Title: Take Off Them Beads
Artist: Xatanga
Label: CD Baby
UPC: 825346967127
Genre: Soul/R & B

Xatanga (zah-tan'-ga) n. 1. An eclectic blend of various musical attrbutes which, when combined, create an evocative and intriguing work. 2. A re-fueling outpost in remote Siberia. This Xatanga is not in Siberia. At once uniquely mysterious yet everyday familiar, Xatanga weaves an intricate sonic tapestry of richly contrasting colors and designs, bound seamlessly together and laid invitingly at the feet of the listener ... every step taken is another journey of emotion and imagination. Skillful arranging and carefully-applied production techniques have yielded a faithful blend of diverse musical styles and genres that flow effortlessly throughout this powerful work. From swampy blues, gutsy New Orleans-driven funk, and Motown-inspired R&B ... to Latin, Gospel, and Rock 'n Roll, Xatanga traverses a remarkable array of musical landscapes that collectively form an amazingly fluent and compelling portrait. Propelled by the soul-gripping powerhouse vocals of Erin Cruise and George Pendergrass, and infused with the sensual honesty delivered by Nina Scarcia, Xatanga's "Take Off Them Beads" is punctuated with sizzling performances by inspired musicians and brilliant instrumentalists. This is authentic music played from the soul. Xatanga is an exceptional pick for the discerning, hip-er listener who insists on real music by real musicians ... and for anyone who will enjoy exploring a new and fascinating path through the old neighborhoods of American music.
