an album studded with legends, patti smith is joined by philip glass and mulatu astatke to create a darkly entrancing web of super-conscious experiences.

A sonic cross-continental experience, ‘Mummer Love’ is the second album in the Perfect Vision triptych collaboration between Soundwalk Collective and Patti Smith. For this body of work, Soundwalk Collective journeyed to Africa to explore the intricacies of Arthur Rimbaud’s most obscure period. Further contributions to the album come from Mulatu Astatke, widely considered the father of Ethio-jazz, and Philip Glass, who’s long felt a connection to Sufi music – here coming together and evoking a call and response between piano and vocals of the Sufi masters. “a compelling blend of ambience, minimalism, poetry and devotion” 8/10 - uncut.
