Colors of Trance. An acoustic harp played with the lilt and poetry of Ireland’s Madeleine Doherty, accompanied by a dynamic mix of percussion, including Japanese taiko drum, Indian tablas, congas and didgeridoo. Produced by James Asher, who also plays an exotic array of keyboard sounds, this album expands the boundaries of trance. Asher’s ground-breaking world beat albums Feet in the Soil and Tigers of the Raj have distinguished him as a pioneer in the field of world music fusion. Each track is a musical interpretation of one of thirteen Colors. The styles range from foot-stomping dance to lyrical and haunting visually evocative tone poems. The innovative combination of instruments and styles give this album a unique and vital originality.
