I have the courage to say that this is one of the best albums by Marimba Plus! It is inventive, colorful, energetic, positive, sunny, delicious! Great groove, great sound! Wonderful musicians! Interesting solos! Played with respect to the long-standing and deep folk traditions but at the same time with an original attitude towards them. I have never heard a vocalist as careful as Tatiana with the vibration an the end of phrases and who is so organically in the aesthetics of Indian, Spanish, African and other traditions. You may sometimes believe that her roots belong to different nations! Talking about a composition called Marimba Chalan… One wonders if there could be anything interesting made in traditional Indian music after such musicians as Ravi Shankar, Trilok Gurtu, Lakshminarayana Subramaniam, Lakshminarayana Shankar and many others. But Marimba Plus has been able to express a personal attitude to this branch of culture!
This album would be great addition to your collection.
