Album review“I would take the liberty to claim that this is one of the best albums produced by Marimba Plus! Inventive, colorful, energetic, positive, bright, savoury! Super groove, impressive sound! Outstanding musicians! Engaging solos! Executed with respect to the perennial folklore traditions, and at the same time enhanced with the musicians’ own personality. The vocalist, so careful in her sentence vibrations and...
...so organic in esthetics of Indian, Spanish, African and other traditions, leaves no doubt that she belongs to each and every of these cultures! Just think about “Marimba Chalan”! One would wonder if there is anything left to append to the traditional Indian music of such artists as Ravi Shankar, Trilok Gurtu, Lakshminarayana Subramaniam, Lakshminarayana Shankar and others, and yet Marimba Plus adds their own valid impression!
It’s a must-have in one’s music collection.
