Moscow ethno-label Sketis continues to amaze as the diversity of its releases, as well as their quality, but also the elementary courage - well, who are based in Russia, it would seem, would ever think publishing "modern jazz interpretations of ancient Sufi music." This is the subtitle is on the cover of this CD, and it accurately reflects the content of the album. There are two unique band met.The first is the Latvian ethno-jazz band Baraka connecting improvisation, rap and electronics - that is, that in the early 90s in London was generally called acid jazz - with (and here begins surprises) of Central Asian music. The second team, Samo is the brightest representatives of the music itself.
Born and based itself in the bowels of the Museum of Musical Instruments Gurminj in Dushanbe, they store and continue the tradition of Sufi folklore Badakhshan. Their records and served as material for remixes Baltic colleagues.Fully preserving the vocal line of the original, with its religious and mystical texts of Persian classics such as Rumi, Hafez, Khayyam, Sherazi and carefully handling a batch of authentic instruments, Baraka successfully adapted this natural trance music more accessible to a European ear sound electronic jazz, ambient jungle and oriental lounge. It is clear that such products are intended trained listeners, lovers of oriental spices. But apart from exotics want to emphasize once again the highest quality materials: a global level.
