RHYTHMS OF OUR MEMORY
NEW DIRECTIONS IN AFRO MUSIC / Volume 3
2015 Remastered Version
This second collection of Franck Biyong's material is a challenging compilation of his most adventurous music to date, with limited commercial potential needless to say. But who really cares about that? Actually, you shouldn't.
Based on the first ever official celebration of the abolition of Slavery in France that took place 9 years ago, this music dives deeper into a dark night of the soul state of mind and moves from free-form Afro Funk to lyrical tone poems.
The highlight tracks include fine orchestrations combined with the spirit of outer space improvised music. These rhythms of our memory pay homage to a long time oral tradition: continuity and spontaneity.
