Presented by Trance Mission
This performance was made possible in part by the generous support of the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation.
Trance Mission is Stephen Kent, Beth Custer and Peter Valsamis, three extraordinary multi-instrumentalist/composers with mountains of global accolades to their credit. A Trance Mission concert will have driving grooves, lilting melodies and hip-swaying drones. Trance Mission continues the genre-breaking musical traditions and the band's performances snap, crackle and pop with infectious improvisational spirit and humor. They are currently working on a new release slated for 2015 and booking engagements the world over.
The digital aura remarkably marries the indigenous instrumentation with a rare naturalness, resonating with the full flame of world-derived trance power. ---Sam Prestianni
A unique Aboriginal, African and European fusion. Their rhythmic, trance-inducing music for didgeridoo, drums and synthesizer makes a perfect soundtrack --- j. poet
This is such deep, exploratory, soulful music...unlike anything I've ever heard. It's world music, yes, but at the same time its progressive, jazzy, tribal, traditional, jamming, driving, trance rhythms...I hear something new everytime I put this CD on. ---PG, Dirty Linen
