Udu Chant

Lyrics: [none]
Music: Adepoju, Hart, Hussain, Moreira

An instrumental on Mickey Hart's "Planet Drum" CD. He gives the following background:

Udu Chant represents the struggle of Life and Death, which throughout history has been portrayed in ritual using percussion. Airto plays Portuguese wooden shoes called tamanco. I play the "Beam" and a giant hoop drum from the Arctic Circle, which together form the resounding low end. Sikiru maintains a timeline bell pattern, while Zakir plays custom-made electronic triggers connected to a digitally-sampled Udu drums.
