Made By Hand
This CD was produced from an unplanned and unannounced live recording. Although the band was unaware of being recorded, the natural communication between musicians and high level of performance energy was clearly captured. Jazz Latino, Mambo, Bembe, and Son Montuno represents healing energy, meditation and medicine encoded as music. Yoga as sound. When musicians listen and communicate with each other and their audience on a spiritual level, the music becomes much more than a performance.
