unbelievably, It was 50 years ago that Terry Riley's iconic minimalist composition 'In C' received its world premiere & to celebrate this anniversary, Africa Express release their version of the piece.

africa express is the organization that brings together musicians from multiple cultures, continents & genres, featuring mainstays Damon Albarn, Brian Eno & Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner. the composer himself says : "I am overwhelmed & delighted. I was not quite prepared for such an incredible journey, hearing the soul of Africa in joyous flight over those 53 patterns of ‘In C’. This ensemble feeds the piece with ancient threads of musical wisdom & humanity indicating to me that this work is a vessel ready to receive & be shaped by the spontaneous feelings & colours of the magician/musician". "who would have guessed koras & kalimbas would turn out to be the perfect delivery mechanism for this most ecstatic & flighty of minimalist compositions?" 8/10 - uncut.
