sven kacirek - The Kenya Sessions
In 2008, at the behest of the Goethe-Institut Nairobi, virtuoso experimental drummer and electronic producer Sven Kacirek travelled to Kenya on an extended trip as part of the Project Tracing Dance. He made a stack of live and field recordings which were later processed in his Hamburg studio and resulting in 'The Kenya Sessions'. Neatly eschewing any stereotypical cliches, Sven has created a sensitive and subtle electronic collage weaved with the beautiful vocals of 80-year old female vocalist Ogoya Nengo and the traditional string instrument 'Nyatiti' played by Okumo Korengo, colouring his music with a broad spectrum of emotions and a deftly structured narrative that rewards and unfolds on repeated listens. It sometime sounds like a Villalobos track that's taken a life of its own, or at others like Francisco Tristano transported to sunnier climes. Quite lush.
