Short Song Description:
Wild animals and thunder are the background sounds of a medium tempo blend of drums and organ.
Long Song Description:
Wild animals and thunder combine with congas and other drums with ambient sounds to create a blend of World and New Age music.
Story Behind the Song:
This is one of a collection of six songs from my album, "Six Corners of Earth." Each song draws from a geographical area and combines instruments with nature sounds, modern beats blending New Age, World, and progressive concepts. This particular song draws from the Republic of Congo. I wrote it imagining a river boat traveling the Congo River. The 1951 movie, "The African Queen" with Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn was the inspiration for this song.
