Will get you up dancing and keep you there!
The project’s concept from its inception was to create music that would move you!
It is composed, remixed and mastered specifically for dancing, with lots of spicy “World Music” flavors all spiced up with lots of percussion pepper!!!
The rhythm and intensity build throughout the CD, reaching a climax on track eight with “Tribal-1”, followed by a sweet cool down with “Tribute to Africa” and “Till we Dance Again”. All tracks are approx. 5 minutes or longer to give you plenty of time to get your groove on and are remixed so that the beat doesn’t stop from one song to the next.
If you like World Beat music, dancing, drumming or just want some uplifting music for the gym, car or ipod, then FIRE is for you.
