Trance Mission Duo: Giving urban tribalism a whole new soundtrack

BETH CUSTER - Bb, Alto & Bass Clarinets, Voice, Trumpet, Toys
STEPHEN KENT - Didjeridu, Percussion, Cello-Sintir

Trance Mission Duo features two extraordinary multi-instrumentalist/composers with mountains of global accolades to their credit. Trance Mission continues the genre-breaking musical traditions they started in the 1990’s. Founded in ‘91 by Kent and Custer this seminal 4th World quartet out of the Bay Area performed extensively on the West Coast and in Europe and created four universally acclaimed recordings released on San Francisco's City of Tribes label.

The music of Trance Mission is as fresh and alive today as it was at its inception and the band's performances snap, crackle and pop with infectious improvisational spirit and humor. They are currently working on a new release slated for 2015 and booking engagements the world over.

The digital aura remarkably marries the indigenous instrumentation with a rare naturalness, resonating with the full flame of world-derived trance power. ---Sam Prestianni

A unique Aboriginal, African and European fusion. Their rhythmic, trance-inducing music for didgeridoo, drums and synthesizer makes a perfect soundtrack --- j. poet

This is such deep, exploratory, soulful music...unlike anything I've ever heard. It's world music, yes, but at the same time its progressive, jazzy, tribal, traditional, jamming, driving, trance rhythms...I hear something new everytime I put this CD on. ---PG, Dirty Linen

For the first time in over 10 years, the entire Trance Mission catalog is now available on CD Baby.
