    Label: Black Eye Watching

    Rich, Afro-pop rhythms are woven with proverbs and ancient history by this master drummer and his fellow Bizungs (hereditary talking drum masters of Northern Ghana). The sublime rhythms are bolstered on some songs with funky rock interjections and other contemporary craftwork.

    Unless you are an avid fan of Basque music, you probably have never heard of the main instrument utilized here. It was banned (along with the Basque language) under the harsh Franco rule in Spain. The txalaparta, (pronounced CHOLL-uh-PART-uh) is comprised of wooden planks laid over trestles and struck with sticks held vertically. Although it sounds kind of like a steel drum at times, the driving duo behind this project pushes the boundaries to include throat singing and other folk infusions in their unique compositions.

    Shye ben Tzur is a Hebrew Qawwali singer that has been busy cultivating mystical experiences into contemporary songs. “Shoshan” is a successful experiment employing Hebrew poetry with Flamenco guitars, plus soaring Rajastan vocals in addition to the flavorful Indian and Afro rhythms. The music sways from trance to ecstatic while retaining its open awareness and devotional nature.

    With smooth soul vibes with an Irie mindset, an all star band provides the flowing funk, rippling rock, and hip-swaying hip hop which. These are beautifully buffeted by the socially conscious, incredibly blissful, and heartfelt vocal offerings of this former Soulive singer.
