Wonder Dancing on Global Bop
by Paul Adams
Wonder Dancing On Global Bop could be described as a passionate and energetic travelogue of musical styles and influences from various cultures. Hearing Latin and African polyrhythms with American Indian chants and harmonica, Spanish and Gypsy improvisations, string banjo with jazz trumpet, or Gamalon gongs in a romantic setting with electric guitars makes complete sense with this design. This is truly 'one world' and the integration of vast cultural expressions is the result of this 'Global Village' we call earth. Listen, Enjoy.

Paul Adams spent his formative years building musical instruments for such luminaries as Daryl Hall, members of Stevie Wonder, The Pointer Sisters and others.
From Mountain Dulcimers, guitars, and Swedish Humels to composing music that Electronic Musicians magazine calls "surprisingly varied, very sophisticated and gorgeous!" Adams continues to prove that there are no boundaries in the creative realm! The San Jose, California Metro called Adams "...one of the most important New Age personalities since George Winston". Musical Starstreams, the largest syndicated instrumental radio show in America, called his first album, Various Waves, "The sleeper album of the year!" Tower Records Pulse magazine called Wonder Dancing On Global Bop "... a heady blend of world fusion, willfully eclectic...held together with scintillating fretwork!" A View From The Plain is a most unique acoustic guitar album that reached Top Ten status in Canada. Adams' following albums, In The Land Where I Come From and The Property Of Water, have continued to chart a unique musical course that is catching and risk taking. His music covers many genres and styles. Expect a beautiful surprise, and a wonderful journey!!
