Some happy beat music from Italian conductor and arranger Gianni Ferrio!
Leave it to my dear brother in Naples, Paolo, to find one of the best Internet radio programs in the world, especially for those who love swanky music. Bravo!

Mickey Hart made his fame as a drummer for the Grateful Dead, whom I enjoyed greatly (at least in their live settings). He was also a big fan of Indian music, and really did a lot with his Diga Rhythm Band project to promote it. In this track, it sounds like exotica, innovative Latin percussion, and a touch of India deep inside.
He is joined in this track by Indian tabla player Zakir Hussain.
