These deep roots of the origin of music are found best on the
original motherland of the human race. Recorded on location deep
within the Kenyan tribal village communities we discovered an
unprecedented rich culture of rhythms and songs, and chants that
capture your imagination. Scraping the surface of this vast cultural
heritage Russ Landau and Sonokinetic invested in producing a
collection of samples that are unmatched in authenticity, realism,
power and beauty. Lomax would have been jealous and anxious if he’d
knew what would be possible with modern technology.
