Description

Scripture on CD

With 'The Scripture' you can find the melting pot of Garifuna Music. The Garífuna garaón drum ensemble comprises the lead primera or heart drum, the counter-rhythmic segunda or shadow drum, and the steady bass-line tercera. An unusual adaptation is the snares, one or two guitar strings or wires stretched over the drumhead to achieve the buzzing sound also favored in some West African music cultures. This lends a highly valued denseness to the overall sound, of this album. Additional traditional instruments include turtle-shell percussion, bottle percussion, claves and a variety of shakers and scrapers drawn from the Amerindian music of St. Vincent which can be heard in the movement of the album. Aziatic made a difference with the 'Scripture' by expanding his instrumental array with European additions, while also incorporating English, Jamaican, Haitian and Latin American folk elements rounding up a connection with his audience like never before.
