Album Notes
"Kali Ma teaches us to laugh at our fears and dance through the fires in our lives. Kali Ma teaches us that death is an integral part of life. The fallen fruit decomposes in the winter and fertilizes new life in the spring. Kali Ma teaches us of the universal source of creation and destruction." Alan Scott Bachman

"Great Music for Moments of Passion, December 24, 2008
I bought this album years ago while looking for appropriate music while in those moments of passion with the one you love. Quite simply, this is awesome music to have on while making love. Everyone I have played this for has been very impressed and pleased." Customer review on Amazon.Com, 12/2008

"One of the most contemporary-sounding devotional Goddess recordings we've heard. The artists call it New Age Tribal Fusion.) The title chant is soothing yet full of contained energy, while Rhea Kronia is all vibrant movement. Recommended!" ~ As reviewed by Ladyslipper

Kali Ma Artist: Desert Wind Label: Alan Scott Bachman ­ Released: 1992 "The epitome of 'New Age Belly Dance Music', this is a great 'fusion music' CD. This is ethereal, and beautiful. Great for veil work. I especially like the Chiftitelli (Isis) track - really nice sounds. This is heavy on the synthesizer and contains mostly 'goddess' type music with big Middle Eastern influence. Mostly instrumental but some songs are sung in English. Many dancers use this music in restaurants and on stage. I have not listened to Desert Wind's other CDs but I have heard good things. ~ Aziza Nawal (

"If you've ever seen someone dancing to New Age music with an underlying Middle Eastern rhythm, it's likely that person was using music by Desert Wind. This band has produced several CDs, and Kali Ma is the one that I find best suited to performing Oriental dance. Although a couple of the songs in this collection are traditional Middle Eastern songs (Habena and Mastom), most of them are original compositions by Alan Bachman based on underlying rhythms such as chiftetelli, maqsoum, and karsilama." ~ Shira,

"The artists call what they do 'New Age Tribal Fusion.' Whatever - it's got a great beat and you can dance to it!"
~ The Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS)

"KALI MA: DANCES FOR TRANSFORMATION, from Alan Bachman's project Desert Wind, offers a selection of Middle Eastern dance rhythms with a contemporary twist. The album is themed after the pagan goddess Kali Ma, who encompasses the three aspects of Goddess spirituality: the virgin, the maiden and the crone. The study of this particular deity helps one to use knowledge and inner strength to combat daily fears and anxiety over one's mortality. Bachman's music features traditional acoustic instruments (flutes, tabla, other percussion instruments) alongside synthesizer textures and chant for a sound that inspires devotion in the listener. The album features nearly seventy minutes of music of varying tempos and styles, perfect for recreational listening as well as exotic dance." As reviewed by Silverlake Music.

I can see why this was voted the best selling CD in Germany...It is by far one of the best CD's I have listened to on Tribal Fusion style music...Awesome, Fantastic, are just a few words to describe it..A CD that every bellydancer must own.The music takes you on a musical journey of self discovery.

A friend gave me this as a cassette tape many years ago. I played it in my car's tape player until it literally wore out--I despaired of ever finding a replacement copy. It's my fave for an emotional rebalance & energy recharge during the drive home after a tough day...singing along with the windows rolled up...

Breathtaking Exotic Music for Dance & Meditation!
Not only is there a complete dance sequence at the end of this CD, but the music will take you to a higher level. This music moves me and was obviously meant to soothe and invigorate at the same time, if you can imagine that! Many thanks to the artists for passionate music like this.
