✨✧ Leo Kupper/Hossein MalekOrient Occident ... CD
Sub Rosa (Belgium), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful combination of cultures and ideas – a set that features some original recordings by Hossein Malek on the santur – that many-stringed instrument of Mid-East origin, handled with a very heavenly sound – alongside newer recordings by Leo Kupper, which use some santur, and other percussion and electronics to cascade notes and tones in a similar mode! The album balances between progressive tracks by each artist – and three long "Inventions" by Malek are juxtaposed with Kupper titles that include "Santur Et Oscines", "Parcours Pour Santur", and "Remember Hossein Malek" – all very long and hypnotic!

VariousBiguine – Anthologie De La Tradition Musicale Antillaise Vol 4 1930 to 1954 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $18.99 29.99
One of the coolest styles of music in the Caribbean – and one that never got as much exposure as it should in the Anglo world at the time – even though there's a fair bit of jazz at play in the sounds on this collection! Biguine's a very unique hybrid from the Antilles – a mixture of early jazz, Latin rhythms, and some of the island vocal modes of the period – all given a sharper focus, with a new sort of post-colonial energy – more than enough class too reach audiences in Paris, but enough bite to rival small combo creole jazz too. The package is wonderful – 3CDs' worth of material, with 66 tracks in all – divided up into three different strands of biguine, with notes in both English and French. Includes work by Robert Mavounzy, Felix Valvert, Orchestre Sensia, Leona Gabriel, Nelly Lungla, Eugene Delouche, Kaukira Boys, Rico's Creole Band, Bal Blomet, Maiotte Almaby, and others. CD
