luka productions Fasokan (LP, £21.50)
New age music from West Africa. Lush and hypnotic dreamscapes combine traditional instrumentation with sweeping electronics, field recordings and soothing affirmations. Bamako based composer Luka Productions delves into avant-griot, bringing ancient music into the 21st century. The songs are meditative and sage, as voices guide the listener through ways of living, both in traditional villages and the modern world. Inspired by early electronic music, library records and new age, this is easily one of the most left field recordings to ever come out of Mali. Repress.
