In Depth

In January 1998, The Temple of the Full Autumn Moon presented "The History of Martial Dance," a theatrical exhibition of several styles of martial arts. Shannon Kawika Phelps, the sensei of the dojo, decided to have live musicians onstage accompanying the show. He was familiar with Didginus, and asked some of the members to put something together for the show. Randy Graves and Greg Callahan of Didginus joined with flutist Jon Agree and percussionist Mike LeBien to provide the music for the show, and this live recording is the result.

It features Randy on koto, didgeridoo and synthesizer, Jon on silver flute, and Mike and Greg sharing duties on djembe, djuns, and other assorted percussion. There are several relaxing and meditative pieces featuring koto and flute, plus some more intense music with didgeridoo and drumming.
