Mandalaband Presents AD Sangreal

A Reflective Review By Andrea R.Garrison - Onlinewithandrea

AD Sangreal by the Mandalaband lead by the brilliant talents of David Rohl is an extraordinary CD with 15 amazing tracks. The AD Sangreal music focuses on the Roman Empire and the early middle ages telling the legendary history of the Holy Grail. This CD is dedicated to Stuart Wooly Wolstenholme one of the Mandalaband members who passed away in December of 2010. The opening track on this CD is A Bloodline Born featuring Marc Atkinson who happens to be one of my favorite male vocalists. Every single thing about this CD is great, and elaborate!!! It is meticulously produced in every detail. The music, the lyrics, the orchestrations, the vocals and the CD cover design by Ed Unitsky are beyond words. My first reaction when I listened to the entire CD was WOW this music is meant to be the background for a major Broadway play or a very well-produced epic film. It is rare to experience such a high level of creativity, musicianship and mastery. AD Sangreal is such an amazing collaboration. Everyone who participated in the development of this recording should be pleased. This CD is not meant to be down loaded. In order to truly have the entire extraordinary, majestic Mandalaband experience you must purchase the hard copy so you can enjoy the beautiful detailed colorful booklet as well as the music. Of course the best of both worlds would be to see the Mandalaband perform live. AD Sangreal by Mandalaband is definitely spot on!!! I love AD Sangreal!!!

Smart Music Entertainment Presents Lesson Number One

A Reflective Review By Andrea R. Garrison – Onlinewithandrea

I absolutely love Lesson Number One developed by Smart Music Entertainment. It is creative, educational ,entertaining and innovative. It features ten major tracks plus two bonus tracks. The CD starts out with a powerful introduction followed by Kings & Queens, Slavery, Invent, First 25 Presidents, Cash Flow, Congress Women, Moors, 50 States, It’s A War, Congress Women(remix) and Drugs. What amazes me is that Larry Lak Henderson and his team were able to incorporate so much historical information in a couple of minutes. Smart Music has taken Hip Hop music to another level. This project should be incorporated in school systems and communities everywhere. Smart Music has no limits because educational music is great for anyone at any age at any time. I look forward to Lesson Number Two. To find out how you can feature Smart Music Entertainment in your community and for more information on Smart Music visit and listen to the Onlinewithandrea interview with Larry ‘Lak’ Henderson.
