The One World Festival DVD cover
MEGAWAVE Records MEGW 0266
Mixing Flamenco, Middle Eastern, Spanish and Western motifs, Moodafaruka creates a tapestry of sound that is both familiar and new.  In 1999, guitarist Rom Ryan, already with two successful solo releases, began collaborating with different artists. Thus began the World Fusion group Moodafaruka. They have released five CDs to rave reviews, have radio play around the globe, and thousands in sales:  La Luna Lounge in 1999, Zazu in 2001, Blame It On The Moon in 2004, and Essential Moodafaruka and Who R U in 2008.  Along the way, Rom expanded his musical collaborations with dance and founded the One World Festival. This DVD captures some of the performances of the 2008 One World Festival.
"We are one world, stewards of this planet for a short time; we should all find a way to get along together."
