Tadeusz Palosz Born in Poland, London based percussionist, handpan player, singer - songwriter, sound therapist with many years of experience playing in world music bands, ecstatic dance, 5 rhythms projects , kirtan events, DJ events. Inspired by world and tribal music, world percussion, handpans, relaxation and healing music.

Rhythmic Ancestry was born of my long fascination with handpans and many other sounds: percussive, ethereal, tribal, healing etc. It is a fusion of many musical cultures and inspirations and my goal was to find my own, original way of blending those. Saraz and Panstream handpans were used to create songs and inspire the flow of the music. Many world percussion sounds and melodic instruments were recorded by using Roland HPD 20 percussion pad and MIDI keyboard with various sound libraries. I wrote lyrics to the pieces myself and for some of them I made up my own words (own language). Poetic and personal stories add depth and flavour to the compositions and take listener on a relaxing journey. On this album I was lucky to collaborate with amazing musicians who added bass/electric/acoustic guitars, keyboard, trumpet and flute.

Working with Davide was a big breakthrough on my way to create my dream handpan album. What started as an experimental home recording project turned into professional sounding album! Davide`s guidance, kindness, great communication, faith in the project and creative suggestions created amazing sounding and cohesive album I am proud to share with the world.

Any musician will tell you – the mixing process is a crucial part in music production. Davide Sgualdini is a master of the sonic world and can make a huge difference to any project, whichever the musical style is. He continuously dedicates careful attention to the music he works on in order to elevate it to its highest potential. Since I began to work with Davide, my music has never sounded better. I can confidently say that there are two periods in my musical life before and after Studio LaMorte!
