Echoes Playlist
ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS is a vibrant world fusion CD orchestrated by multi-instrumentalist Fritz Heede, and a soundtrack to a brilliant animated DVD of the same name. Like that DVD, Heede's music transports you into a constantly morphing, surreal world full of propulsive rhythms, serpentine melodies and floating ambiences. It's a virtual Middle Eastern music in a psychedelic dream with Heede weaving his guitars, sitar and keyboards in with a group that includes percussionist Gilbert Levy, flutist Suzanne Teng and a host of middle eastern musicians playing oud, douduk, and kanun. We journey through Fritz Heede's Illuminated Manuscripts, Echoes July CD of the Month.
