Ahmed Garcia

In the 20Th century there are few musical styles that incorporate truly ancient and primal modes and cultural idioms. In today's world the Price Waterhouse Coopers global entertainment and media outlook from 2002-2006 has listed the world music genre as the single most persuasive new form in emergence and at the top of that is fusion. Fusion is the future of world music inspiration. " World Music Central's " contributing author Patricia Herlevi wrote in her article " The Powerful Language of Music". "A long, long time ago, during the dawn of the human epic, music existed as informative entertainment and for healing purposes. Music possesses shamanic roots and through the ages, music poured from the mouths and instruments of bards, troubadours, magicians, shamans, priests, priestesses, meistersingers and others initiated into the power of sound, words and storytelling--initiated in the tradition of healing with sound". Vigilantly seeking to continue this honorable tradition of spirituality. Multi talented guitarist and glissintarist Ahmed Garcia is now poised at the zenith of this fusion genre and has emerged with guns blazing. Along with his faithful producer/co-producer live bass accompanist and mastering engineer Charles Patrick Mott. Ahmed Garcia has found the perfect balance between hard driving rhythms and soft supple melodies. Between clever solos based solely in originality and ancient beats and rhythmical roots fresh from the muse of antiquity. Born of Colombian descent and raised by traditionally minded belly dancers; also absorbing successfully his fathers world view and staying true to his family's values Ahmed Garcia has found his faith to be something that he wishes to share with you and the world through his art form, through his music. While remaining respectful of Gods gift to Ahmed. This style and unique way of playing has taken over 20 years to perfect and is no simple or small accomplishment. Although Ahmed is the first to say he has had teachers and instruction over the years and this is an endearing testament to his humility as an artist. This type of fusion that has come to be known as " American Desert Music " is strictly and uniquely Ahmed and has come to be seen as the beautiful future tide of the American tribal dance community. To quote his producer Charles Patrick Mott " Ahmed is by far the most educated and deeply articulate instrumentalist' of his day. His music is historical, original and vibrant and is by far the very best example of old world tradition meeting new day innovation." Ahmed Garcia has appeared on other various formats through out his years but has finally come home with this gorgeous latest release entitled " Amelia " . This album of songs tell an enduring story of life found, life lost, faith and love and is truly a view of tomorrows face of fusion. With his band " Muse Oasis " confidently by his side you will find few other live world music experiences as rewarding as this one. Often cloaked in mystery and crowned with some of the regions top dancers the live performances of Ahmed Garcia and Muse Oasis are a bright and bangled musical and dance extravaganza with everyone left wanting more. So on behalf of the production team of Ahmed Garcia and Charles Patrick Mott. We would like to present and hope you enjoy " AHMED GARCIA " & " Muse Oasis" ---- " AMELIA " ----. Dustin Clay.
