Anthony is an internationally acclaimed artist who continues his studies by exploring music from cultures all over the world and collaborating with musicians indigenous to those regions.
RITUAL is a collection of 11 songs composed by Anthony Mazzella. The music is a fusion of Spanish Guitar and Near Eastern Music. This CD is 3 years in the making as it was produced by Anthony who composed all the music, arranged all the songs, played all the instruments (plus several guest appearances), recorded, edited and mixed it in his home studios both in New York City and Sedona Arizona.
The music for this CD was inspired by Anthony’s travels through Europe and the Near East and performing with musicians indigenous to those regions.
In the words of Anthony; “the practice of making music is ritual to the musician. The rising of the sun and moon is ritual to the earth. The life experience of the spiritually conscious being is connected to source, god, nature. The ritual, the ceremony and the art helps the spiritual one and the musician transport the layman, the seeker and the listener into the soul experience of life”.
