My first collaboration with the incredible Tablamaster! This is the fourteenth piece in what I am beginning to think of as my Ramayana Suite, songs based on that incredible ancient Indian epic. This particular "movement" is meant to evoke a crucial scene: the demon king Ravana has kidnapped Sita, the wife of Rama (an avatar of Vishnu). Hanuman, the warrior monkey [not a little monkey, but a vanara, a human-sized, talking one] who has devoted himself in service to Rama, has discovered that Sita is in Lanka, a demon city on what we now call Sri Lanka. Aided by a sea god (who allowed rocks they tossed into the water to float firmly in a fixed position) Nala and Neela, two clever monkey architects, were able to plan a bridge for Rama's army of monkeys and bears to build and cross. Once on the other side, they would have to face the forces of darkness and win Sita's freedom.

This is all Tamblamaster and yours truly, except for a short midi zimble loop that I used. Enjoy!

Magic. Of all the elements (all exceptional) I think I like the bass line the best. Seems like a perfect meeting of the minds...DB and Tabla. Great collab. Perfect mix. Super-complex and full of audio intrigue. About as "pro" as it gets, guys. Well done!

Excellent flowing story tune. Love the collab.

I missed this while I was GA. I'm now trying to catch up. Don't remember if I've told you that I spent a month in India in 1993. Inspired place.

Yohmar pointed me this way and now I have three people to thank. I enjoyed the rich textures of sounds. The mix is excellent. I can hear the vibrancy and urgency that the music mirrors from the story. All in all a wonderful experience on many levels.
