Album Review

The soundtrack for Cirque du Soleil’s 2010 production Totem, which was described as an examination of “the evolution of mankind from its primordial, amphibian state toward the aspiration of flight, taking inspiration from many of mankind’s founding myths” was composed by Guy Dubuc and Marc Lessard. In keeping with the primal theme of the production, the composers crafted a percussive, wildly inventive mish-mash of international flavors, with a heavy reliance on the Native American, Spanish, and Indian cultures. Larger than life and a little overstuffed, Totem, like all Cirque du Soleil projects, manages to deftly walk the line between spirited worldbeat and overproduced new age music.

When I put this in my ears at night I relax and go right to sleep. It is extremely calming. I actually bought the CD from the show. This is lovely nature centered melodies.


Though I didn't like "Ovo" so much, this album brings Cirque du Soleil back to the music I fell in love with them for in the first place. This is one show where you can never really know where the soundtrack will take you, or where each song in that album will take you, but you can always expect to be able to lie back and relax as the music overtakes your mind and soothes your nerves. "Totem" does that just as effectively as many other of Cirque's great albums, taking you into a tribal wilderness with its fun African themes and, occasionally, an eye-opening spectacle of nature. A solid addition to any and all Cirque collections.

Cirque du Soleil revolutionized the circus arts, transcending the traditional big-top approach of the past to spotlight elaborate sets, lavish costume, and original music. Founded in Quebec in 1984 by Guy Laliberté and Daniel Gauthier, the original group comprised local street performers; shunning animal acts to focus exclusively on human spectacles -- stilt-walkers, jugglers, fire-eaters, and the like -- the troupe quickly earned a following throughout Canada, eventually spreading across North America....
