The Story of Drumming Into Paradise
"Drumming Into Paradise allures you into a deep, trance-like state of peace and relaxation," says Bette Timm, nationally syndicated reviewer. This CD was inspired by Olabayo's original artwork on the cover. This bead mosaic painting portrays a healing journey into health, happiness, abundance and peace.
Olabayo provides the primal rhythms on a wide variety of exotic percussion instruments: agidigbo, akeregbe, akuba, ashiko, bembe, gourd, marimba, pow-wow drum, shakara, shekere, cajun, rattles and clave.
This is no ordinary music. Drumming into Paradise is music of the heart that opens a window into a sensual, spiritual, peaceful world.
