Mr. Beres has always had his finger on the pulse of what's happening. His story of the future of music is still coming true. I bought two copies for friends.

I loved it! I bought 4 and gave them out to friends for MY birthday! One can literally hear the music in Beres' words as he lyrically weaves a seamless mix of myth, music and ritual...Hit Play...Read on...The Global Beat journey has just begun...

Format: Paperback
Talk about having your finger on the pulse! Derek Beres has both hands and feet on it. Beres dives deep into the world music world and makes a compelling case for his thesis that the music we will be listening to in the future (and many of us are already listening--and dancing--to) will belong to no single national or culture but instead will be a true global fusion of influences, styles, attitudes and, of course, sounds. Beres explains the relationship of the traditional to the progressive, puts the music into its proper spiritual and cultural perspective and, most of all, brings it to life with vivid descriptions and poignant insights. No dry hype-filled treatise on the latest pop trends, Global Beat Fusion is a living, breathing guide to a place we haven't yet been but will be visiting very soon.
