George Ramick, producer of "Beltway Bistros: Spain series," writes on January 12, 2007.

"Flamenco Salsa" captures the modern sound of flamenco while conjuring the musical contributions of the Moors,
Sephardic Jews, gypsies, and the rich folk melodies of Andalucia that helped form this rich musical style.

Drew Bennett's flamenco guitar CD 'Flamenco Salsa' wonderfully captures the atmosphere of a bullfight,
a walk in a garden of Spain under moonlight, and dancers demonstrating their raw emotionalism.

I liked it so much I decided to use it in my television series on food, culture, and history. Sit back, relax, enjoy this
music -- and dream of Spain.

By Yogi Dr. Malik - Editor of Yoga Magazine UK.

Drew Bennett is an extremely talented guitarist, and this excellent Spanish - Flamenco
compilation evokes visions of warm Mediterranean nights, passionate dancing and romance.

'Flamenco Salsa' contains an array of styles to suit a wide range of tastes, from the vibrant tracks such as 'Flamenco Salsa' and 'El Baile De La Noche' to the cinematic feel of 'Carnivale' and the more gentle rhythms of 'Sandia Sunset' and 'Summers' Lullaby'.

Drew Bennett is very reminiscent of Jesse Cook or the Gipsy Kings - which speaks volumes for his pure natural talent. Drew is also joined by special guest performers including
John Herrera and Jonathan Miller on violin.

Drew Bennett is a gifted Native American flautist and guitarist who combines flutes, acoustic guitars, tribal drums and a whole lot more. This album offers something different. There is something about the CD which will have
you coming back for more!

Voices of the Planet radio, Vladivostok Broadcasting Corporation, Russia. Review by Dmitry Shakin.

This wonderful, mystical and very expressive music comes directly from the heart. If I were asked to describe it
with three words, I would say beautiful, peaceful and more important, happy. Thats why I enjoy listening to it and
telling my audience about it.

Jim Brenholts from Awareness (Holistic Magazine) praises Tribal Awakening in the March/April 2006 issue.

“There are dozens - maybe hundreds - of CD's in this style. This one is certainly in the upper echelon.
This is a fun CD that holds its own within or without a healing session. Drew has invoked the spirit of Kokopelli, a
mischievous and playful spirit, and given him a wide berth. www.awarenessmag.com

Gene Bates of Whispering Wind Magazine writes on January 9th, 2006

“Tribal Awakening is simply stupendous! Looking like Johnny Depp's identical twin brother, Drew Bennett is a
very talented fellow. Playing everything from tribal drums and chimes to Native American flute, guitar and quartz
meditation bowl, Mr. Bennett has started my New Year off with one wonderful CD. One of my best bets for flute
album of the year. www.whisperingwind.com

Marcella Cirignola from Amazing Sounds writes on February 17th, 2006.

Drew Bennett is a talented Native American flutist. The music fluctuates between tribal mysticism and meditative
music, with a certain New Age touch. The flutes tend to take a soloist role most of the time, and, together with the
guitars and percussion, they transmit very intense feelings.
