Stephan Baer
The Dark Frontier ©1997

The Irresistible power of the drums call the listener to celebrate and travel on a sonic sojourn throughout the continent of Africa. Sophisticated compositions of extraordinary drumming and percussion provide a deep, rich, earthy backdrop for African singing and chanting. Flutes, Marimbas, Kalimbas, Balafons and Synthesizers, sweeten the rhythms with enchanting melodies.
The Dark Frontier represents percussionist/composer Stephan Baer's memories, visions, and passions of Africa and is an excellent compliment to his previous release Across Distant Lands.
