DRUM CARGO - RHYTHMS OF FIRE is an album of pure, unadulterated drumming; the kind that sends a bolt of energy down your spine and fills you with the desire to move. David & Steve Gordon are masters of their craft, having become synonymous with quality rhythmic percussion music from their top-notch bestsellers like SACRED EARTH DRUMS and DRUM MEDICINE. DRUM CARGO picks up the groove where those efforts left off, featuring raw, multi-layered tribal drumming mixed with occasional flute calls and didgeridoo. This album differs from the pair's past efforts in the purity of the percussion - the music is much more focused on the invigorating sound of multiple drums played in dynamic ensembles than lush atmospheres. Throw in a wide range of drums from all corners of the world and the skills of fellow drum explorers Kim Atkinson and Bobby Cochran and you have the recipe for a rhythmic tour-de-force.
