This joyful “trance dance” music is based on a series of free-form improvisations between David Michael on Celtic harp and Christopher of the Wolves on hang (a steel pan drum). Hearing the hang played for the first time, David became enraptured by the sound. Discovering that the hang's pentatonic scale and clear tones interfaced beautifully with his Celtic harp, the two musicians began to jam and exuberantly recorded hours of their improvisations, also inviting the participation of guitarist Joe Breskin and flutist Randy Mead. The album has been described as sounding like Celtic/Jamaican/Chinese fusion music.

Reviews

David Michael continues to produce an outpouring of valuable recordings. This reviewer, quite frankly, is overcome by smarmy, violent thoughts in the presence of much so-called New Age music. Not so with Michael's rhythmic improvised melodies on the Celtic harp and his contemplative give-and-take with the remarkable Christopher of the Wolves, who was experimenting for the first time with the Swiss hang drum (which sounds like a cross between a Caribbean steel drum and meditative Tibetan bowls). Throughout, Christopher tends to pull both musicians into gentle repetitive riffs that flow like rivers of energy, with Michael moving melodically like delighted driftwood among the bounces and ripples of the river. The result is an oasis of blissful sound, a pleasing background for any activity, and also satisfying the listener who gives his or her complete attention.

Long-time musical partner Randy Mead joins in occasionally on the alto flute, and Joe Breskin adds a touch of guitar. More than just another meditation CD, this one is a musical event, stretching masterful musicians in new directions, challenging them, and creating delight. ”
