According to musician MATTHEW DAVIDSON, an archetribe is "an inherited pattern of thought derived from past collective experience — and present in the unconscious of people sharing some kind of culture."
When it comes to what we now call "world music," the archetribe is a sense that ethnic, folk, and tribal musics all over the world have a great deal in common. And musicians today also have a common technology for recording and working with sound. These powerful commonalities are breeding a new kind of musical language — global minded, respectful of the past, but oriented toward the future.
On this edition of Hearts of Space we explore that language, on a program called ARCHETRIBE. Music is by MARS LAZAR, ALIAS ZONE, KODO, GREEN ISAC, LAYNE REDMOND & TOMMY BRUNJES, SKIN TO SKIN, RICHARD BONE, ROBERT RICH, and ARCHETRIBE.
