SPIRITS INTO SOUNDS
NEW DIRECTIONS IN AFRO MUSIC / Volume 2

As so called "world-music" emerged in the western hemisphere decades ago, the concept of Afro-Jazz pioneered in the late
sixties and early seventies gradually vanished...

This rare record explores this very dimension of futuristic sounds
in a unique blend of controlled-freedom music where the lines blur between collective improvisations, tight Afro beat jams with M’base sounding horn lines, strong percussive work, Moog synthesizers and rock guitars.

This inspired music based on a different conception of timing and
groove is pointing towards the future...Some call it "Afrolectric"...

Produced & Arranged by Franck Biyong
