As the stage was reset for Santana they played this totally immersive world music. I was entranced by what I heard and I searched high and low to find out who that artist was after the concert. I had to have that recording 😉
I discovered the artist was Deep Forest. I found the CD on amazon and I play it to death, happily so.
Here’s the title track and cover from Deep Forest’s 1992 debut album.
This is a “rare and wonderful mix of ambient modern music and the songs of the pygmies of the Central African rainforest.” I hope you’ll find it as infectious as I do. The interaction between an indigenous culture and electronic ambience is striking. I love to just let the whole album just loop and take me to that trance place 🙂
