AllMusic Review by

The producers of Riverdance present another fusion of music and dance with Heartbeat of Home, a stage presentation that brings together the sounds and movements of Irish, Latin, and African cultures to create a global celebration of identity and expression. Heartbeat of Home features an original musical score from composer Brian Byrne, who wrote the music for the acclaimed film Albert Nobbs and has served as an arranger and conductor for such artists as Barbra Streisand, Van Morrison, P!nk, Lisa Stansfield, and the Corrs. With his music for Heartbeat of Home, Byrne honors the individual flavors of each musical style while also finding a joyous commonality in all cultures; he has created a musical score that is nearly as powerful on its own in the recording studio as it is while accompanying the dancers on-stage.
