Format: Audio CD
"Sabar drums are special. They are the royal drums of Senegal and are unique to the Senegambia region." ~A Wolof teacher

Shaman's Dream invites you into the world of nature sounds, primal chants, exotic rhythms and soul healing beats. African Dream is a fusion of African music and electronica with warm appeal.

Rakandao - Hearing the Wolof language of Senegal for the first time was a beautiful experience. Abdou Mbaye sings a blessing to his brother from the heart. I find it difficult to sit still while listening to this track, there is something very spiritual and healing about the way African music makes your body move. This track and track eight seem to especially inspire the body to move in unique ways.

Morani Warrior - A song about the rights of passage Masi boys go through when they enter manhood. Children laugh in the distance as men sing and seem to be controlling their breath in an interesting way. Sabar Drums (beautiful tall drum) and Bells appear on this track along with a Doun Doun, a double-ended wood bass drum.

Mbira Kosamdela - A song from Zaire that includes the fascinating delicate sounds of the Mbira, a thumb piano made with 22-28 metal keys mounted on wood from the mubvamaropa tree.

Losambo - The sounds of the sea appear with the beats of the Doun Doun creating an oceanic escape with waves washing through vocals by Dido Tshibangu and Donna DeLory. Together their voices create a spiritually reverent mood that is soft and sensual like the movement of the ocean on a calm day.

Je Je Vignin is a lullaby by the women in Benin Togo. It has a comforting and catchy beat with undercurrents of being soothed into sleep. The Okonkolo Cha is the smallest of the bata drums and produces high pitch tones.

I love love this CD for the beauty of the songs and the esthetic sensitivity of the two musicians (Jason Hann, Craig Kohland) who produced it and play in it. In the contradistinction to say, the insipid Buddha Bar series, Shaman's Dream put the native people and nature first. There are musical elements from all across Africa, from Senegalese, Zairean, Benin to Kenyan Maasai and Swahili motifs and the use of djembes (West Africa/Mali, dunun drums (ie, Sangban), talking drums from Nigeria, mbiras (Zimbabwe), the three bata drums (Yoruba) etc. A tremendous amount of work yet it is all under cover, supported by sparse drum & bass. This is amongst the best chill-out music I know but also very danceable if you like it smooth, sensuous and with a sense of humor. My favorite - probably the Mbira song (#3).

Makes me feel like I am "in" an African landscape. It is soothing, healing and energizing. From the soft tinkling of cattle bells and subdued voices of herds people, the low/deep intensify and ever-present thrumming of insects, wind,and water, to the intermittent sounds of water bison and melodic chants/laughter - I escape into the 'dream'. This is one of my background pieces when I go to the studio to paint. Love it.
