OU is genius. They take you on a Mediterranean joyride of vivacious original compositions with folk sensibility, jazz with fiercely funky rhythms, topped with gorgeously lush vocals, sung in Sardinian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and English.
Based in Rome, Italy, the three women are Sardinian, the three men pure Romans. Bass drums and piano form the lively rhythm section ~ then trumpet, sax, ukelele, glockenspiel and 6 glorious voices weave themselves over the contagious rhythms.
Gongs are one of man's oldest therapeutic instruments and are believed to have a profound effect on the nervous system. They are reported to bring about relaxed and meditative states, aid in pain control, and decrease negative thought patterns, addictive behaviors, and depression. Many people use gong therapy every day to 'raise their vibration', which improves the quality of their thoughts and actions, and helps restore a state of inner balance.
