More Than Alive
Didginus' second CD, 'More Than Alive,' was released in January, 1999. This CD is a live recording that features the same variety of ethnic ambience and danceable beats as the band's debut disc, 'Into the Soul,' and adds Indian flavor with the addition of special guest Tony Karasek on sitar, tabla, and bass guitar. The words of Jelalludin Rumi, as translated by Coleman Barks, make a return appearance on this CD, providing the keynote address of sorts in the opening track, 'Community of the Spirit.' Upbeat Didginus favorites like 'Gadia Celebration' and 'Chant Jemima' return on this disc in new spiced-up versions, alongside three new band tunes and two new solos, for didgeridoo and tabla.
