Producer/arranger/performer David Lyndon Huff went around the world without ever leaving home in constructing the hour-long Worldbeat. "A unique audio experience that combines modern musical technology with ancient and global elements," explains a sleeve note. "Relax. Listen. Explore." Indeed, mixing various natural sounds, instruments, voices, and, especially, drum beats, Huff has created an aural travelogue that sounds endlessly exotic without ever getting specific. It's like traveling around the world in an open vehicle that never stops in any one place. As such, it's appropriate more for background mood setting than foreground listening.
