This album, inspired by nature, contains music that will help you transcend into a deeper, more spiritual place.
The composer/performer, Mr. Morales-Matos, used percussion instruments from all over the world: Asia, the Middle East, the Americas, Africa, the Caribbean and Europe to create an incredible combination of colors that imitates the sounds of nature. The music is full of emotions that can be interpreted by listeners as their own.
The intricate layers of rhythm and sound are so perfectly woven together that each time you listen you will find and follow a new part.
Enjoy the fantastic sounds of the music: "From the Earth - Drumming with the Hang".
"After listening to the Rolando Morales-Matos CD 'From the Earth', I was stunned by the musicianship, the compositions, the fantastic recorded sound, and the quality of the performance. Bravo Mr. Morales-Matos!"
- Ron Carter - jazz legend
"This magnificent work will take the listener on a truly emotional journey. Rolando’s original compositions and his mastery of the hang drum have set a new standard for solo percussion recordings."
- Tommy Igoe - Birdland Big Band
