This is the title song from my sophomore effort, writing and recording under the Xenovibes moniker. The song celebrates diverse musical cultures; as expressed in the lyrics.
I created the rhythmic and sonic bed to this electro-ethnic piece that has a carnivale spirit brought alive by J Martinez's drumming in the Plena style.


Strange inflections flood my day
Ambivalence in that hazy way
So surreal when the light fills
So still when the dust befalls
I am blinded knowlingly
To recognise your modality
What daylight hasn't shown me
It's the same groove coursing through our veins
Music from another land!

Strange connections flood my day
Indifference is just not my way
So real that you feel
How I thrill when the music sways
My ears not knowingly
Recognise our polarity
What my eyes haven't shown me
We have the same roots coursing through our veins.
Music from another land!
[J Martinez quotes a line from Sabor Ami]
