World Rhythm Band

An unexpected cross-fertilisation of contemporary jazz melody and harmony convincingly joined with rhythmic traditions of the Third World, particularly West Africa.

The World Rhythm Band plays what is certainly even in these days of the mixing of traditions and unexpected cross-fertilisation, a unique brand of music. On this CD you can hear contemporary jazz melody and harmony convincingly joined with rhythmic traditions of the Third World, performed by a band of five very talented instrumentalists who enjoy a growing reputation in Australia's southern states.
