Jambodia

by Dr. Von Zuko

Sexy scintillating World Fusion music, Jambodia kicks it up a notch on the Richter Scale but with a lot of class. A way cool fix for the searing percussion, heavy bass junkie. A progressive dance and exercise favorite.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The CD: Jambodia is the first work in the Jambodia Trilogy. Jambodia is best described as world fusion with multi-ethnic, neo-classical, and techno-electronic flavorings all pumped up with some serious funk and a whole lot of attitude!

Jambodia carries a stimulating cadence throughout and is great for progressive or creative dance and aerobic exercise. It provides an energizing and up-lifting atmosphere that is stimulating but at the same time strangely calming.

The flavors: Jambodia is heavily influenced by progressive and modern musical styles; Classical, Jazz, Trance, World-beat and even some good ole' Rock n' Roll. The blend of cultural rhythms produced with ancient instruments and modern electrified melodies are sometimes subtle but frequently obvious. This unexpected blend works and imbues a intoxicating flavor to the Jambodia brew.

The Premise: The work is an energetic musical journey within the imaginary kingdom of Jambodia, a place where musical boundaries do not exist and the ancient and modern electronic rhythms blend and coexists to bring about an entirely new sound that is grounded in the distant past.

The Artist: Dr. Von Zuko is a bit of an enigma even to those relatively few people who believe they know him quite well. Frequently characterized as reclusive, the strange doctor has been known to spend days-on-end locked away in his studio, "The Temple of Digital Dreams." In the sanctity of this mysterious (and sound proof) technology laden lair, the doctor invokes the forces of both digital and ancient musical realms and his compositions materialize.

Discovering performing arts, music, and technology in his early adolescence, Von Zuko earned his first real recognition as a guitarist, vocalist, sometime percussionist, and keyboard jockey - in a fairly short list of popular rock, jazz, and even country groups. Roading and radio play was personally enriching back then (and a hell of a lot of fun); however, it was the desire to eat regularly and live under a weather-tight roof that drove Von Zuko toward the more 'life sustaining' digital technologies.

The rest (as they say) is history! So now, submitted for your amusement and entertainment, I give you Dr. Von Zuko; "Digital artist, musician, composer, computer practitioner, and self-proclaimed, ravenous archaeologist."

Hot new exciting sound
This is a new hot, excting sound. If you are tired of the usual ho-hum music this is the CD for you. It will put a spring in your step.

A Very Cool Discovery
I found this CD quite by accident using your search tool. I was intrigued by the samples (and the bizzare profile) so I snatched up the CD.

I must say this is quite well done. I love the energy of the songs, they are individually unique and intricate and quite stimulating. I think the first four tracks are esspecially hot! This is a great CD if you're making love, working out, driving an open road, or just chilling out!

First rate!

Paul Mozolewski

If you like Trace & Techno, GET THIS CD
First time i popped in the cd, I'm usually skipping to check out the entire CD, but not this one. Perfict mix of fast and slow pace music with soom mixing between beats. And there are two tracks on here for just the techno fans.

Overall A++, glad I got this CD.

Steve Miller

This CD is too cool! It really does kick it up a notch.
I rarely take the time to write reviews but, this CD is smokin’ and has such a unique personality to it, I felt I had to weigh in with a few words! Super energy, upbeat, powerful and quite imaginative. I’m not only impressed by the slick blend of musical genres and styles but the production values are top end too. If you have a serious stereo system, the clarity of instruments, crisp tempos, subtle cultural expression, and some amazingly deep bass passages will blow you away!

The really interesting part of this CD is that on many tracks the drums actually carry the melody. I’ve listened to it a dozen times already and I’m not the least bit tired of it yet. Like I said in the beginning, this one’s extremely cool.

Maya

Funky blend of genres with a really nice feel to it!
I must admit that I was a bit sceptical with all of the five star reviews on this CD, but in my opinion Jambodia earns them. Don't know what it is about this work but it has a really nice feel to it. It is on the funky side but pulls together several genres that make for a really cool and interesting blend. It's getting multiple spins at my house, which rarely happens for any CD.

Plug in... Jam...
Definitely a powerful blend of music and attitude... heavy cultural influences add to the flavor, and the overall Jambodia experience... Music enthusiasts will dig this one.
