A return to the recording studio by Babatunde Olatunji, the Nigerian percussion virtuoso whose 1959 album, DRUMS OF PASSION, first opened American ears to the power and spirituality of Nigerian music.The album features such guest players as master Brazilian percussionist Airto Moriera and noted rock guitarist Carlos Santana. The Olatunji tune "Jingo" was Santana's first single in 1969; three tracks on THE BEAT feature his trademark guitar soaring against the thunderous backing of Olatunji and his troupe of percussionists.

The album is Olatunji's tribute to the power of rhythm. As he puts it, "Rhythm is the soul of life. The whole universe revolves in rhythm. Everything and every human action revolves in rhythm."
