Electronic world music?,
This review is from: Different Space (Audio CD)
Bob Holroyd has crafted an outstanding CD that combines the influences of world music (influences that sound like they come from all over the globe!) with the nuanaces and subtleties available in electronic music. The rhythms and percussion really stand out in nearly every track, and they're remarkably different on every track. The first track and "African Drug" are African-influenced fast-moving fly-bys, while "Adrift in Kerala" and "Something Understood" are more Asian trance. "Earthwatching", my favorite, is unlike everything else on the CD - mysterious and purely electronic. The vocals on the CD are sparse yet effective, and each track will grab you in its own way. A great CD!
