CD REVIEW: Drumming Planet
By Ben Ohmart - 02/15/2003 - 07:36 PM EST

Artist: Compilation: Drumming Planet
CD Review: World trance? Yes.

Drumming Circle – Professor Trance
Invocation – Gabrielle Roth and the Mirrors
Keonukpo – Adesa
The Prodigal Son – Keiya
The Shisha Room – Solace
Utsheva – Baul Bishwa
Sister’s Gonna Dance Now – Native Ground
The Owl Dance – Gomer Edwin Evans
Talking Drums – Ariel Kalma
Samhain – Phil Thornton

Those are the ancient grooves coming at you from the south pacific, Africa, Ireland, India, Native America and other intriguing locales.

As you might expect by the name, the hook of this 55 minute cd is rhythm. Entrancing in a trance-like dance beat, all worlds collide into something intensely moving, in more ways than a pun. Instruments like log, dhol, pony, jun-jun, tablas, derbuka and other keen Scrabble scores make this bouncy soundtrack a real keeper.

And why not? Music Mosaic is one of the finest labels around for this 22nd century world beat.
