Description

The Cirque Du Soleil acrobat troupe has used interesting musical soundtracks since their inception in the early 1980's. Now a multifaceted company, the various Cirque Du Soleil ensembles have released several albums documenting their music. On this 20th Anniversary Edition, listeners will be treated to compositions from many of their shows, including selections from SALTIMBANCO, ALEGRIA and others.

Not surprisingly, "Egypte" from MYSTERE features the jingles of Egyptian tambourines, and Islamic scales from Northeast Africa. The only thing missing is the belly dancer. The Indonesian-flavored "Gamelan" from the show O vividly depicts Java and Bali. "Vocea" from VAREKAI is more of a Western pop tune, though it is not sung in English. Pulsating percussion and robust strings dominate this mix. Since LE BEST offers a smattering of music from around the world, this collection will give listeners an opportunity to hear the kind of musical diversity encouraged by the Cirque Du Soleil founders. Indeed, this compilation is as unique and multicultural as the performers and show designers themselves.
