For their album with Tuvan Shaman Nikolay Oorzhak, compared to the previous, more jazz orientated release , the group here shows a different, and more ethnic inspired sound, based on improvisation which is theme-related, and is building consciously on combinations of well fitting sounds. Songs are now of minor importance.. Each member contributes to this in a specific way, so that together something happens on different levels, slowly describing, exploring and then if possible, also transforming and transcending its content.

The first track, “Oortapes” starts calmly with throat singing and didgeridoo, and there are build up harmonic tensions mostly. Great in the first few tracks especially is that there are added (with keyboards ?) some feeling of background sounds that replace a natural environment (by Slava Logutin ?). On the second track, “OorDance” I have the impression that there are also added some small pre-recorded throat singing textures, and exactly fitting very natural sounds of overtone keyboards. On the 5th track I even think I hear insect-like harmonies be added to the global harmonies. Another thoughtful and clever interpretation comes from drummer Kirill Kachanov who adapts his playing with drums so well it becomes closer to a hand percussion rhythmic tonality and sensibility. Jazzy piano makes the improvisations always moody. Kate Kandalina this time is much more of a rock singer ; she sings with heavy strength in her voice.

Nikolay Oorzaak not only adds with his vocal technique descriptive truly imaginable worlds, always building along with the group at first, then, like a real shaman he also always changes the spheres in a benefit of a multi-dimensional conscious experience. While Kate sings more heavy than ever, even the wildest exaggerations are adapted in dialoguing ideas, and then transcending into a natural feeling. On “Hunter” for instance she goes wild, almost aggressive, with a second voice as overtone. The shamanic voice then goes in contra-attack. The song is about the hunter, expressed with fire. She continues with high toned pushed singing, but then the improvisation calms down first in a walking rhythm, changing sounds and nature. “Kate’s Song” is the only real song-focused track, most comparable to the previous album, with Kate singing, accompanied by piano only. “NewAgeDance” is based upon a whole different idea.

It starts calmly improvised with a sax like dugs, with sounds of keyboards that partly recalls a bit, Nature, but this time also with the addition of some new age meditative sounds. Moody sax, flute, and jazz drum comes in and build it up further. But then suddenly the sphere is broken into a challenging change, with an avant-garde idea of wilder sounds on sax, a rocking bass, fitting throat singing, almost neo-prog keyboards with piano. The track evolves to all kinds of different moods, rather intuitively and emotional. It is not really leading to a composition, but has vividly working changing tensions, just like the winds. It ends with a rather melancholic goodbye with singing and throat singing. So even with no specific structural composition here happens a real emotional evolution, and when suddenly 2 throat singers appear, the ending sounds like sung to end with a cured feeling. The bis/bonus track is much more of a jazz improvisation, which went completely in the group’s entity, forgetting the individuality of each member, because now all participate equally. A great ending for a special album.

Dictamen

Creo que sería labor de los Ministerios de Cultura de cada país difundir la cultura musical y facilitar su acceso sin cortapisas.
Naturalmente queda a criterio de cada cual que, una vez escuchado, pueda adquirirlo en su tienda habitual, supuesto válido sólo para un reducido número de discos, ya que muchos de ellos no están en los circuitos comerciales convencionales y acceder a su compra en algunos casos será harto difícil cuando no imposible.
En esta página no hay finalidad económica alguna. Única y exclusivamente el deseo de ayudar a que disfrutes con algo tan maravilloso como es la música.
Mi gratitud a los autores que nos hacen disfrutar de sus creaciones y también a todos aquellos que permiten que llegue a nosotros, facilitando que podamos ampliar nuestra cultura y sensibilidad, constituyendose así en un extraordinario regalo.

La Música


La música es el corazón de la vida. Por ella habla el amor; sin ella no hay bien posible y con ella todo es hermoso.
La música puede dar nombre a lo innombrable y comunicar lo desconocido.
La música es sinónimo de libertad, de tocar lo que quieras y como quieras, siempre que sea bueno y tenga pasión, que la música sea el alimento del amor.
