サブライム・フリークエンシーズやファインダーズ・キーパーズとも共振しながら独自の視点で新旧さまざまな世界音楽に光を当て注目を集めるフランスの新興レーベル「アクフォン」が東南アジアのラオスをディグ! これまであまり注目されることのなかった同国の少数民族が娯楽や宴や儀式で歌い奏でる民謡・民俗音楽を、キンクゴングa.k.a.ロラン・ジャノーが現地でフィールド録音。 自然や暮らしと一体化したありのままのラオスの音色を堪能できる貴重な一枚となりました。 南北ラオスの音楽 ― チャンパーサック、アッタプー、セコン、サーラワン、ルアンナムター、ポンサリー ◆ 中国、ベトナム、カンボジア、タイとミャンマーに囲まれたインドシナ半島の内陸国家で、なにげに世界でも数少ない永世中立国のひとつでもあるラオス。その山岳地帯の少数民族が歌い奏でる現在進行形の民謡・民俗音楽をピックアップした世にも貴重な企画盤が、フランスの新興レーベル「アクフォン」からリリースに。 ◆ 企画監修・録音はロラン・ジャノー。「キンクゴング」名義でサブライム・フリークエンシーズやアタヴィスティックなどのレーベルにも作品を残す音楽プロデューサーです。ロランが、現地在住の人類学者らの協力を得ながら2006年から13年にかけて各所(チャンパーサック、アッタプー、セコン、サーラワン、ルアンナムター、ポンサリー)で敢行したフィールド・レコーディング音源をコンピレーション化。 ◆ 鐘や笙、口琴、太鼓などを用いた独特の音色や節回し、得も言われぬ音の間やドローン、アンビエンスが聞き込むほどにクセになる。いかにもトロピカル的な派手な装飾は一切ありませんが、自然や暮らしと一体化したありのままのラオスの音色を堪能できる貴重な作品となっております。 ◆ サブライム・フリークエンシーズやファインダーズ・キーパーズなどとも共振しつつ、発掘、再発、フィールド録音から現在進行形のエキゾ・エレクトロ・アクトまで、様々なタイプのリリースを手掛け急浮上を果たしたフランス発の新しい世界音楽レーベル、アクフォン。日本の江利チエミ、台湾のリリー・チャオ、インドネシアのガムラン、カンボジアのレジスタンス・バンドやスリランカのシンハリ&タミル歌謡に続く、またもその企画の妙がさく裂したナイスな一枚。 ◆ ブックレット日本語対訳付き。 => akuphone.com => akuphone.bandcamp.com => calentitomusic.blogspot.com/search/label/AKUPHONE

📢 Next on Akuphone‼️ (LP-CD-Digital) 🇱🇦 ️Music of Southern Laos : Provinces of Champasak, Attapeu, Sekong and Saravan. (AKU1009) 🇱🇦️ Music on Northern Laos : Provinces of Luang Namtha and Phongsaly. (AKU1010) 💰 Preorder now both volumes and save 4,90€ ! => akuphone.com 🔈 soundcloud.com/akuphone/sets/aku1009-10 📬 Shipped on 08/28/2018 Akuphone presents an outstanding recordings collection of various musical practices from the Laotian provinces of Champasak, Attapeu, Sekong, Saravan, Luang Namtha and Phongsaly. These documents are a perfect introduction to the traditional music of Laos minority groups. Popular modern music is widely spread but visitors are barely ever exposed to ancient acoustic practices from villages. As a matter of fact, mouth organs of various sizes exist among the Hmong and Bit as well as amazing vocal techniques among the Lantene, Ahka or Khmu who combine simultaneous singing and flute notes. This collection also compels one to discover the Brao gongs, the Triang bamboo flutes, the Lao, Ta Oy, Alak, OI, Pacoh or Nyaheun mouth organs as well as the powerful singing accompanying these instruments. Caught on the spot, these outstanding testimonies were collected between 2006 and 2013 by Laurent Jeanneau, aka KINK GONG. Through his researches, this self-taught ethnologist has gradually become one of the specialists of the field, building up a collection of complete and fascinating sound archives which contribute documenting parts of this immaterial heritage. MUSIC OF SOUTHERN LAOS AND MUSIC OF NORTHERN LAOS brings some light on a region of South East Asia still largely unknown from the general audience as well as the recently reborn ethnographic musical industry. This compilation will delight both molam/khene lovers and beginners unused to South East Asian sounds. Enclosed: liner notes in English, French and Japanese. Vinyl releases comes with redeem code.

"From grippingly jagged, edge-of-seat, to sun-stroked meditation and motorik jammers, The Dwarfs of East Gouza’s 2nd studio album catches Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls), Sam Shalabi and Maurice Louca expressing a driving, febrile sort of gnaw trance psychedelia in Cairo, Egypt, 2015. Practically worth it for the B-side’s 23 minute transition from quietly nerve jangling strings, organ to distorted electronic abstraction and skronky kosmiche." https://boomkat.com/products/dwarves-oea

💙💙💙💙 8/10 Norman Records Emerging magically from deep within the hot, dusty confines of -- no, not Holbeck -- the Agouza district of Cairo, are The Dwarfs of East Agouza أقزام شرق العجوزة. The band are fully worthy of our attention for their name alone; however, the trio of Alan, Sam and Maurice make a fine noise together which is by turns chaotic, energising and mesmeric. There can be no doubt that the extended jams these guys make have a careful structure about them and some sort of plan at the outset. Beats akin to intricate gamelan drumming are actually more freeform than they at first appear. Rubbery bass-lines slink hither and thither under jaunty percussion, punctuations of sax and art-rock-post-punk-jazz guitar. There’s also a plasticky synth (of course, rats can’t eat them!) to add to that North African stew. Two longform tracks, the first of which is particularly incendiary. Winner. Also: Can’t. Take. Eyes. Off. Sleeve. Art. (Norman records staff review)

Reissue of prime Afrobeat cuts by Mushapata, a former boxer whose later experience as bodyguard for Bob Marley’s summer 1980 tour of France lead him to covert to Rastafarianism and start making music. Saba-Saba Fighting or “fight for peace” was recorded between 1980 and 1984, and draws on Mushapata’s longhand love for the Blues, Soul and Rocksteady he grew up listening to in The DRC, before moving to Lyon in 1975 to pursue career as a boxer. Up top he comes off like a possessed Fela Kuti over the swingeing drums, horns and guitars of his Afrobeat ace Muanago Yé-Ye, then the reggae influence comes in on the Afrobeat-reggae hybrid Kambere Mushimbe, and much stronger on the lilting Reggae-soul of Mudongo Wangu, which is gilded with some really sweet On-U style digital inflections, and at a loping, sexy Reggae-disco title on Zambe Aponiyo.
