BALAM is Mayan for Black Jaguar. This CD is an excursion into Soundscapes in other words, NO melodies or rhythms! The object, just how many sounds can I get from these instruments (all Mexican/Central America) and some instruments were put through a sound processing device. SO, this is a meeting of Acoustic and Electronic. The mood of this recording is heavy and deep, great for meditation and such. SO, the best title for the mood is Black Jaguar. On my CDs I like to release something different from the rest, plus it shows that our instruments are capable of many styles and moods!
By the way, this CD is NOT a recording of one of my groups called EK BALAM but it's a beautiful recording anyway!
