"The true way of progressing through music is to evolve freely, to go forward, not caring what others think, and in this way, together with one's development in music, to harmonize the life of one's soul, one's surroundings, and one's affairs." ~ Hazrat Inayat Khan

Bass guitar and keyboard player Gino Foti is a world fusion musician on Net Dot Music, an independent record label specializing in instrumental fusion: all-instrumental music that blends several styles and genres.

His catalog explores the relationships between diverse musical traditions, and the dichotomy of rhythm & melody of the bass guitar, primarily by integrating ethnic sonorities into his jazz-rock palette. If you are an avid listener of jazz fusion, world music, or related instrumental hybrids like world beat and ethnic fusion - even classical, meditation, ambient, and prog rock - you will probably connect with his music.
