Though Yanni is widely known as one of the most popular purveyors of New Age music, there's actually quite a bit going on here. In addition to the Greek keyboard whiz's usual arching, romantic melodies there are a host of other musical elements present. ETHNICITY is an eclectic mix of the operatic (check out Michelle Amato's pipes on "For All Seasons" and "Almost a Whisper"), the electronic (the pulsing, almost Moroder-esque sequencers on "Play Time" and "Written on the Wind"), and the ancient (the chanting on "Tribal Dream," the timeless-sounding flute work that permeates the album). Keying in on the album's title, the closing tune "Jivaeri" is a traditional Greek ballad that touches on Yanni's personal roots while still remaining very much of a piece with the rest of this sonically diverse offering.
This 'Tribute' DVD chronicles Yanni's two very special concert events at the Taj Mahal and The Forbidden City, featuring the songs from 1997's platinum "Tribute" CD. This DVD also includes "No Borders, No Boundaries," a documentary on the production of eash of these spectacular events, narrated by Christopher Plummer. Features 12 tracks such as "Deliverance," "Renegade," "Dance With A Stranger," "Niki Nana (We're One)," and much more!
