I Like Everything About You (Yes, I Do)

A slower piece with terrific, uplifting lyrics

My favorite thing about this album is the variety of musical styles and instruments used, some of which I had never heard of previously.  The cajon, karinyan, quitiplas, bolon, and krin were all new and intriguing to me.  Crosspulse Percussion Ensemble has been around since 1992, bringing together a wide variety of music and cultural influences.  It is worth owning this album just to hear them in action!

“I Like Everything About You (Yes I Do!)” from Crosspulse Percussion Ensemble can be used and enjoyed in so many settings.  Studying multicultural music or instruments?  This is for you.  Need a variety of songs for a workout?  This is for you.  Want to be inspired to include body percussion in your choir’s repertoire?  This is for you.  Want some fun music to dance to in the kitchen?  This is for you.  If you want some fun rhythms to emulate in your drum circle, this album is for you!  Upbeat and fun, everyone will enjoy this album.

The first song on the CD is a blend of R&B music and nursery rhyme lyrics, a unique introduction to some very interesting music.  With lots of body percussion in songs like “Body Beat”, you can’t help but to join in and get moving too!  The CD winds down with “I Like Everything About You”, which has a slower, more relaxed tempo.  “I Like Everything About You” has a run time of 42 minutes and is recommended for all ages.

“I Like Everything About You” from Crosspulse Percussion Ensemble will be released on July 9, 2013, and will be available for purchase from Crosspulse and CDBaby.  Both sites allow you to catch a sneak peak at the music with short clips from various songs.
