Mystic Kiss - CD
(Massive Music) Very Exotic
looking packaging and musicians a hint of genre/gender blending
world music. They bring together Indian, electronica and pop
into one sound. On a few songs
such as "Tatu" and the french "Le Miroir” the songs shine
through and the lyrics fit right in.
Lots of potential!-- Grog Mutant (2006) - thechickenfishspeaks.com

"Critical Review"

Mystic Kiss
Fontain's M.U.S.E.
Beat Magic
www.fontainsmuse.com
Vocalist, songwriter, and instrumentalist Fontain
Riddle joined by sitar and bass player Farhan
Khan weave a magical tapestry of exotic music.
Joined by other artists they deliver in a magical
sense, a blend of Mid-eastern beats with a World
Music sense. This creates a meld of Eastern and
Western music with an accessible groove.
The lyrics are of love, passion, magic, and
mystery-the music conjures up images of belly
dancers around a fire...and in other places one is
invited towards contemplation. The mix can go
from slow to frenzied. The album has 13 short but
powerful tracks.
It is truly an interesting listening experience!

Bio

About Fontain’s M.U.S.E.
This unique duo has enraptured audiences throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles and San Diego with their mix of Improvisation, Alternative and Eastern styles since 2000. Fontain’s M.U.S.E. has performed for the popular Sonoma County, Health and Harmony Festival as well Techno Tribal Groove Temple, Summer of Love 40th Anniversary in Monterey CA and Burning Man Decompression San Francisco. They have made many friends and fans appearing in their monthly theatrical show with the Magique Bazaar at the Historic Gas Lighter Theater. Recently, at the Bala Yoga, a well-known Hollywood dance hall and health center they enchanted a full house of adoring fans. This dynamic duo’s live performances can include synchronized acrobats, magicians, stilt walkers, and muses of all sorts given the venue opportunities. A local favorite among belly dance schools, their performances always inspire the audience to join-in the fun and creativity.
Fontain Riddle: Spirited vocalist, songwriter and instrumentalist Fontain Riddle combines cultures, dreams and a keen interpretation of life’s experiences to evolve her music. Her inspiration comes from eastern philosophy, politics, dancers, jazz, friends, books, even bad love experiences. Having been raised in the internationally diverse Washington D.C. area, Fontain’s early musical influences were formed by the close bonds she made with several Indian and Pakistani neighbors who played Indian classical and folk music at family gatherings.

She went on to perform professionally through high school at local Sarasota jazz cafes and restaurants. After earning her BFA from Ringling School of Art, she toured nationally performing for audiences throughout 46 States and internationally, including countries such as Singapore, Malaysia and France. She returned state side to earn her masters and through a grand note of synchronicity she met Farhan Khan during music engineering class and the story continues…

Farhan Khan: Beat and groove producer Farhan Khan is originally from Karachi, Pakistan. He plays sitar, guitar and bass guitar fluently. His unique style has created a perfect balance between East and West for Fontain’s M.U.S.E. with his intense dance grooves, and multinational instrumentation captivating the modern listener. He is a sitar student of the internationally famous Habib Khan and is a graduate of Musicians Institute in Hollywood California and has earned his BA in music engineering from Cogswell College in Sunnyvale California. East meets West in the left and right hands of Farhan Khan and the story continues…

Their collaboration and creation, Mystic Kiss is a blend of diverse styles including world-beat, new age, pop, electronica and jazz. Their song "Sacred Geometry" from this CD has won an honorable mention in Billboards 14th annual World Song Contest. Like Gypsies, each track travels to an exotic horizon and exposes the listener to a unique sonic experience that is both powerful and soothing. Radiating with hypnotic lyrical themes and infectious melody hooks that span the spectrum of spiritual, thought-provoking, psychedelic, move your body experience!
