01 - Dawn of Mankind

With this song I wanted to recreate a very "primordial" mood, somewhat inspired by Africa. However, I don't think the music is itself tribal or related to any african tradition. The overall idea was to express some very primitive feel, that would ideally represent the very first sounds and music produced by the first men.
It was very easy to decide to put this song as the opener of my project. The ideal link to the early days of mankind represents the very beginning of my musical journey, a journey that will bring you all aroud the world and in distant places, both in space and in time.
