Lovely, trance-y electronica with Indian/Malian vocals and World grooves. The third outing by Canadian producer Andrew McPherson and a fine lineup of musicians, vocalists and percussionists. Includes a remix of a Burhan Ocal number, which is always a good thing.
No FCCs detected – nothing in English, and the vocals are more another instrument than means to convey words, it seems.
I like 3, 5, 7 and esp. 6.
1. **swingy upbeat percussion with relaxed and trance-y electronics, interesting interplay of female Turkish and male Malian vocals.
2. **starts with several seconds of extremely low drone – then Indian Ghawwali vocals, relaxed instrumentation and cool hand percussion. Very dreamy.
3. ***crazy cool percussion, ethereal electronics. Cool Malian chanting.
4. **another very low intro, with drones fading in on waves, downtempo percussion and pretty piano, female Indian vocals.
5. ***hand percussion and gorgeous Malian stringed instrument and male vocals. Trap drum, bass and electronics come in after a few seconds, but it maintains quite a roots sound.
6. ****glitchy intro, upbeat percussion and rather rockin’ tune by a top Turkish artist, remixed for this project.
7. ***bit of odd vocal intro, then downbeat jazzy skank – kind of a relaxed funk groove.
8. *electronics and Ghawwali vocals, echo-y. Beat comes in and out, bits of guitar and some kind of reed instrument show up for moments.
9. *high electronic chimes intro, then very slow boopy percussion, strangeness and charm, mysterious female vocals.
