CD: Drums of a Nation

Adding to basket... The item has been added

Bringing together the power of trance-inducing ceremonial drums with mystical layers of natural sounds, monochord, and shamanic chant, Drums of a Nation creates a tremendous physical and spiritual intensity. 

The rhythmic sound of rain, and the beat of galloping horses hooves, blend perfectly with hypnotic resonant drumming. John Richardsaon dedicates this recording to all those who share the belief that music, rhythm and sacred chant can change the world.

    One of the best I've heard

    Posted by Gem Bedford on 25th Mar 2014

    Excellent and energising. It arrived today and I listened to the CD while doing reiki before reiki drumming and it was so powerful and uplifting. This CD is one of the best I have ever heard. Highly recommended!

    Amazing album

    Posted by Alison on 25th Feb 2010

    This is an amazing album. It just draws you in to the atmosphere and I can almost feel the rain falling on me. It gives me goosebumps, it is so real. John Richardson's music never ceases to inspire me and I would highly recommend this CD to anyone who really wants to experience the power of drums.

    Strong creative force

    Posted by Vernon Marshall on 30th Sep 2009

    I admit to being a fan of John Richardson. He somehow manages to convey an atmosphere that conjures up images of Native American culture even if that representation is distinctly Western. To me there is a strong creative force in his work that is sympathetic and understanding of shamanic practice whilst mindful of the desire for something consumable by a culture relatively new to such traditions. Drums of a Nation is not as gentle and catchy as Spirit of the Redman but it is not meant to be. This CD is more intense, more monochordic, more hypnotic. It may not suit all people, but, if drums are to your taste, then this CD will capture some of that trance-like environment created by these strong percussion techniques. The accompanying natural sounds do enable a mystical feel that is the custom with Richardson’s music. For anyone wanting to plunge deep into their imagination, then this CD can enhance that search for colour and creativity.
