Sacred Earth Drums CD
On Sacred Earth Drums, Shaman Drums from around the world join with Native American Flute, Incan Pan Pipes, Spirit Rattle, Guitars, Keyboard textures, and Sounds of Nature (including Wolf, Eagle, Coyote and Dolphin). Feel the irresistible power of shamanic drumming lead you on a healing journey. Move your body and become absorbed in the dance – for the sacredness of life and reverence for the earth! The Gordons’ goal with this recording is to provide a musical catalyst which can serve as a ritual and ceremonial tool for contemporary people searching for a way to reconnect with ancient wisdom and shamanic healing. Indigenous cultures know that humanity is only a small part of the overall web of life. Now more than ever we need to remember the sacredness of all life and reverence for the Earth. This is a message which belongs to all people and all cultures, and, hopefully, future generations.
Artist: David & Steve Gordon
David and Steve Gordon are innovators. Over the course of their 30 year career they have consistently pushed the boundaries of musical styles, and their albums have been pivotal in shaping the changing landscape of ambient music, world music and chill out electronica. Both David and Steve are award-winning producers, as well as composers, classically trained instrumentalists and the founders of Sequoia Records, which they have molded into a world-class record label since its inception 26 years ago.
Inspired by the tranquility of Sequoia National Park, David and Steve became a pioneering force in the realm of new age music by using nature sounds as a part of a musical composition to create nature music – a novel approach that had not been accomplished prior.
It is David and Steve’s ear for positive, culturally adventurous music, as well as their versatility and think-outside-the-box mentality that has made them the influential artists they are today, having grossed over 3 million units in sales worldwide. A recent N.A.R. survey listed the Gordon Brothers in the top 5 most popular artists as reported by new age music retailers, along with artists such as Enya and Loreena McKennitt, and several of their albums have charted in Billboard. Their music has been featured in a variety of films and television shows, including the Fox Searchlight feature Kissing Jessica Stein, comedy film The Parole Officer, the CBS Sports Xterra World Championship and more. The Gordon Brothers have recently completed Nirvana Groove, a global chill-out electronica album, and are currently recording an album of en-trancing meditation music featuring their collection of Tribal drums and Native American flutes.
