PATH TO SERENITY
Christopher takes his listeners one step further with his new release, “Path to Serenity,” the follow-up track to his successful 2023 album, “Remains to be Seen, Volume 1,” and “Remains to be Seen, Instrumentals, Volume 1.” EP.
Metaphysical and eclectic, energizing and calming at the same time. Once again, Christopher’s songwriting evolves as he moves from guitar and drums to step behind the hammered dulcimer, adding percussive melodies into the texture of his sound. This sonic journey is made even more interesting with the addition of the udu drum, an implosive and obscure instrument native to Nigeria.
