LOW STOCK LEVEL
"New rocket by Muruga, after the Free Funk LP! This healing session opens and closes with two funk/jazz tracks, rec. by Muruga in trio & 4et with Ken Kozara on muted trumpet and Richard Smith on bass; Belita Woods, from P-Funk, is added on the last track of the album, 'May The Funk Be With You.' The middle of the record is mostly perc. heavy and trance/ethnic oriented. 'Ascension' had been written by the late master Baba Olatunji and had been rec. live @ The Spirit Drum Fest. w/special guest Badal Roy (who rec. w/Miles Davis, Ornette, Don Cherry, ect...) and Sikiru Adepoju (who rec. w/Mickey Hart, Olatunji, ect..). 'Nelson Ledges' is a drums trio rec. live as well @ The Rhythm Fest in Ohio. 'Out of Nothing' is a very special duo piece rec. w/Prem Das: here Muruga uses a unique Nada drum, while Prem Das (long years of apprenticeship in Mexico with a Huichol shaman and was also a colleague of Timothy Leary & Ralph Metzner) uses a water drum for a quite hypnotic effect ! Open your heart and let your body move... to the rhythm, to the groove!"
