'Resonance' Ancient Flutesdidgeridooethnic Hand D
'Ancient Sounds' creates inspiring. Unforgettable, heart-felt music themes ranging from ethnic world music through melodic light jazz with amazing variety. Initially we performed as an ensemble, then over the years developed a core group. 'Resonance' features Japanese Bamboo Shakuhachi, Native American, Chinese Hulusi, South American, East Indian, Irish/Celtic other World Flutes, Penny Whistles, and Australian Didgeridoos. The Ancient Wind core brings dynamic expression, and exotic impact to the music. The Ancient Winds are interwoven with ethnic hand percussion, piano, keyboards, synthesizer, guitar and amazing vocals either tonal or with beautiful uplifting lyrics. The musical mosaic created is vast variety, with moods from meditative to danceable. Ancient Sounds' music is created for pure enjoyment and rejuvenation. There is focused intention behind the music. It's to support people on their chosen paths and to inspire the unfolding of the innate creative talents of others. 'Ancient Sounds' music is created collaboratively over time by our group members. It typically takes many sessions and live performances over a long period of time before we finalized the songs, as recorded on our CDs. For instance, Danick Jawer was a band member of Ancient Sounds when our first two CDs were created. Danick is by far the dominant lyrics writer for both CDs. Don Bargiano was a member when most of the initial content for 'Resonance' was created. Don made made contributions to the chording and bass lines in several songs therein, such as in 'Love is a Miracle', 'Keep Walking', and 'AfriAsia'. To honor those that contributed during song development we credit members co-creation of songs to which they co-contributed. Some of Don's guitar cording ideas were used on 'Love is a Miracle' and bass line ideas on 'Keep Walking' and 'AfriAsia'. Thus, while they were past band members Don, Danick and others have made substantial individual contributions to specific songs on our CDs. 'Love is a Miracle', which embodies a wide variety of specific contributions over time was used as the a descriptive music example for the 'Resonance' CD by the Nomination Committee, when it was under consideration for a NAMMY. We greatly appreciate the contributions of our current and past members!
