Album Review

Zingaia is the stage name adopted by keyboardist and composer Mike Breene, who is joined on this album by singers Abbi Spinner McBride, Tamara Stadler and Katlyn Breene. The music they make together falls into the exotic/sacred/trance/dance/worldbeat category that basically translates into "gently funky electronic music that sounds vaguely like it must come from Africa or India or somewhere but don't worry too much about the cultural specifics." And if you can resist thinking too hard about the details, there's lots of pleasure to be had here, in the nicely harmonized vocals and dark, loping bass on "Soles on Earth," the dubbed-up and vaguely sexy vocals on "Sahaja," and the exotically funky "Bone Dance." There may or may not be anything spiritual about this music, and there's certainly nothing "ancient" about it (despite the occasional references to the Hindu elephant god Ganesh and the use of faux-tribal voices), but the grooves are all perfectly serviceable and the textures are rich and pleasing. Recommended. (The disc includes a video as a CD-ROM bonus track.)

Customer Reviews

stimulating sexy music and exotic voices

This album had me really moving with some great tribal-like/techno rhythms. I loved the stimulating sexy music and exotic voices that drew me in to visions of the wildness of the African plains, then relaxing on a soothing Indian riverboat, to the sensual delights of a sultry Arabic nightclub. The synths swirl and the drums lead me on. A hot album and one I would highly recommend for adding to your sexy dance mix.

Always thrilled to hear what's out there by Zingaia!

The more I hear of Zingaia, the more I'm in love, the other two that I had prior to this (Beneath the Veil & Dancers of Twilight) have kept me looking for more! What is so wonderful is that although the sheer talent and quality of sound is present in all three, they each have a very unique sound. You could never bore of Zingaia.

Unrivaled rhythms and world sounds

Soles on Earth is amazing, it truly brings my body in tune with the rhythms of the earth and transports me to another place altogether. There are SO many different sounds and rhythms from around the world! It's impossible to not get caught up in the pulsating world beats!
