Jorge Reyes (with Steve Roach)
1993 Extreme XCD 021 (CD)
We managed to find a very small handful the ultra-rare, out-of-print Extreme label version of this 1993 classic -- still sealed. During this period of the early 90's, a steady stream of influential recordings by Jorge and Steve were created, fusing the ancient and modern spirit of shamanic ceremonial remembering. This release stands together with Suspended Memories, ORIGINS, ARTIFACTS etc. as essential releases which mapped the new landscapes that would soon be called tribal-ambient. Haunting, timeshifting atmospheres, various percussion, clay pots, and pre-Hispaninc flutes abound, along with Jorge's voice and chanting. All of this boils steadily throughout the journey into the "customs" of the new tribes.
