AllMusic Review by

Didgeridoo master David Hudson teams up once again with long-time collaborator, producer Steve Roach on this evocative collection of multiple didgeridoos combined with simple percussion. Strongly grounded in Aboriginal tradition, standard breathing techniques are accompanied by expressive grunts and cries designed to represent different animal spirits. A member of the Tsapukai tribe from Kuranda, Hudson also utilizes inspired vocalizing, deep spacial sound effects, and didgeridoo, combined with authentic sounds of Australian bush. Roach's studio prowess and current technological capabilities pull it all together to create this rewarding listening experience.
