If you fell in love with midori takada’s sublime couple of reissues in 2017, then you absolutely need her dizzying ensemble piece from 1981 featuring a transcendent fusion of marimba, vibraphone, bamboo percussion and synthesisers.
it captures the birth of her exploration of minimalism, African rhythmic tradition, and ambient music, and is unlike anything before or since. Drawing from central africa’s culture and music as well as the crucial notion that rhythms represent the very fabric of life, Midori Takada leads her ensemble into environmental heaven to create one of the highlights of her recording career. Riyl Yasuaki shimizu, haruomi hosono, Mariah, and bit of steve reich. a-mazing!
