David & Steve Gordon are brothers who spent most of the 1980s exploring eastern spiritualism and releasing hard core meditation albums. But a couple of years ago, they discovered the rhythmic side of trance music and began creating a world fusion based in Native American flutes and African percussion, held together with guitars and synthesizers. SACRED EARTH DRUMS and SACRED SPIRIT DRUMS are both big selling albums. We'll talk with David and Steve in their south California studios where they mix music and mysticism.

Solas talks about Celtic music at a crossroad. Solas is the Celtic music ensemble headed up by multi-instrumentalist Seamus Egan. Best known for writing the music for Sarah McLachlan's hit, "I Will Remember You," Egan's Solas has been pushing the boundaries of Celtic music from the inside out. Their latest CD, THE EDGE OF SILENCE (Shanachie) is produced by Neil Dorfsman, best know for his work with Dire Straits, Sting and Paul McCartney. He brings a more electronica sound to Solas as they play original instrumentals and covers of tunes by Jesse Colin Young, Tom Waits and Bob Dylan. Solas talks about tweaking their Celtic heritage.

Shaman's Dream creates musical incantations in the Echoes Living Room. Shaman's Dream is a Los Angeles group headed up by percussionist Craig Kohland and sitar/guitarist Chuck Jonkey. A global traveler, Jonkey collects sound recordings and instruments from around the world. He and Craig Kohland merge these into global soundscapes that take a meditative hue until you listen deeper to the environmental designs, world percussion and the custom sitar/guitar of Chuck Jonkey. Shaman's Dream gathers some LA music stalwarts, including Kirtan singer, Dave Stringer and percussionists Gilbert Levy and Jim McGrath. Together, they weave a sonic meditation live on Echoes.

At his Media Venture Studios, film composer Hans Zimmer takes us to the heart of a sonic Mogadishu when he talks about his score to BLACK HAWK DOWN (Decca). Zimmer, who won an Academy Award for his score to The Lion King, turns his pen to darker themes for this harrowing film. To capture the mood of clashing cultures and technologies, he created a War Room in his studio, complete with camouflage netting and battle debris. In this setting, his Black Hawk Down Band, including guitarist Michael Brook and electric cellist Martin Tillman, wove Moroccan gibris and feedback guitar together into a halluncinatory landscape.
