" Passing Through "
Terry Lee Whetstone`s new band

Terry Lee and his New Group " Passing Through"

Terry Lee Whetstone: on flute  

Trevor Stewart: on Stick and violin  

Rik Stevenson: on digeridoo  

Dennis Balderez: on djembe and congas  

Arnold Jaso: on congas, bongos and rain stick  

What are the groups musical influences?
  The Great Within - The music is inspired by any Life or art that creates a positive atmosphere and that is produced for the enrichment of mankind.
Tell us some background info:
 The music of PASSING THROUGH is as diverse as the cultural backgrounds of it's members. There are strong roots of Native American, Axtec and Mayan Indians, Australia and Indonesia, yet the influence is completely universal speaking to not only the conscious mind but to also the subconscious mind and soul.
More than just "Meditative" or "World Fusion" - what do you consider your style of music??
 The style of the music is difficult to put to words because it draws from so many sources-world music, jaz folk and newage might be common genres to associate with the music. But,  it is so much more than this and it reaches inside of you to set your soul at rest like a new born baby rapped up in their mothers arms next to her breast. With various instrumentation (including digeridoos, djembes, Chapman Stick, various American Indian flutes, along with other wind instruments) and styles, it is truly a sound of it's own.
