Rivertribe

Where words fail, music speaks. Imagine flying in the clouds looking at creation from God's point of view. The sun setting, dipping into a beautiful blue ocean, the sky, so blue that it hurts to merely look at it, the image of all creation crying out in adoration of its Creator. instrumental music has the power to conjure such images in the minds of its listeners. Rivertribe combines instruments from around the world to create music that takes listeners on a journey to places only conceived in the imagination. It breaks down walls to go where songs with words can't go.
