CD Review – God of Drum, by Get Tribal

If you're looking for a dynamic showcase of powerful, pulse-pounding drumming that's not simply just one long extended drum solo, then this is the album for you.

Kari Hohne, the primary force behind the persona of Get Tribal, is a master of world mythology whose scholarship of ancient global cultural traditions gives her unique insight and ability to tap into the primal power of percussion.

While the focus of the album is clearly the various styles of ethnic drumming from around the planet, Hohne utilizes her electronic music expertise to synthesize textures and layers that accentuate the percussion with extra flavors and seasonings.

The result is a visceral sound experience that will keep your senses alert and your heart alive to the vibrant beats that moved the world in the past and will continue to propel it into the future.

--Raj Manoharan
