Album Notes
"Poi for Gadje" is a percussive journey of an eastern styled drum troop with voices of haunting and firey drums singing the textures of ancient rhythms. The vision is of tribal dancing and fire swirling around shadowy figures in the night. All hand drums are played by David Macejka and the track names are the names of the rhythms used on that track, so it's a good way to get acquainted with these traditional rhythms.

I first heard this cd at a jewelry store in Tucson, AZ called the Silver Sea. The owner of the shop ("Liz") played it at an artist gathering she holds in her shop.

At first thought I was reminded of the band Crash Worship, whos work I enjoy, so I was immediately pleased; What ever happened to those guys?. Most of "Poi for Gadje" throbs with energy and is probably best suited for dancing or convulsing and I don't do either on a regular basis. So, I usually listen to the cd when I'm working around the house but I think it's good music to paint to as well. I was most taken by the last three instrumentals on the CD as they are more ambient and rich making them more well suited as an atmospheric aid for gatherings and such. Over all I'm pleased with my purchase.

Thanks to David Macejka (However you pronounce the last name) I dig your beats man.
Thanks to "Liz" Mead at Silver Sea in Tucson for turning me on to it and thanks to CD Baby for the promp delivery and excellent service.


Poi for Gadje
Love this music!


Outstanding drums & beats
I love it! This are top-of-the-line beats to get your code on to. If you like the drums, you've gotta like this.

My grandchildren thought this was fantastic-so did I
This music is fantastic. You can't sit still and listen


I love it!
It's very Kakkoii(=cool, in Japanese)!


Glad I own it!
Ansuya Rathor taught a choreography at Rakkasah East 2006 to track one so I bought the CD. I am definitely going to use other music from it as well! It has variety in tempos, sound, and energy. You will NOT regret buying this CD

Earth Energy!
The drumming on this is great! If you dance, you will want this one on your iPOD.


This CD is awesome!d From the minute I put it on I could not stop shaking & danc
This Poi for Gadje CD is great! I could not stop dancing, doing shimmies, and shaking my hips from the minute I put it on. The music and drum sounds, just get into you...the only way to get the energy out is by feeling and dancing to these great rhythms. I LOVE IT !


High energy
I'm not even a dancer, and I love this CD. The opening track, in particular, is vibrant and energizing. It's surprising what a range of sound David has produced. I don't know much about playing music, but the sound is definitely richer and warmer than I thought an all-drumming recording could be.

I highly recommend this, even if you're not very familiar with the genre, as I'm not. I think anyone could enjoy this music.
