What's more, guitar players who thought they'd heard it all will be inspired by the terrific melodic style of these stupendous axemen..

This is the best authentic tribal music collection that I have ever heard! Whereas most of today's tribal is found to be only inspired by authentic tribal music and corrupted by outside influences, this is the REAL THING. This CD is a collection of field recordings of everyday people playing their music in the process of performing their sacred rituals. ( a Listener from Charleston, West Virginia, USA)
