Jamaican master percussionist Larry McDonald is at the heart of MCPR Music' "Drum Fusion" project. Now he crowns a storied forty year career with his first solo album "Drumquestra". Steered by veteran reggae producer Sidney Mills, it's a personal, mystical dance floor masterpiece that McDonald lovingly calls "a drummical experience."
McDonald gathered together some of his longtime associates, a glittering Jamaica crew of master-drummers including Sly Dunbar and Bongo Herman, and classic singers Toots Hibbert, Bob Andy and dub poet Mutabaruka as well as CPR regular vocaliss like Shaza and J.D. Smoothe.
Says McDonald, "I knew that rhythms from many places could work together and make a whole different texture, something old but new."
