Vintage dance music…
For ten years from 1992 we performed dance gigs with our band, firstly as Global and later as Riven, mostly at small festivals with a wild edge, although we regularly played Glastonbury and WOMAD. A windstorm of shamanic trance dance with a hypnotic techno groove and a swirling web of rhythms…
This is the wilder sister album to the ancient folk music collection Riven Inside, carrying the dynamic into some powerful dance energies, and building up to a unique fusion of sound that is both beautiful and raw.
