Product description


This Bombay-born percussionist first visited Europe in 1982, gigging with Don Cherry, then joining Oregon. In 1988, Gurtu released his first solo album, beginning a prolific output. Trilok tilts towards pure song this time around, milking the less likely collusion of Indian and African tradition, all sent through an electric jazz filter. Nearly every track has a strong vocal presence, with Esmeralda Sciascia and Zap Mama's Sabine Kabongo sharing most of the lead roles. Gurtu is, as usual, seated at his floor-level mini-kit, surrounded by tabla, ghatam [resonant clay pot] and his trusty bucket of water [great for plopping and splashing nature-boy sounds!]. The anthemic "Rajasthan" provides a stomping start, then the title track features a guesting Angelique Kidjo, her voice unhurried as it dominates a dramatic sound stage. The Benin-born Kidjo returns in more characteristically kicking form on "Africa Con India", while another great African singer drops in for "Big Brother"--Mali's Oumou Sangare engaging the funk, her kamelen n'goni player Kassim Sidibe jousting with sitarist Ravi Chary. This time out, Gurtu is quite reticent when it comes to showing-off, although Dinki Puriya does shine the spotlight on a tabla/sitar duet with Chary. --Martin Longley
