Overview

Like other Rough Guide compilations, indeed most compilations in general, for outward appearances this package is very unassuming. However, inside is a veritable treasure or world music rhythms. Feel the deep grooves of Migerian Fuji dub. Sense the trance-inducing powers of Ghanian ceremonial drumming. Reinhard Flatischler brings together master drummers from different continents and cultures in Megadrums. Megadrums is present here with one track. On this globe-spanning disk, the African-Cuba Santeria religion and compelling Yoruba chants form the basis of "Sin Palabras." The intricate drum and percussion patterns displayed here by the shrinking world percussion ensembles present is nothing short of amazing. Close and repeated listening to these singular tracks rewards in discoveries and new levels of appreciation. Abandoning common time for exotic tempos, multiple musicians layer their rhythms into sonic mosaics of stunning complexity.
