In 1978, when I recorded this album, the categories World Beat, World Music and multi-culturalism did not exist. Happily as we enter the 21st century, there's a new-found appreciation of the enduring value of Latin American, Native American, Middle Eastern, African and Asian musics as soul-mates to the treasures of European classics and America's jazz, blues, country and Cajun idiom. I'm still on the road, playing music, conducting, and composing orchestral and chamber music based on what I've learned from living with these musics and playing and sharing everything I know.' --David Amram This album features musicians as diverse as Amram's music itself: Pepper Adams, baritone saxophone; Steve Berrios, percussion, drums; George Barrow, tenor saxophone; Candido, congas; Jerry Dodgion, alto saxophone; Mohammed El Akkad, kanun; Ramblin' Jack Elliott, guitar, yodeling; Ali Hafid, dumbek; Ray Mantilla, percussion, congas; Nicky Marrero, percussion, timbales; George Mgrdichian, oud; Hakki Obadia, violin; Johnny Rodrigues Jr., percussion, bongos; Victor Venegas, bass and electric bass; Floyd Red Crow Westerman, Sioux frame drum, chant; Wilmer Wise, trumpet; Odetta, vocals on 'Home on the Range,' and Angela Bofill, Libby McLaren, Ilana Morillo, Patti Smyth, vocals on 'Kwahare,' 'Pescau.'
