When Los Angeles? Shaman?s Dream gets ready to perform ? "live" or in the studio ? its members call upon the powers of nature to bring healing and positive transformation to their music. Like the shamans who take us into the spirit world to enlist the help of guides, animals, and nature, these prolific musicians use the same sounds, chants, and rhythms to take listeners on a musical pilgrimage to the mystical, primal heart of Africa. Here they serve up a delicious ethno-jammin? blend of chant, fusion, and deep groove for bodycentered movement, dance, or serious trans-dimensional drifting.
The album features Donna DeLory, Dido Tshibangu, Marcel Adjibi, Abdou Mbaya, and Masai village men and women from the Serengeti plains.
Together with Micheline Berry, founder, producer and facilitator of Zen Dancing, and numerous other musicians, Craig Kohland is co-creator of The Shaman's Dream World Groove Ensemble, where the melodic ambience has merged with explosive world percussion to create a dynamic platform for dancing and ecstatic movement.
Jason Hann is an accomplished percussionist/drummer and producer who has been playing professionally since age 12. Music has taken him around the world, studying first hand in countries such as Ghana, Haiti, and Korea, both learning and performing folkloric and contemporary music of the land. A dynamic performer, Jason has also toured and recorded internationally within many different genres of music including Rock, R&B, Pop, Jazz, Latin, Latin-Jazz, Flamenco, African, Persian, Electronica, Techno, and World music.
African Dream will appeal to fans of Babatunde Olatunji, The Soweto Gospel Choir, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Monks of Keur Moussa Abbey, Oneness of Juju, and Ikwunga.
