Sonokinetic Maasai 1.2

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.
