What's in a "tribe"? The word returned to popular culture in the 1960s and has been in and out of fashion ever since. Of course, in most of the so-called "third world," it's not fashion: tribal societies are still the day-to-day reality, and musicians from sophisticated Western countries have been finding inspiration and vitality in tribal music for hundreds of years. It makes sense: all of us have roots in tribal culture somewhere.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, a report from the intersection of ambient electronics and tribal rhythms called TRANS-TRIBAL EXPRESS. Music is by ERIK WOLLO, RUDY ADRIAN & RON BOOTS, REMANENCE, ANTONIO TESTA & ALIO DIE, SATORI, MO BOMA, STEVE ROACH, and BYRON METCALF.
