produced by Kip Hanrahan
recorded July 1979-February 1981
"Put succinctly, this is one of the most daring, innovative records we've heard in years... A remarkable, seamless essay on the possibilities of a world music. A milestone. The Best Record of the Year" (1981)
"Once in a blue moon, a new record will stick out, I'll play it again and again. I'll call friends with similar tastes and interests and play it for them. And once I've listened to the album a dozen times or so, all of the accumulated frustration from listening to mundane products will have somehow been eased. Kip Hanrahan's coup de tete is such an album.
-Atlanta Journal / Constitution Weekend
".A record which will begin an epoch ... Remember the name: Kip Hanrahan, filled with talent, ambition, ideas..."
