CD Review – Primordial Sonics, by David Vito Gregoli

David Vito Gregoli's latest album is a melting pot of sounds from around the globe, truly making it a genuine work of world music. He calls it ambient aboriginal groove fusion, and that's exactly what it is.
Indigenous instruments such as Australian Aboriginal didjeridu, sitar, tabla, Persian santoor, Indian tambora, Indian bansuri flute, and Egyptian Ney flute come together with bass, percussion, and keyboards and synthesizers to forge a hypnotic hybrid that sounds very much like instrumental rock by way of India, Australia, and the Middle East.
Helping to bring Gregoli's musical vision to life are didjeridu virtuoso Stephen Kent, Yoga chanteuse Donna De Lory, flautists Suzanne Teng and Manose, and late percussionist Geoffrey Gordon and late bassist Bob Birch, the latter two to whom the CD is dedicated.
This is one of the best world music albums I have ever listened to, and it's a global musical journey worth taking.
