Where the Rain Is Born

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Here is a dynamic worldbeat release from this Bay Area percussionist working in partnership with synthesist Peter Scaturro. From evocative, impressionistic dreamscapes to bass-heavy polyrhythmic stomps, this album surprises and engages the listener throughout with its grand-scale synthesizer coloring and dense layers of percussive sounds. The album ends with the superb title track, a neo-African chant in honor of the rain, where his raindrop percussion masterfully builds over the hypnotic lilt of the male and female voices. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats
