From MainlyPiano

"God of Drum" is a collection of ten original tribal music pieces inspired by the thunder deities of world mythology. The music was composed and performed by Get Tribal, the artist name of Kari Hohne, who is also a Mayan language preserver, master diver, best-selling author, tablet app designer, dream analyst, business consultant, Tai-Chi instructor, and world traveler - whew!

Ancient cultures revered thunder for activating spring each year and used drums to synchronize the heart, mind and soul with the vital life force. It is believed that the pounding of the drum awakens the heart, allowing us to achieve higher states of awareness. The ten tracks on this album are designed to stimulate the seven major Chakras as well as the Dantien, the Soul Star and Spirit Chakras, and the compositions reflect world-wide cultural influences that include Native American, Gaelic, Chinese, Norse, Celtic, African, Middle Eastern, Mayan, and Indian. It’s an impressive and stirring album from a world music perspective as well as from a more earthy and sensual enjoyment of the pounding rhythms.

"God of Drum" begins with “Call of Abundance,” inspired by Wakinyan, the Thunder Bird of the Lakota and one of the many feathered serpents found in indigenous cultures. This piece is mostly drums and chant, with flutes and electronic effects floating a melody over the drum. I love the intensity and energy of “Passion Rising,” composed for Loucetious, a Gaelic deity. The powerful drums, chanting voices, and bagpipe-like sounds stimulate the sacral chakra, which can separate fear and anger from the sensation of pleasure. “Donnar” the Nordic thunder deity, inspired “Awakening Power,” which is very dark, intense and cinematic. Powerful, hypnotic drumming meshes with wordless vocals, strings and organ to get the pulse pounding and the heart racing - another favorite. “The Flow of Expression” is quite different. Inspired by Xango from the Afro-Caribbean region, the piece has a Reggae beat and a chant intended to “polish the mirror of the mind.” “Open to Wonder” is a haunting and exotic nod to Adad, the storm deity of Mesopotamia. The subtle changes in rhythm are designed to be unexpected in order to make us more receptive to a sense of wonder. “Aligning With Purpose,” inspired by the Mayan thunder deity, Chaac, is more orchestrated and cinematic. It is intended to stimulate the Soul Star chakra, which regulates our connection to a sense of purpose and helps us assimilate the wisdom of the higher self or purveyor of dreams. “Endless Reflection,” inspired by Indra, the thunder deity of India, contains a mantra that is sung throughout the peace, repeating the words, “om” (the sound of the universe) and “shanti,” which means peace. The combination of traditional Indian instruments and electronics creates a fascinating juxtaposition that brings the album to a peaceful close.

"God of Drum" is a mesmerizing musical exploration of thunder gods throughout history and from all corners of the world. Certain to stir the ears and soul as well as the chakras, Get Tribal has created a unique and inspiring work of musical art (I love the cover artwork, too!). Recommended!

Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus

In my more than 30 years as a new age music journalist and reviewer, I’ve seen and written about a number of albums specifically created to attune the energy centers or chakras of the body and spirit. However, "God of Drum" by Kari Hohne, who records under the name of Get Tribal, is certainly one of the most unique. She describes the album as “a collection of percussion-based tribal music inspired by the thunder deities of world mythology.” According to Kari: “Each track was composed based on an archetype and shamanic drumming pattern from different parts of the world.” These reflect Native American, Celtic, Chinese, Norse, African, Mayan, and more. As can be expected, there is a broad spectrum of ethnic instruments, while her parallel interest in electronic music brings in synthesizers, samplers, and other contemporary sounds. Although meditation music is generally soft and soothing - Kari purposely sought to unlock energy.

While there is a lot of metaphysics behind the music, and it can be helpful or interesting to know, ultimately it’s also fine to just press “play” and go with the flow. The album is a spirited multi-cultural musical experience that anyone can enjoy and groove to. But at its heart, “God of Drum” by Get Tribal is a powerful musical tool for unlocking energy to create harmony and balance. Her extensive research into archetypes, mythology, and shamanic studies is particularly evident in the music heard on the album. The emphasis on earthy rhythms and world music influences make this one of the most notable offerings in this particular genre. A lot of vision and creativity went into sonically designing each track, and it shows. For me, this album was a pleasant surprise, and one I’d recommend in a heartbeat.
