About the Album
(back to top)

We see with a global eye, we feel with a global skin, we hear with a global ear.

We travel, we hear new melodies and strange rhythms, we sense other ways of thinking: nothing is foreign anymore. we step outside of the air-conditioned hotel; wandering into the back-alleys of the first, second and third worlds; stumbling upon a thousand culture clashes.

We hear with a global ear.

One that believes in combining traditional, undiluted musical forms - rhythms, structures, melodies - to create something new, something passionate, something 'catchy', 'funky' and even beautiful; without the usual safety nets for the western ear. we've travelled enough, we've heard enough, we don't need them anymore.

One that knows that no single musical form can capture every possible emotion: strength, passion, sadness, joy, longing: but that music derives from a single source: creative expression shaped by tradition.

Traditions to bend and shape, each strand intact but weaving new colours, new images, and new sounds.
