Notes and Editorial Reviews

Cyprian Consiglio and John Pennington have collaborated once again to soothe the soul, re-affirm the value of the creative spirit that lives within. Equilibrium is pleased to share their refreshing and joyous music with new listeners and those who have appreciated the duo’s other Equilibrium offering, Awakening (EQ61). Cyprian's compassionate voice with sensitive guitar accompaniment weaves most elegantly with John's subtle and, when appropriate, vibrant world drumming and Western percussion playing on a variety of instruments from around the world. The duo is beautifully supported by bassist Bryan Kuban; vocalists, John Mareineke and Shannon Frediani; and violinist Mikylah Myers McTeer.
