Composer and trumpeter Jon Hassell has been an elusive, iconic musical figure for more than half a century. He's best known as the pioneer and propagandist of "Fourth World" music, mixing technology with the tradition and spirituality of non-western cultures to create what he termed the "coffee-colored classical music of the future." In 1987 he joined with Farafina, the acclaimed percussion, voice, and dance troupe from Burkina Faso, to record 'Flash Of The Spirit'. While the album is a natural extension of those "Fourth World" ideas, it also a distinctive outlier in the careers of both artists; an unrepeated merging of sounds whose influence still reverberates today.

Also available: FLASH OF THE SPIRIT (2LP+CD) (LP).
