about

The music of Gabrielle Roth & The Mirrors is loosely structured rhythm rides, deeply centered around percussion in all its forms. The band doesn’t use percussion to drive music; it uses music to dress up the percussion.

Back in the day (late ‘70’s - early ‘80’s), before it became a seminal influence in the creation of the ambient music genre, Gabrielle Roth & The Mirrors was making “regular” music, a blend of early ‘80s rock and tribal chanting -- songs with lyrics, verses and choruses.

This album is a re-release of some of these early songs, which were part of a cassette called PRAY BODY. Like messengers from a bygone era, the energy in these songs rings as clearly as ever, and Gabrielle’s lyrics are as relevant today as they were in those days of yore.

In addition to her usual role as Musical Director, Gabrielle sings or speaks on 5 of the 6 tracks.

about

Raven Recording New York, New York

Ours is a world beat music without a world, made for a dance without steps, for a tribe without boundaries.

We started recording percussion-driven music in the early 80's to support the 5Rhythms as a dance practice. Since that time we have created twenty albums, each rooted in one or all of the 5Rhythms. We wanted to capture the spirit of the drumming so that people could dance with us.
