Album Notes
Armando, aka as Uncle Mafufo, has created a masterful tour of oriental rhythms and outstanding melodies that are sure to inspire each and every dancer. All the instruments used are acoustic, providing a warm and genuine sound.

'Entah' As the drums quicken to a Sahidi rhythm, the first familiar notes of the flutes call.

'Walkfast', a smooth up-tempo piece in 6/8. A vibrant splash of sound.

'Riqs Place' is a bright display of drum and tambourine.

'Entre Cortinas', a sensuous ney melody lingering above a rolling 4/4 rhythm. 'A sweet and romantic song inspired by dancers moving behind veils' .

Armando has included several longer drum taxims and more versatile drum solos. '4 Calabasas' was developed as a presentation piece for the Santa Cruz Calabash Award which Armando received in January 2001.

'Brizas'. With light drum rolls, the bright sound of sticks marking time in a swaying Tsamiko rhythm and a soft easy melody on santoor.

Generous in its scope, this CD has so much to offer dancers of any style or skill. Armando's approach to music is never dry or dull; rhythms are expanded and ornamented, changes are projected without being predictable. The range of melodies, from dynamic to dreamy convey a breadth of emotion imploring dancers to dance full out and express truly what is closest to their hearts.....Claire Wesley

Uncle Mafufo, as always you know a dancers heart. Great belly dance pieces. Melodically percussive.
