Album Notes
Ubaka is a fiery, passionate, and radiant drummer/ chanter/ singer whose performance builds bridges and transcends boundaries while elevating the spirits of all who hear -- her music is intensely woman-identified, life-loving, transformative, spiritual, and revolutionary, blending song, poetry, and rhythm into a heady brew. "Motherbeat" joyfully brings to life the exuberant imagery of women dancing down through the centuries; "Nightflight," an evocative performance piece which incorporates the chant "Spirit of the Wind," is a perfect vehicle for Ubaka's depth, artistry and grace; her intense rendition of the Jayne Cortez poem "If The Drum Is A Woman" will send chills down your spine; and her trademark "The Womyn United" is energetic & inspirational. Also includes percussion instrumentals for movement and dance. Warning: you'll experience an uncontrollable urge to join a drumming circle.
