Album Review

Brothers David and Steve Gordon came up with a winner when they recorded Sacred Earth Drums, and it quickly became a bestseller in the new age market. This drum-based album marked a departure from the musical styles already offered by the brothers (namely, music and nature sounds and electronic music). The album begins with a lively Native American drum beat, 4/4 pulse (there is more pulsing, phrasing, and embellishment than a traditional Indian beat), rattles, a Native American flute, and bird songs. As the album progresses, the music becomes more elaborate; the flute melodies are more fanciful, warm guitars are added, and more complex rhythms (Latin and African) are added with other drums and percussion instruments. Eventually, other animals, keyboards, and space music effects fill out the sound spectrum. Though the music progresses (even into a light ambient), the beat's cadence remains constant. This is not a "percussion" jam album; no one element will overwhelm the room. The album's carefree spirit is perfect for trance-dancing or as a background energizer. You can't help but jump on board this rhythm wagon. The album liner notes are a story line for a shamanic journey for those who wish to relate to the album in this way. If you like this album, check out their follow-up, Sacred Spirit Drums.

Customer Reviews

Sacred Earth Drums

Connected to Creator and creation, the sacred drum, the heart of man - has a rhythmn and this drumming resonates with with the JOY that resides within my soul. From the quiet pond - a deep beauty envelopes me as I listen and respond with the movement of appreciation - dance. Obedience to the enchanting call of God produces joy in my life. Alan Redpath states "When there's disobedience in a person's life, the fullness ceases. And you soon know when you've lost the fullness because the joy is gone." If you find that you are resisting obedience to God in some area of your life, ask yourself, "Is it worth it?" JUST DANCE - sway to the drum beat of your heart - LISTEN for the still small voice - and be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Happily I listen to these drums - as I dance - as I respond - I embrace the resulting joy that God provides. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain, for a joyful heart stems from an obedience to the rhymthm that moves me.

The Definitive Native World Album !

Definitively the BEST Native/World album ever recorded. This is the ultimate classic of the genre. David & Steve Gordon have reached deep into the Native American ethos and crafted a trully unique worldbeat album that touches the soul and transports the listener to the very depths of themselves and connecting them with the Spirit of Earth. Bravo !


Authentic World Fusion Music, this album is absolutely breathtaking. The amazing blends of world drums and other instruments make this album beyond special. These guys really know what they are doing in the realm of world drumming, especially with a Native-American flavor, highly recommended.
