“Neftali’s Beast” first appeared on the music scene in 1980 with “Land Of The Drums” released on Capital Records as a single. The song became a dance hit in Europe and a “must have” for DJs today. Land of the drums introduced animal sounds in rhythm along with instruments in a very unique way with a Mellotron.
Neftali recently went on a sound expedition discovering pure“Animal Music”! Animal music is a new genre and art form using 100% animal sounds; no kick drum, no hand claps, no hi-hat or keyboards were used. Neftali was out to prove an “all animal recording" could be made and become popular as a new art form and not a novolty. It took Neftali 12 months to cut and paste in real time the hundreds of pieces of animal sounds, no sequencing. Neftali wanted a pure organic creation. Being the first of it’s kind Neftali released the demo version of “Animals United In Song” as a time stamp for a new genre in October 2013.
Neftali: "The purpose for creating this recordings is to give endangered animals a voice. Too many animals are becoming extinct and hopefully this song will inspire people to help. My song shows a different way of presenting animal vocalization and awareness. 50% of the writers royalties will go to species survival groups throughout the world such as "Pandrillus". If you are or know of such a group in need please contact us to get on the funding list.
