Instrumental World Music Stream: James Asher/Sandeep Raval

James Asher and Sandeep Raval produce a multitude of world beats and rhythms that have the ability to take you on a trip inside your mind's eye. Any fan of world music or drums will enjoy this incredible musical journey!

Listen to "If The Earth Could Speak" and hear the drums and incredible sounds that make it all come alive.

More About The Artists:


Multi-percussionist Sandeep Raval teams up with worldbeat producer and artist James Asher to create a succession of tracks celebrating the power of drums in their many diverse colours. Embracing the broad stylistic range they have both experienced:- Worldbeat, Latin, Ecstatic dance, Shamanic, Jazz, Blues, Indian folk, Meditative and Native American, the music pulses with the vibrance of the broad galaxy of the worlds with which drums connect.

On the second disc, the TIPI experience, the rhythmic journeys deepen. Drum Travel draws on many profound rhythmic traditions to illustrate the ability of drums to ease and empower transformative personal journeys that can have extraordinary and life changing impacts on the traveller.

Crossing cultural divides is familiar territory to Asher and Raval, and this is further uplifted by two invaluable contributors: – the highly original singing and song writing of Italian singer/painter Carolina Maggio, with her unique and poetic approach, and the phenomenal musicality of guitarist and bass-player Simon Brewin. Casting aside previous conceptions and assumptions about genre and category will enhance the experience with this double album.

Dance to the drums, play along with the drums, meditate to the drums, but most of all enjoy the musical freedom that a deep love of drums invites, and find and enjoy your own travels with some compulsive accompanying scores.
