1 Giant Leap

"A drummer calling in Senegal will be answered in Dehli, then a call from New York will be answered in Ghana, all mixed together with other rhythms creeping in, one global pulse."

This best describes 1 Giant Leap, one of the best compelation CD's I have heard this year. Rhythms and beats from various ancient cultures mixed with modern beats. Just bought the CD
the other day and it has given me a great intro to some areas of World Music. Other than Celtic music, I havent got into World Music until recently and it really is absolutely amazing.

I really do recommend this CD peoples...also has guest vocals by Michael Stipe and Robbie Williams among many.

The Way You Dream is the Michael Stipe song if you want to download it for a tester

PS - I just checked out the website and Brian Eno seems to have something to do with it too.

hello Aurora, I didn't see your previous thread sorry, but was hoping to find you. I wonder if you'll come back here? I was thinking of you yesterday when I was listening to the radio. Did you know there has been a CORONAL MASS EJECTION!!!?.... There has , indeed!A really really big one. And it has created fabulous AURORAS.....but you need to be in Tasmania to see them Just thought I'd tell you that.
Sorry to hijack your thread there bono_man.

One of the modules in the contemporary music course is world music.The man that teaches that class has a nice collection of CD's, I'll suggest he buy the one you mentioned ...and then lend it to me.

Ok...its been a few days since I got the CD and I have put in some hard listening...I think this is the best compilation CD released so far this year. Oh...and its put together by the guy from Faithless with help from all sorts of people.

For a taste download:

The Way You Dream (with Michael Stipe and Asha Bhosle)

Passion (with Michael Franti)

Braided Hair (with Speech and Neneh Cherry)

Thanks so much Cass- I didn't know about that- glorious Auroras!!! I dont think I can get down to Tassie so I think I will go surfing the net for some nice pics- one day I will get to see the Australis with my own eyes hopefully
