it is way too problematic to tag this album of 4 compositions because
of involving way too a little
and on the other side much
unusual and not quite daily sounds.
It was recorded at home employing Audacity and the instruments were a
rain stick, and a storm imitator with
some delay effects. Given
that kalimba can be
categorized as an instrument
in the ethnic music world and its use in the popular music is quite
limited the recent outing can be pigeonholed both in the compartments
of experimental/avant-garde, and ethnic music. Moreover, one can
discern very closeness to the nature as if being played under the
sunny (or cloudy – it does not
make difference though) sky somewhere nearby the forest. In fact, the
title suggests it. The
elemental touch can always be welcomed.
The result is simple, pure,
and even divine. The nature has been a topic for the artist because some days after the release of this issue he issued another similar album Oceans & Waves. The issue
is a part of the discography of Rejected Netlabel.
