act in the world, Transglobal Underground goes for a highly adventurous and quirky blend of club and world music on the rhythmic Rejoice, Rejoice. Underground has a very East-meets-West outlook -- dance music, reggae, electronica, funk, and hip-hop are combined with elements of Indian, Middle Eastern, and African music. Synthesizers and keyboards are prominent, but the high-tech element is combined with everything from Indian tabla drums and sitar to the saz, a string instrument associated with traditional Turkish music. Not surprisingly, Rejoice, Rejoice was ignored by commercial radio, although some club DJs realized just how much Underground had going for it. For broad-minded listeners looking for something out of the ordinary, this CD is quite an adventure.
