An exciting and successful world journey of music and culture
Fitted together with brief gems of Stomp's New York rhythms, this film explores the rhythmic cultures of many diverse peoples. The opening scene got my foot tapping and I didn't stop for the whole experience. Lovers of world music will learn something as the film moves around the globe, and lovers of rhythms will enjoy the variety of music showcased by these excellent musicians. Like Stomp's stage show, the film's appeal is difficult to describe, but the pace of excitement is maintained throughout the film. I saw this in an IMAX theatre, and the close-ups that punctuate the breaks from time to time were five stories tall and wonderful to behold. All sources of sound are explored by Stomp and their musical guests, from mouths and other body parts, to drums, bells, and thumb pianos. If you enjoy music, you will love this film - everybody I've talked to about "Pulse" have!
