Daughters of Creative Sound
In the year 2004, each of the 'daughters' heard the call of the drum and responded to it's spirit. Daughters of Creative Sound is nine women of African descent expressing themselves through vocal, visual, and percussive avenues. The DAUGHTERS' objective is the healing of the female mind, body, and spirit through the arts. These performances speak to Spirit and speak through Spirit via instrumental and vocal music, storytelling, and movement that touch the soul. Although women and girls seem to be most inspired by the work of DAUGHTERS, all people who witness the group's presence and energy are moved by the women's ability to entertain, inspire, uplift, and educate. These women are storytellers, dancers, singers, and percussionists whose diversity of talents lends itself to a broad-based level of creative expression. Although Daughters of Creative Sound is a relatively new group, it has brought, joy, education, and healing to countless numbers of people who have enjoyed the 'sound' and the 'spirit.' There is an Akan proverb that says: 'Drum is the ear of God.' Daughters of Creative Sound received the 'Women of the Arts' award from 'Preventionfocus/Womanfocus' in 2005. The rhythms, songs, and stories on this CD will delight you with their freshness and power.
