The opening and closing drum themes for Let Loose are by Jerry Granelli, recorded on Sandhills Reunion. The closing theme is from Drala by Peter Lieberson, recorded on Raising the Gaze. Thank you to both composers for their permission to use these excerpts from their work. Thank you also to Marvin Ross for his photographs of Thrangu Rinpoche.
