Music from the source,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the heart of the moon (Audio CD)
Radio3 was analysing/describing the capturing of tracks in Africa, turned out to be Mali, turned out to be AFK and TD.
I just heard the two names mentioned in one sentence, raced to this page and ordered. That was four/five days ago. Now on sixth hearing it is my top CD.
It does help if you know 'Talking Timbuktu' and 'New Ancient Strings'.
Their sleeve says this music is inspired by styles from the 1950's era. I would put its effects back one or two millenia. Probably humans never lived without aggression, but this music seems to come from pre-greco-judeo-christian culture and displays human soulfulness without trace of aggression.
I certainly am glad I could be introduced to this in summer breathing warm fresh air. Their music sounds as if it comes from the ultimate source of calm summer zephyrs.
