About Concept of the album:
This album was inspired by a trip to Ghana Africa in 1999.
I was introduced to beautiful and intense African Music and totally wanted to express my appreciation and love of African music.
From #1 through #8, I have tried to resemble history of the earth. Start with a primitive sound and evolve to a high technology present. I hope you can relate to the change of musical history through my music. I recommend you to listen from Track 1 to 8 without skipping the tracks.
I truly appreciate all my friends who have inspired me to finish this album.
