Exotic Dimensions is the musical project.
Producer Shumile attempts to make world music accessible to a large audience of people, particularly individuals who may not be acquainted with music from other countries.
The project appeals to people all around the world by introducing world music and talented musicians from many different countries (Taiwan, India, Jordan, Palestine, Mozambique, Finland, Greece, Hungary, England, Morocco, Iran, Lebanon, the United States and Japan).
The musical project assimilates different kinds of music, such as electric, classical, pop and world music, beyond usual genres and styles, not just imitating traditional music. The songs are accessible, emotional, mysterious, grand and exotic.
She hopes that people appreciate and value other cultures through listening to music across the globe.
