AllMusic Review by

This Canadian musician originally established himself as a space pianist, and later, inspired by a trip to West Africa, released a drum and chanting tape called Spirit Drums followed by the all-percussion Drums of Passion. On his latest release he artfully combines both streams of influence to produce an album of electronic space music tastefully accented by a variety of West African percussion instruments. These elements wonderfully complement each other to produce a tape of great atmosphere and simple beauty. There is one lightly sketched song included here, the ballad "Cosmic Prayer," which, as a plea for peace and global unity, fits in nicely with the transcultural theme of the album.
