"Walking the Shadows" begins EnTrance with an engaging mixture of drone, flute, and a percolating percussion groove that seems to hit on
everything....including the kitchen sink! "River Truce" embarks on amazing textures: gamelan plunks, a happening bass, jaunty tambourine.
Pygmy flutes, and Hawaiian guitar. Exotic combinations proliferate: African drums back electronic tones, mixed with bagpipes: heartbeat, chant
and blues guitar: Middle Eastern dumbek, birdlike chimes. claps and string drones
untold delights. The album is a feast for the ears. Go with
the grooves or enjoy dissecting the many layers. Praetzel (Myths and Memories and Between Present and Past) plays keyboards and sampled
percussion: many guest artists sit in on a variety of ethnic instruments.
