Rhythms of the Infinite - Music for Yoga, Movement and Relaxation CD by Drummer John de Kadt and guests, offers a global percussive feast for yoga and dance.

Rhythms of the Infinite invites us to a global percussive feast flavored with the mesmerizing melodies of sitar, esraj, bansuri flute, voice, guitar, fretless bass and the contemporary hang. John de Kadt along with musicians T.H. Subash Chandran, Ganesh Kumar, Benjy Wertheimer, Wah!, Moksha Sommer, and others carry listeners through a trance-like soundscape that evokes a sense of infinite space and serenity.
Part harmonica wizard and part rhythmic explorer, Harper is a fiery artist who blurs the lines between rock, folk and blues. His use of the didgeridoo, an indigenous wind instrument of his native Australia, along with his compelling original songwriting and sublime vocals, gives Harper a distinctive sound entirely his own. Harper's music is instantly memorable, with a deeply soulful groove.
South Florida guitarist Randy Bernsen started his recording career in an unorthodox way, calling a collection of jazz/fusion luminaries who, even to his surprise, agreed to be a part of his 1986 debut album Music for People, Planets & Washing Machines. After recruiting fretless bass giant and fellow South Florida resident Jaco Pastorius and getting a return call of interest from keyboard virtuoso Herbie Hancock, it was easier to interest keyboardist Bob James and drummer Peter Erskine. Released on MCA's Zebra label, the album earned Bernsen write-ups in Down Beat and Guitar Player magazines and appeared to start a flourishing career.
